While all PDF navy troopers are trained in zero-g combat there is a select
group that specialize in it, the PDF Spacetrooper Corps. These spacetroopers
are typically only found on the largest cruisers in the PDF fleet and are
often called upon to do the tougher boarding operations while the standard
PDF navy troopers are held in reserve.
Standard PDF protocol calls for a squad of troopers in armored space suits
to walk along the hull of a target vessel and plant charges on all airlocks,
blasting them open, and exposing that region of the ship to vacuum, thus
reducing on board resistance. Many PDF commanders tend to overlook this rule,
as they want the ship in mostly working order. When on an enemy vessel, half
of the troopers will be given stun grenades for their micro-grenade launcher,
the other half get a pair of smoke grenades. The smoke grenades are generally
fired into every new corridor and/or room that the boarding team comes
across, reducing visibility for the enemy while infrared goggles that are
built into their suits provide vision for the spacetroopers.
