Aurigan Coalition Military

Aurigan Military Units[edit]

The Coalition relies heavily on Mechanized Infantry to hold the field. A typical mechanized infantry battalion includes armored personnel carriers bearing a company of infantry with anti-tank and man-portable heavy weapons and feature large numbers of Scorpion light tanks and Galleon light combat vehicles backed by LRM Carriers for long range support. Taurian Demolishers or Manticores salvaged from the war anchor the battalion's first company.[1]

The Coalition operates a small number of Union-class DropShips and a somewhat larger number of Leopard-class DropShips to deploy its forces to hot spots in the region. As the Aurigan Reach is starved for interstellar transportation assets, the Coalition cannot afford to maintain JumpShips for purely military purposes, and it has to rely on hiring free traders as needed.[1]

The Coalition has no significant aerospace capabilities, barely enough to fill its DropShips' bays, but not much more. The ground-based defenses built in the period of Capellan and Taurian occupation of the Reach were later decommissioned and abandoned. As of 3022, the Aurigan technological base is not developed enough to return them to operational status.[1]
