For corporations in the thirty-first century, the safety of their sprawling factories is often the responsibility of their own security forces, resulting in private armies larger than a small Periphery nation's entire military.[1] For Johnston Industries, the Rapid Response Force serves as their first line of defense, handling problems too small to warrant the use of heavy units. These lightweight, highly mobile soldiers are able to respond quickly to any emergency on their heavily-armored hover bikes. [1]


The primary armament of these Hover Assault Infantry are the ubiquitous Auto-Rifle, while their hover bikes allow them to carry LRM Launchers for use against better protected antagonists.
