Dirty Dozen style unit

Postby Grass4hopper » Sun Mar 10, 2013 4:21 pm

Which SU Military would be most likely to deploy a Dirty Dozen/Play Dirty unit (a bunch of criminals who chose to accept forced enlistment over long prison terms/execution)?

From my knowledge of the fluff, it seems like TEM or UMFL would be the most likely choice. TEM because them might get sent on "high risk" missions, possibly behind enemy lines. UMFL also seems plausible due to it's enlistment methods.

What do you guys think?

Probably the TEM's I think too, since it easy to maintain a public image when your hired guns are off somewhere far away doing your dirty work.

Very true. Also, the UMFL because recruiters would probably be happy to accept questionable enlistments.

I just thought of a possible situation where they would fit in with UMFL better: UMFL sends commanders to a colony to form a new company. The colony already has ill will towards the SU, and now one is willing to sign up. In desperation the UMFL commanders offers pardons to local non-violent criminals: frame thieves, smugglers, etc.

Perhaps a slight stretch, but still plausible.

Soren and I made the UMFL so that we'd invariably have Dirty Dozens, Force Tens, Seven Samurai, Wild Bunches, and A-Teams. The Northern Republic of Mars has a quota to fill, sending a specified number of individuals to be officers in the UMFL every year.

TEMs typically come from the Solar Union itself. They're volunteers (like the TTMs) who are the sharp end of the spear wielded by the democratic forces of the SU.

TTMs are hired and recruited by the TTA, though they're almost always shipped in. It seems likely some number of them are from families that live in the transit gate, though.

I can see a UMFL captain in a desperate situation that calls for desperate means. A desperate situation that requires someone who knows the underworld, someone who can talk their way in the door, someone who knows explosives, and the best chabbing frame mechanic this system's ever seen. You might even go so far as to find yourself a man with a shady past.

Heh heh heh. My Garfish Unit is something of a Dirty Dozen style team. But then, they are kind of payed to be a bunch of jerks.

They were sent out to assist in the Tahzelli-4 conflicts. Though they are fairly well armed for borderline pirates. Speaking of pirates, their frames are well adapted for amphibious combat.
