The Cydian Death Squadron is a military serves the Cydia (world).

  • It is an organized, interstellar fleet.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

An irregular forces more akin to a militia, composed of ship captains tasked with providing protection for shipping.

Goals (Mission)[edit]

The safety and security of the people of Cydia (world).

Strategy & Doctrine (Operations)[edit]

Economy of action is the optimal approach. Concern for resource preservation is part of the private ownership of the vessels making up the force. Government support will only get you so far.

Rank & Grade (Hierarchy)[edit]

The council is made up of all the senior ship captains. These captains then elect one of their members to be the acting commodore for task force sized operations and a mission by mission basis. No commodore has ever served longer than a year in the post, even during times of war. The willingness to step down and let another take up the lead, for good or ill is what binds the loyalty of all the crews. Personal freedom and personal responsibility and accountability unto death is the glue of the "organization."

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

These current expedient measures are the result of more dramatic declines from the past.

Tables of Organization (Organizational Structure)[edit]

A flotilla of ten, Cydian Katori class Attack Scouts was built and equipped by unknown parties working through fronts and corporate subsidiaries. Operating near Cydia (world), these are not major combatants and are better suited to reconnaissance. Their massed fighters are equal to a single fighter squadron. The scouts have enough fuel for a single jump 2. They carry a small squad of marines for boarding actions. The limits of their cargo bays, necessitate as few freighters be brought along to carry off loot and booty.

Cydian Azuma class Micro Fighter

These are fast and well armored. They are good as pursuit vessels to chase down prey. The computer is limited by the lack of a bridge and they are ill suited for taking on more sophisticated military vessels. Commerce raiding is a likely goal. They lack life support endurance and therefore combat range.
