* The Whiteshield Training Cadre
Small Cadre Force
Often simply referred to as the Whiteknights, the Whiteshield Training Cadre is a small platoon-sized unit assigned to Islas Brasilera on long-term assignment, to assist the local government in training a full-time militia force. It was also believed that having * “The Iron Dingoes” flag present might forestall casual attack of the new possession.
Led by the relatively young Lt JG Silas Albuquerque, the unit only numbers a complete platoon of troopers trained as Marines, but they have been raised through the aegis of * “The Dingo Cub Scouts” and are incredibly loyal to the unit. Most are quite young, but they are disciplined and eager to prove themselves and their training.
The unit technically falls under the aegis of * “The Cerberus Command”, but operate fairly independently with little close over-sight.
Support : The unit deployed with EVA Suits – “Prometheus Class”, and L2 “Maser” Laser Assault Rifles to continue training as marines, in addition to their traditional Iron Dingoes Infantry Field Kit (3023)s. The unit does not have any integral technical or support services, nor any other special equipment beyond their integral Wheeled APCs, though they have all been issued a set of RC-SH01 “Bulwark” Ballistic Riot Shields and Stun Batons.
