Among the most well-known unit of Heavy Jump Infantry are the Heavy Response Platoons, Draconis Elite Strike Teams combining their legendary stealth with heavy firepower. As the elite of the conventional infantry of the DCMS, DEST have nothing to fear. Trained in many arts of war, these units were often the bane for the enemies of the Dragons. Their trademark infiltration suits provide some of the best protection and information-gathering of any non-Battle Armored infantry. [1]


The Heavy Response Platoon's combination of Blazer Laser Rifles and Semi-Portable Particle Cannons give them enough firepower to more than match any other conventional force.[1]
