The 4th Motorized Infantry Battalion, Sangrian Army - "Garrison's Own"

Defenders of the District of Garcia

Description:

4th Motorized Infantry Battalion “Garrison’s Own” – Mixed Arms Battalion / Green / Questionable

Originally organized from local recruits, the 4th Mobile Infantry Battalion is a growing military unit that has been trained and well-paid for its efforts, to eventually patrol and defend The District of Garcia. The unit is a combined-arms battalion, and includes infantry, armor and Mechs. Through constant work and careful recruitment, combined with actual experience, the unit has developed into a cohesive whole, showing both talented individuals and well-trained crews..

Officers : Tech Petros Vagarez is the lead logistics officer in the unit, and deals with the many personnel issues any new unit faces. He answers for many non-military things, especially over new recruits. The 4th Battalion has not acquired any other notable officers at this time, though it is commanded by an experienced officer from the Sangrian capital.

Tactics : The 4th Battalion is trained in basic military defense, specializing in rapid local deployment and garrison work. The Jungle Company is trained to employ the BattleMech component of the unit, and its infantry are trained in anti-Mech operations to support these efforts.

Support : 4th Motorized Infantry Battalion has been equipped with a collection of HG-762 “Holy Grail” Assault Rifle supplied by the Sangrian Military, and each soldier is also equipped with a set of surplus Taurian Concordat uniforms, boots, belt and canteen. In addition, most have acquired basic backpacks, and often sport various private small arms, knives and machetes. They traditionally only possessed armor, helmets and other gear if it was privately acquired by their families, or if they take it off an opponent in combat, but gained a wide assortment of equipment from their trainers in the Iron Dngoes, as cast-off militia-rated gear.

For technical support, the 4th Battalion has a number of techs locally recruited and assigned to a central “Logistics” pool for their maintenance requirements. While new troopers are busy training and learning basic combat skills and how to be a soldier, the longer-termed members have been involved in long-term advanced vehicle training. Administration remains sufficient at this time, due mostly to efforts to assist in constant careful recruitment, and in establishing a core of command officers for the organization of the troops. Some of these troopers have proven very capable and begun advanced training as Mech pilots, while a handful has proven to be good tactical leaders.

The infantry units employs a number of Light Utility Trucks to keep them “mobile” or motorized, and to haul each unit’s AC/5 Field Guns. Several “surplus” vehicles have been supplied from the Iron Dingoes own reserve fleet, to boost logistics and command abilities. The unit has also been supplied with FLE-4 Flea “Trooper” BattleMechs, and Scorpion Light Tanks, to give it the punch it required as a “Mixed Arms Battalion”, though it will continue to depend heavily on simple rifle infantry for its day-to-day operations, supplemented at the platoon level with their AC/5 Field Guns.
