Star Army Infantry

Recognizable by their cornflower blue colored panels, these tough and numerous soldiers of the Star Army of Yamatai typically wear power armors and fight both in space and on planets.

They will typically be trained for planetary or space infantry roles during their time training. They often fight alongside personnel of other occupations. More often than not, the Infantry Nekovalkyrja Type 33 is cloned to fill the need for infantry in the Star Army. Very rarely are cornflower blue panels out of their armor during missions unless location or lack of equipment disallows them from using it. Infantry soldiers train constantly, both to combat boredom (between battles) and to hone the skills they need for victorious battles.

The Yamataigo (邪馬台語) word for infantry is hohei (歩兵).

Training for Infantry

After basic, infantry receive three months of training and in that time, may learn survival training for different environments, demolition training, advanced weapon training, how to build structures, as well as fighting vehicle, support vehicle, and aerospace vehicle training. They are almost always sent on an away team during a mission. Cornflower blue paneled Star Army personnel are well-trained and adept at these skill sets by the time their training is done.
