Description[edit]

Minesweeper Infantry are specialized combat engineers trained to locate and disable mines.[1] The Capellan Confederation is well-known for their mine-handling techniques and technology, which they passed along to the Taurian Concordat during the Trinity Alliance. The Minesweeper companies of the 35th Cluster Support Force, Red Chasseurs, put this new knowledge to good use, and have earned commendations for saving other TDF units from blundering into deadly minefields. [2]

Armament[edit]

Taurian Minesweepers carry only Auto-Rifles in case of enemy engagements. They are far more valuable for their knowledge, and equipment, needed to locate and remove enemy mines.
