2nd Ghost Battalion "The Bronze Ghosts"

Description:

2nd Ghost (Rifle Infantry) Battalion – Regular/Questionable The “Bronze Ghosts”

The 2nd Ghost Battalion was organized from recruits garnered from across Sangria, who occupy key command positions, including its command company, and from the large number of conscripted troopers captured during the battle of Islas Brasilera.

After nearly a year of training in their cantonments at Fort Boomerang, they were quietly assigned as the garrison at * Castle Corazón, under the unit’s internal protocol, “Operation Eagle Eye”. They partly serve in readying the facility for long-term occupation by the Iron Dingoes main line forces, and partly to begin formal occupation of the site by a relatively loyal force. The unit has responsibility of the security at the nearby Corazón Airfield, and they occupy the barracks at Level 7 of the attached fortress installation.

Officers : In late-3025, Captain Paula “Kaliente” Perez was given command of the unit, after many years of loyalty and line work. She stresses scouting, survival training and sniper rifle work among all her platoons, and the young soldiers under her have come to respect her talents in this regard.

Tactics : The 2nd Ghost Battalion is essentially a typical Iron Dingoes rifle infantry force, raised as a garrison force, though under-strength. The unit has trained in small unit tactics, and has some experience in defending against small guerrilla forces, having worked closely with the militia from The (Territorial) District of Corazón. They are also trained in simple anti-armor and anti-Mech tactics.

Since falling under the command of Captain Perez, the unit has placed a stress on individual marksmanship and spends much of their time in the nearby jungles working closely with the regional militia of The (Territorial) District of Corazón.

Support : The 2nd Ghost Battalion has been equipped with standard combat armor, helmet, and pulse laser rifle of the Iron Dingoes Infantry Field Kit (3023). As heavy weapons support, each squad deploys a single M56A2 “Smartgun”.

For technical support, the 2nd Ghost Battalion does not have any integral technical forces, and depends largely on itself for technical support. As typical rifle infantry, however, they have few needs they cannot resolve themselves.

The unit is only assigned a single “Hellbender” Jeep to each of its command elements, and no other vehicles or heavy weapons systems.

Bio:

The 2nd Ghost Battalion began operations on December 1st, 3025, when it was issued orders and began occupation of the site at * Castle Corazón.

On December 23rd, the Command Platoon and 1st Company were given a temporary reassignment, along with a couple Line Technical Squads to the * Deep Ice One facility, to establish a presence and prepare for the inevitable return of the techs who check on the facility from time to time.

Throughout 3026-27, the unit alternated its squads in occupation of the Deep Ice One complex, until in mid-3027, the facility began to come on-line for production, and the unit was largely relieved of its duties by the assignment of various training cadre forces to the task of protecting this valuable facility. By late-3027, the unit was permanently back to protecting the * Castle Corazón facility under “Operation Eagle Eye”.

The facility was granted several squads of new recruits throughout 3027, bringing the unit into full reinforcement by the start of 3028. These forces, mostly loyal shadow recruits from the unit’s educational programs, are seen as future officers and leaders of other important infantry formations across the unit’s structure.
