Kyboro Grenadiers

Overview

The Kyboro Grenadiers are elite regiments recruited from the planet Kyboro. They are chosen from the best the Kyboro Planetary Defence Forces has to offer and are utilised as heavy infantry. The Grenadiers are part of the Shenandoah Division and are one of the regiments that form the The Shenandoah Brigade.

 

History

Still working on this section

 

Home world

The planet Kyboro is an industrial ice world and is the fourth planet in the Shenandoah system

 

Organisation

Grenadier regiments are formed into four companies, which are comprised of a command section and four platoons, two infantry and two recon. 

 

The infantry platoons have approximately 95 men in them, broken up into infantry and fire support squads. The infantry squads are then further defined as either line or support, with the only difference being in how they are equipped. Line squads are equipped for mobility, whereas support squads are equipped for static deployment .

 

The recon platoons are comprised of three Sentinel squadrons and a command section. The exact make up of the squadrons in each platoon varies, but they all have at least one Scout squadron.

 

Equipment

The grenadiers favour longer range weapons, with sniper rifles and grenade launchers being prevalent. However the regiment’s veteran squads are almost entirely equipped with flamers for closer range fighting. Due to the fact that the regiments are chosen from the best the planet has to offer they are issued with the best equipment and weapons.

 

The regiment wears Vostroyan pattern uniforms. It is unknown as to how this happened, but there is a legend that claims a regiment of Vostroyans helped to defend the planet and were given settlement rights as a reward and the uniform was adopted by the planet’s PDF to honour them.
