Palvar Defense Force (PDF) Special Missions Army Troopers

The Palvar Defense Force's special missions troopers are among the best of
the best. They are, more or less, the special forces of the Palvar Defense
Force. They are hand chosen from the standardized Army and sent into
advanced training in almost every aspect of combat. When they complete their
months of additional training the special missions troopers are given tatoos
with their squad's insignia and put into the cycle of combat missions.

Typical missions profiles include infiltration, assassination, pathfinding,
escorting, scouting, demolition and just about anything else that Army
Command has to throw at them. They are expected to be able to succeed at
any mission and are usually sent out in teams of eight to twenty depending
upon the mission.

The typical PDF special missions army trooper uniform consists of a dark
grey jumpsuit with the letters 'PDF' on either shoulder (the letters 'PDF'
are rarely seen on the uniforms of any other PDF military uniform, usually
the 'KS' insignia is worn). Worn over the jumpsuit (during field operations)
is usually a piece of armor such as a blast vest (always black in color)
with several small pockets that tend to be used to hold extra blaster clips.
Additional protection in the field is provided by light leg armor that
covers the thigh, black armored knee pads, and sturdy black knee high boots.
Following PDF regulations, all troopers must wear black gloves, some army
troopers opt to wear the standard issue ones that the navy troopers wear
while others wear black fingerless gloves, this is overlooked in the army,
but not in the navy. Topping it all off, an army special missions trooper
would wear black elbow pads and a specially designed facemask which serves
three purposes; to hide their identity, to filter out any harmful gases and
to provide facial protection.
