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.
Whiteshield (Mechanized) Training Cadre (3025)
The Whiteshield Training Cadre was formed in late-3024, and was officially contracted on January 1st, 3025, to serve the Islas Brasilera militia as a core for their training. This contract was known officially as Contract – Operation : “Waving-the-Flag”.
The contract was completed successfully, and the unit returned back into regular Iron Dingoes service in February, 3027.
They were officially assigned as the marine force for the defense of * Deep Ice One a month after their release, and moved to take over its protection, relieving the last of 2nd Ghost Battalion “The Bronze Ghosts”‘s forces. The unit’s position as an independent force was therefore removed, and the unit was dropped from regular service records.
