Marastan Military D868771-5 Mercenary Battalion Striker Contract

Description[edit]

Native built vehicles are constructed within the limits of the TL–5 machinery available. They eschew import dependent systems.

Doctrine & Strategy (Operations)[edit]

Military planners are pragmatic and build designs that squeeze optimal performance from inferior lower technology. These designs are employed intelligently to play to their strengths and mitigate their weaknesses. Invaders with advanced technology may be surprised by the lethality of these weapons systems when tactics are devised to pit their strengths against an invader's weaknesses. They also serve to provide internal security functions and deal with megacorporations with designs on native resources. These forces have been tested against mercenary units who expected to roll over these tenacious defenders.
