12 Days of Christmas – Day 9
For today’s Christmas treat we have an exciting first look at the Concord Drop Troops.
Often it is necessary to land troops directly through the planetary atmosphere, and this is where the Concord C3’s Drop Squads come into their own. They are equipped with grav-chutes that enable them to dive safely through the atmosphere, and protected by suspensor field cases which shields them from the heat generated as they plunge downwards to the target. Drop troops are the most heavily armoured and armed of the Concord’s Strike forces, as befits units that must often capture and hold objectives without the support of conventional heavy equipment.
