StormElite Mountain Troop

Modern-day ground combat includes a wide span of unusual and unsuitable
terrains for fighting. One of the hardest terrains for an army to cope
with is mountains and rock terrains, and that's why the StormElite created
the Mountainous-Terrain Operation Trooper, or Mountain Troop.

Trained specifically in climbing and jumping techniques, the average
Mountain Troop is usually only sent into a mountainous terrain combat
zone with light gear. The reason for this is the fact that the soldier
needs to carry rope, a harness and numerous tools that are used for
digging and/or climbing, such as a vibro-pick.

StormElite mountain troops usually work in small, 12-man squads that a
spread out thinly across vast mountain areas. They are trained in close
quarters situations as well as long-range combat. Mountain Troopers are
experts at camouflage, and are extraordinary when on the defensive.

The standard-issued StormElite mountain troop uniform includes a long-
sleeved shirt, available in both tropical/summer and snow/winter variants.
Long pants are worn, and are available also with the patterns above. The
SE Shock Troop smock is optional, however is usually only worn in cold
winter conditions.

A harness with a small combat pack replaces the combat suspenders of SE
soldiers, and the pack is usually used to hold the 750 meter roll of
synterope with piton that was issued for the mountain troops.

Usually mountain troops are issued the BlasTech 34 Mountain Troop rifle,
but some division on remote, mountainous-terrain planets still operate
using the 98k blaster rifle.
