UN Space Troops

Administrative Organisation

The UNST is administratively split into various service arms and within those arms, different structures apply.

e.g. Within the Infantry Arm are several regiments which supply infantry battalions, while within the Cavalry Arm there are regiments that supply Armoured and Reconnaissance elements.

Field Organisation

In the field, the standard organisation is the brigade. These brigades are commanded by a Brigadier and are made up of units from various of the administrative branches of the service. (See UNST Standard T.O. & E for examples)

Where multiple brigades are required to operate in a region, a Divisional Headquarters Brigade will coordinate their work and where a planet needs multiple brigades to be present a Corps Headquarters Brigade will provide the central logistics and signals needed for effective command. This Corps Headquarters may be further supplemented by an Army or Army Group Headquarters Brigades as necessary.

UNST Auxiliaries

The UNST sees all troops loyal to UN member states as UN Auxilliaries.

UN Auxilliaries are the only non-UN units that may be deployed off-Earth. All other UN member troops are deployed under the UN Peacekeeping banner and as such are liable to deployment on earth only.

UN Auxillaries are generally only trained and equipped for habitable planet deployment.

Examples include:-

XVIII Corps from the USA

16th Air Mobile Brigade from the UK

11th Air Mobile Brigade, an Armoured Brigade and a number of Foreign Legion Battalions from France & the EU

83rd Airborne Brigade (and others) from Russia

The PLA Volunteers Brigades from China

The internationally staffed UN Air Mobile Brigade, Security Brigade and Mountain Infantry Brigade

UNST Local Volunteers

The UNST support of the Sieur of S'tiri has seen the provision of local C'thik troops trained, equipped and led by UN officers. These local troops are currently limited to security police units and the C'thik Infantry Regiment.

Mercenary Companies

The establishment of the Local Volunteers gave the allied C'thik commanders on Ran ideas, and they have managed to employ a small number of Human troops as Mercenaries or Military Contractors.

This contraversial development has increased the firepower of the local's pike-and-shot brigades with the addition of RPGs and machineguns but has been seen as potentially exploitative politically. i.e. the control is not through the UN.
