The Imperio Militar Del Escorpión is the military arm of Escorpión Imperio the remnant of Clan Goliath Scorpion.

Military Organization[edit]

Based on the concept of mixed Trinaries, Goliath Scorpion's military is extremely regimented. Each of the six Trinary types it uses contains a mix of BattleMech, Elemental and Aerospace forces, designed around a tactical specialty.[1]

Trinary Type Composition Information
Assault Trinary 2 BattleMech Stars
1 Elemental Star
Used to spearhead offensive operations in urban environments, the two 'Mech Stars are composed of heavy and assault machines while the Battle Armor scouts ahead to identify and destroy ambushes.
Battle Trinary 1 BattleMech Star
1 Elemental Star
1 Aerospace Star
Same unit type as adopted by Clan Wolf in 3012, this multi-role unit combines light- to heavy-weight machines for responsive, independent battlefield operation.
Guard Trinary 2 Elemental Stars
1 BattleMech Star
This defensive formation is design to work in any environment, with the supporting 'Mech Star composed of varying weight classes.
Specialist Trinary 2 Elementals Stars
1 Aerospace Star
These air-mobile infantry units are built around rapid battlefield response and hotzone paradrops. The aerospace Star is almost exclusively composed of the Kirghiz-C variant of fighters for transport.
Striker Trinary 2 BattleMech Stars
1 Aerospace Star
A harassment force, these formations are made of light- to heavy-weight 'Mechs and medium-weight fighters. Unlike aerospace Stars in other formations, those in Strikers are used for air superiority and reconnaissance rather than ground-support.
Command Trinary 2 BattleMech Stars
1 Composite Star (two Elemental Points, one Aerospace Point and two 'Mechs)
This formation acts as a stable command element while also capable of delivering the final blow to an engaged enemy.

Each of these six Trinary types gives way to six different Cluster formations, also designed around specific strategic needs. In addition to their stated forces, each Cluster is led by a Command Trinary.[1]

Clustertype Composition Information
Hussar Cluster 3 Striker Trinaries
1 Specialist Trinary
These units perform planetary reconnaissance and deep-strike assignments.
Uhlan Cluster 2 Striker Trinaries
2 Battle Trinaries
Uhlans are nimble ground force used as skirmishers.
Dragoon Cluster 1 Striker Trinaries
2 Battle Trinary
1 Guard Trinary
A flexible formation for offensive or defensive operations.
Cuirassier Cluster 2 Battle Trinaries
2 Assault Trinaries
This formation is used as a mobile ground-assault force.
Grenadier Cluster 3 Guard Trinaries
1 Assault Trinary
Grenadiers form the backbone of Scorpion defensive operations and bear the brunt of enemy offenses.
Cateran Cluster 1 Striker Trinary
1 Battle Trinary
2 Specialist Trinaries
An irregular formation adopted by the elite Heartvenom Cluster allowing them to perform fast, deadly strikes.

Uniforms and Rank Insignia[edit]

Combat Dress Uniform

When Scorpion warriors are out of their machines, they wear a black jumpsuit with a cap bearing the Clan insignia.[6]

Field Uniform

The Scorpion Field Uniform consist of an armored black tunic with a dark gray shirt and pants. Dark gray gloves and black knee-high boots finish the uniform. Sometimes a black cape is added with a gray head scarf that covers the warrior's head with exception to the eyes. For head protection, the warrior wears a fur-rimmed conical helmet similar to the Mongol's of ancient Terra. [7]

Dress Uniform

This uniform bears a resemblance to the ancient Star League's security uniform. The dress uniform is a dark gray lightweight shirt, a black vest-coat made of ballistic cloth, gold pants and knee high black boots. A wide gold stripe run diagonally across the right breast of the coat, adorning the Clan logo. Galaxy and Cluster insignias are worn on the left breast of the coat, while rank insignia is worn on the coat's left shoulder and cuffs of the shirt. The helmet of the field uniform is carried over to the dress uniform. [8]

Ceremonial Uniform

The Goliath Scorpion Ceremonial uniform is made of glossy black leather, highlighted by dark gray piping that gives the uniform a segmented appearance. It gives the look of a scorpion's carapace. Finishing the look of the uniform is a black helmet with golden horse hair plume and golden clan daggerstar for the eyes. Only blood named warriors may wear the detachable black cape trimmed in gold. [9]

Gamma Galaxy Uniforms

The Gamma Galaxy Uniforms are the same as the field and dress uniforms. Echoing back to the days of the Seekers, Gamma Galaxy replaces black with blood red and dark grey with gold to highlight their status as the Temple of the Nine Muses. [10]
