Background

Unit Description

The Lambda Engineers Battalion is responsible for repairing what others have destroyed. The Lambda engineers form mobile support units deployed both on the front lines and in the rear. For its part, the Lambda Battalion of Field Doctors is composed of military surgeons in charge of Bureau Aegis field hospitals. Their extensive training as doctors and surgeons enables them to work under pressure and with the limited medical resources available at the front.

"Semper Excelsius” (“Always Excelling”). Motto of the Specialized Support Unit.

The Lambda Unit is O-12’s mixed support regiment. The Lambdas are the campaign technical specialists of Bureau Aegis. They have the best general technical proficiency as well as the high-tech equipment that distinguish them from their equivalents in other armies. The Lambda Battalion of Sapper Engineers specifically trains its members to become experts in repairs and maintenance of military technology, in addition to campaign engineering, infrastructure, and demolition. They are primarily in charge of the maintenance of all the equipment and gear of the Bureau’s military units. But they are also tasked with building the structures that may be necessary to carry out the mission, and demolishing those that hinder its fulfillment. In humanitarian missions, the Lambda Engineers Battalion is responsible for repairing what others have destroyed. The Lambda engineers form mobile support units deployed both on the front lines and in the rear. State-of-the-art technology allows for refining tactical parameters, but since it’s a developing technology, it’s characterized by its extreme fragility. If you want to bring a highly technical army to the heat of battle, you will need someone to repair and maintain all that expensive and sophisticated equipment. This is the main function of the Lambda Engineers Battalion. For O-12 and for Bureau Aegis, which only has a limited number of units, Lambdas are key on the battlefield.

For its part, the Lambda Battalion of Field Doctors is composed of military surgeons in charge of Bureau Aegis field hospitals. Their extensive training as doctors and surgeons enables them to work under pressure and with the limited medical resources available at the front, relying on their knowledge to save lives and improvising during emergencies. This specialist medical battalion performs numerous humanitarian missions apart from their military tasks. Lambda Doctors can be found in disaster areas, organizing quarantine crews, primary care posts, and field operating rooms. Being part of these units usually requires a true calling, since it also means being a direct witness to the worst tragedies caused by war. Apart from this, the Lambdas also operate as field agents and so receive the same combat training as every Kappa. The personal gear they carry consists of a backpack with medical equipment and a satchel full of cutting-edge surgical nano-tools, in addition to a lighter version of the Kappas’ standard tactical gear, since they know that, when they set out to save lives, they are likely to have to wield something more forceful than their MediKits.

Bureau Aegis’s technical and medical specialists, Lambdas quickly gain familiarity with the wide array of cutting-edge technology that the Human Sphere has to offer. Often working alongside military liaisons, observers, and advisers, Lambda techs need to be able to repair the servos on a PanOceanian TAG one minute, then ensure a Haqqislamite field surgery station is up and running the next, with little to no warning about what critical issue is about to become their problem.

Equally as skilled, the Lambda Battalion of Field Doctors operates Bureau Aegis’s field hospitals and can be found in the midst of practically every humanitarian mission occurring in the Human Sphere. From disaster relief to field surgery, Lambdas receive similar combat training to their peers in Kappa Unit. In order to do their job, they’re likely to need something with more kick than a MediKit or a wrench before the day is through.[1]
