  • It carries a single subcraft. The squad of 12 marines is lead by a junior officer trained in forward observation, who is assisted by a senior NCO. They are equipped with chameleon combat armor, grav flight harnesses and Gauss weapons. SOP is for the marines to jump from the Skiff once they enter a suitable atmosphere where they can soar for km and swoop in for stealthy insertions. They excel at covert commando raids, using their talons to shred sentries in near silence.
  • The carry a crew of two: pilot and weapons officer and 12 marines.
