Background

One of the major issues facing an international body like O-12 is the impact of authorization and approval from different parties. By the time that Bureau Aegis is authorized to intervene in a situation, things have usually gone from bad to worse, if not beyond. Sometimes the parties in question are simply uninterested in de-escalation.

That’s when the Gammas show up.

O-12’s sledgehammer, these heavy assault units are a blunt — yet somehow still precise — instrument of unrelenting violence. Fast and overwhelming, Gammas attack the enemy physically and psychologically in equal measure, thundering across the battlefield while somehow keeping collateral damage to a whisper. In the chaos of war, they represent the arrival of unsympathetic order, here to make things right, whether anyone likes it or not.[1]

But as O-12's law enforcement branch knows all too well, sometimes a shield isn't enough. Sometimes, to truly protect means to go on the offensive. And when the enemies of stability reject that shield, then O-12 brings out its hammer — the Gamma Heavy Assault Unit.

No one would mistake these ironclad warriors for a peacekeeping unit, and to their credit, the Gamma make no effort to present themselves as such. Their modus operandi is delivering overwhelming force at overwhelming speed. Whether in psywar or a firefight, Gammas pride themselves on being a force for order in the midst of chaos, a voice that carries above the cacophony of battle, delivering a strong, clear message: “We tried to warn you. So now we do this the hard way.”

Gamma unit’s role in quick and total domination during strike operations. The Gamma units mean business, and they mean to end it quickly and efficiently. Designed for flexibility and power, Gamma armour was conceived to be sturdy with heavy armoured plates offering significant protection. In addition, O-12 engineers developed a completely new automedical system. As well as offering the usual life support systems, the automedical systems of the Gamma Armour include a number of injectors to deliver carefully measured doses of adrenaline and other chemicals allowing a soldier to continue fighting at peak efficiency even if they have suffered significant trauma. Well-protected compartments in the backpack store hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and the auto-feed is capable of ramping up into suppression mode, increasing the rate of fire of the heavy machine gun or feuerbach the soldier is wielding. The end result is a servo-powered armoured suit that offers substantial physical protection and can keep a soldier in fighting condition through injuries that would cripple even the fittest. As strike units, this armour offers the Gammas a significant advantage over the enemy, allowing them to deliver shock and overwhelming firepower while withstanding a substantial onslaught.

Equipment

Gamma Armour was purpose designed and built to support the Gamma Unit’s role in quick and total domination during strike operations. The Gamma Units mean business, and they mean to end it quickly and efficiently. Using the mobility suit, designed and built by PanOceania’s Omnia Research Corp and worn by select Father Knights, as a basis, the Gamma Suit was made sturdier, with heavier armoured plates that offer increased protection. In addition to these alterations, O-12 engineers completely overhauled the auto-medical system, adding a number of injectors to deliver carefully measured doses of adrenaline and other chemicals designed to allow a soldier to continue fighting at peak efficiency, even if they have suffered significant trauma. Well-protected compartments in the backpack store hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and the auto-feed is capable of ramping up into suppression mode, increasing the rate of fire of the heavy machine gun or Feuerbach the soldier is wielding. The end result is a servo-powered armoured suit that offers substantial physical protection and can keep a soldier in fighting condition through injuries that would cripple even the fittest. As strike units, this armour offers the Gammas a significant advantage over the enemy, allowing them to deliver shock and overwhelming firepower and withstand a substantial onslaught while doing so.

Trivia

"The war cry of the Gamma Unit is “Gamma Unit smash!”, which is an homage to the famous quote by the Hulk, the Green Goliath from the Marvel Universe, whose powers come from an accidental overdose of gamma radiation."[2]
