Description (Specifications)[edit]

The 5703rd Lift Cavalry is a combat maneuver element of the Imperial Army of the Five Sisters Subsector Field Army. It is an organic combined arms unit of lightly-armored, medium-weight lift vehicles, and is organized differently from the lift infantry or lift armored brigade combat teams. The brigade implements network-centric joint warfare doctrines, deploying swift lift vehicles and highly mobile medium infantry to conduct full-spectrum combat operations.

Raised just prior to the Fifth Frontier War in 1103 it was was barely operational in time to deploy for combat operations in the sword worlds campaigns winning battle honors on Tyrfing and Beater in 1110.

The Lift Cavalry Brigade is equipped to TL–13 standards.


The Lift Armored Cavalry Brigade (LACB) achieves decisive action with combinedarms at the saber troop company level by applying the effects of direct fires from the medium grav-tanks, indirect fires from remote MRLs and high-energy mobile artillery, and joint effects of other services to support the mounted/dismounted assault. The Lift Armored Cavalry Brigade possesses a substantial capability, through its dismounts and reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition units, to place units and troopers in positions of advantage throughout the area of operations.

Tactically, the LACB has versatile mobility with the lift technology (grav) that combines the best capabilities of mechanized and light infantry organizations in a 3-dimensional mobility package through complex, close urban. and rough terrains, The mobility it allows for a rapid repositioning capability that light forces lack. The 3-dimensional tactical mobility and allows the LACB to strike the enemy in depth, agile redeployment of its reserve rapidly, secure lines of communications, and conduct nonlinear troop and squadron fights and essential RSTA operations in noncontiguous areas of operation. While grav technology enhances the LACB mobility, subordinate units are not tethered to the vehicles.
