Although the Immortal warlord Caleb has only a few Immortal followers due to his untrustworthiness and constant scheming, he has attracted a large number of VoL troops. Lured by the promise of glory and loot, they act as his shock troops and escorts in combat.
Their leader, Mad Lord Bjorn, wields a heavy assault rifle and an OT
beam saber. Also, he prefers to be called 'differently sane' these days.
Close combat squad. The squad is led by a flame trooper, and its heaviest hitters are the two shock troopers, both of whom are armed with OT
Nova Swords. With their glowing orange weapons, matte black armor, and terrifying helmets, shock troopers are among the most terrifying foes in the Galaxy. Rounding out the squad are two Acolytes with shotguns and spears.
The ranged squad is led by a commander with an assault rifle and SMG; its members carry two heavy assault rifles, one rocket launcher, and one blast cannon.
The 'Salamander' tank destroyer is an immensely powerful weapons platform. Its low profile makes it a difficult target and allows it to fire its main gun freely while its hull remains behind cover.
Sponson-mounted heavy miniguns make it dangerous for infantry to get close. These larger miniguns can match the range of most anti-tank rocket launchers, providing superb defense.
The main gun makes extensive use of OT
technology, giving it enough firepower to blast through tank armor or immolate entire bunkers. However, this is the
universe, where that much power isn't always enough... so this weapon is able to overload its power generators to deliver an even more powerful blast against fortress walls or STDs. The increased power comes at a price, however...
In order to vent excess heat generated when the gun fires at full power, the armored reactor housing must open up, exposing the ORANGE TRANSPARENT
core. A direct hit to the core while it is exposed will destroy the tank and probably anything near it as well.
