The Rodok Detachment is a prime example of the Morat conception of honor taken to its ultimate consequences. It is one of the most recently founded units in the Morat Aggression Forces, and with less than fifty years of service it lacks the glorious tradition of the more battle-worn regiments. In the Morat military, this is a source of unmitigated shame. To earn themselves a name and go toe-to-toe with the elite regiments, the detachment cannot afford to show any weakness while it climbs the competitive ranking of military prestige. Knowing this, Rodoks give two hundred percent in each mission. Their commitment is so strong that they consider it a personal insult for any other unit to score higher or prove itself stronger than them. With single-minded determination, they are carrying their detachment out of the dishonorable obscurity of the intermediate ranks. They are clawing their way to the top, fighting in every Sotarak for a chance to prove themselves before High Command in positions of responsibility. And every day they collect more and more victories in these ritual combats with their unique fighting style. With each Sotarak won, they become more visible in the critical moments of the battle, and earn more renown for their regiment.
Rodoks have had to acclimatize to their new heightened mobility gear, but they have made a key tactical edge out of it. It is a challenging paradigm shift regarding combat space, but it opened new possibilities and attack vectors that Rodoks have refined into a bona fide combat style, drilling it until it became second nature. Rodoks are a specialist assault unit, a team designed to exert control over the zone of operations via fire and relocation. Their tactical philosophy is predicated on four tenets: “Move constantly. Attack continually. Hit hard. Avoid attrition.” They know they have a disadvantage in a drawn out conflict, which they can’t win by waiting around for their opponents to screw up. They have to be proactive. They have to be more aggressive and strike harder than the enemy. The have to be more Morat than Morat. With their fondness for powerful weapons and for strafing toward their foes for close-quarters carnage, Rodoks can be more Morat than absolutely anyone.
