Description (Specifications)[edit]

Infantry trained in the speciality of deployment from space (or atmosphere) are Jump Troops.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The earliest Jump Troops in Solomani history were Paratroops able to deploy from Aircraft used in pre-space-flight planetary wars. Those deployable from space were available to the Terran Confederation against the Ziru Sirka (and by the Ziru Sirka itself) during the Interstellar Wars[1].

These troops continued to be deployed even during the Aslan Border Wars[2] during the Long Night.

n.b. While Imperial Marines are equipped for orbital deployment, Marines are generally categorised separately.[3]

The Imperium deployed Jump Troops both in the Solomani Rim War[4] and Fifth Frontier War[5].
