Background

The Armed Imposition Detachment is one of the Shasvastii units best known by human troops. This unit works as a strike force, taking part when the Shasvastii methodology, based on deception and pinpoint attacks, is not enough. They have been specially trained in assault and support techniques and exceptional physical condition is required of them. They must be versatile, fully confident of their capabilities, and demonstrating an extraordinary expertise in the use of weapons. Operating in teams of five soldiers or as individuals, the Detachment is considered one of the best of the Shasvastii Expeditionary Forces, a first class combat troop. Be it on open front lines, or fighting door to door, the Gwailos are qualified to expel enemies from the battlefield by force. Advancing behind the dark cloud of nanobots that serve them as cover, they act as if enemy fire didn’t exist.

It is said that they can take or conquer any kind of vehicle, spaceship, vessel, building, or facility, without any external support. This was proved during the Second Offensive of Paradiso, when the Armed Imposition Detachment, greatly outnumbered, made their way through a series of well-defended enemy positions in open terrain. Advancing along a narrow isthmus, they took the factory complex of Huà Miàn Systems and obtained another overwhelming victory for the Combined Army. It was a victory that cemented the Yu Jing High Command’s belief that there was no way of retaking Xiongxiang city. This was also the battle in which they won their code-name among human troops - ‘Gwailos’, Cantonese for ‘Foreign Demon’.

The Gwailo – or Armed Imposition Detachment to use their correct name – are among the finest troops within the Shasvastii Expeditionary Force. In peak physical fitness, they show extraordinary expertise in assault and support techniques. Trained to operate individually, the Armed Imposition Detachment is often used where the subtle Shasvastii tactics based on deception and pinpoint attacks is not enough. Gwailo are generally not used for Combined Army operations and instead are held in reserve for specific Shasvastii only operations. One of the best-known Shasvastii troops among the Human Sphere forces, they advance behind nanobot clouds. They pride themselves on being able to conquer any target without external support. During the Second Offensive of Paradiso, a greatly-outnumbered Armed Imposition Detachment took the Yu Jing factory of Huà Miàn Systems and obtained victory for the Combined Army. It was a victory cementing Yu Jing High Command’s belief there was no way of retaking Xiongxiang city. During this battle in which they earned their name among human troops: ‘Gwailos’, the Cantonese for ‘Foreign Demon’.
