Used effectively by the Stalwart Support infantry unit alongside Heavy Foot LRM Infantry, TAG Spotter Infantry were deployed to frustrate the Word of Blake during their conquest of the world of New Canton. A common tactic was for the Heavy Foot LRM Infantry to take cover in heavy woodland or similar rough terrain, while the TAG Spotter Infantry deployed forward to call in LRM strikes against enemy units. For two years after the Blakists had proclaimed that New Canton had been successfully incorporated into the Word of Blake Protectorate Colonel Sanders' infantry continued to evade the Blakist forces while inflicting disproportionate levels of damage until they were finally destroyed in 3073.[1]


Each TAG Spotter Infantry platoon carries a mixture of twenty Laser Rifles - Mark XX Laser Rifles being the preferred choice in the Stalwart Support - and 8 Infantry TAG Systems.[1]
