Valkyrie Special Missions/Operations Regiment OOB

Post by Fyrwulf » Wed Jul 28, 2010 10:30 pm

This is the Order of Battle for the Valkyrie Special Missions/Operations Regiment from my Taiyo no Ryuu alternate universe (the one that I've been posting designs for). The universe itself will be fleshed out when I start writing the Taiyo no Ryuu saga and the Valkyrie SMOR's exploits will be covered in a side story to be called The Valkyries of Asgard.

"Special Missions/Operations" means to me lightening fast, in and out operations with overwhelming firepower. Your unit sound very heavy and ponderous to me, IMHO.

If you would like a bit of advice, restructure your unit using fast mediums and heavies with just maybe one company of 4/6 heavies/ assaults for punch. For vehicles, use fast hovers and VTOLs. If you are using infantry, make them jump infantry. And I would use light PA if you plan on using PA.

Definately do not forget things like TAG, active probes, and C3 nets.

The Special Missions/Operations part comes from the fact that this unit is going to be doing some things that would start a Succession War if it were a real house unit and doing them (upon occasion) in a manner that is very frowned upon (to put it mildly). If you want to see what I mean, take a gander down the OOB; notice that I have a bomber unit under the ASW's HQ and a "special munitions battery" under the artillery battalion's HQ. A Wobbly One would immediately understand, let's put it that way.

EDIT: A secondary motivation for choosing that unit title is how the acronym comes out. Pronounce it phonetically and then ponder the fact that this is a very heavy unit. If that doesn't make you laugh, nothing will (and it'll be a running joke in the side story).

HEAVILY updated. I don't think I'm going to be specifying equipment any further, so this is going to be the last update barring the desire to flesh out the regiment mech pilot by mech pilot.

I've updated the command flight and transport flight with their attached (i.e. borrowed) aerospace assets. And what assets they are, since theoretically the Nekohono'o on their own could conduct an orbital nuclear bombardment against strategically important targets and then lead the way in for the Fortress dropships. And the Fortress itself is a potential nuclear monster, what with the Long Tom III and however many reloads it has...

Erm, sorry, I've been reading Nuclear Weapons of the Month threads on the CBT forums and I got carried away. Although I won't deny that the possibility exists for the Valkyries to got into a planetary invasion hot like this, if the odds are near impossible and the value of possession is of a Most Important nature.
