These TL–7 forces are optimized for rapid attack. They used a combined arms approach to rapidly insert troops at the critical location at the correct time. Reinforcements and sustained operations are not their forte.

Omicron Faction Forces (Military) Description[edit]

There is a reliance on airborne and air cushion vehicles in this military unit. It does have decent organic support capability for logistical, medical, maintenance and food. This helps maintain high morale.

Omicron Faction Forces (Military) Doctrine & Strategy[edit]

Economy of force is critical. A full frontal assault is not a fight that this unit can afford. The SMGs and swords emphasize the close quarters rapid assault concept these forces embody. They like to attack at night in densely populated areas. Commando strikes, kidnapping, prisoners, and demolition are critical to disrupting enemy infrastructure. They maintain four small bases on Home. One for central army command and support headquarters and three squadrons forward deploy to secure national interests.

Omicron Faction Forces (Military) History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

When the populations of the major powers were higher this nation would think nothing of sacrificing large units to achieve goals. Long sieges were commonplace. History and the dark times taught them to fight an unconventional war, strike where you are not expected. Leave the enemy off balance and unsure of your goals. Small teams in the right place at the right time are far more valuable than large lumbering forces who are static and out of position.
