Seven Saints of Talis
The Boomer Battalion is a military order devoted entirely to the deployment of field artillery weapons, ranging from man-portable mortars to long-range Basilisk artillery tanks, Hydra flak tanks, Medusa Seige Tanks and Griffon Heavy Mortar Carriers.
Their guns generally remain safely behind the void shields and earthworks of Hell’s Reach and Hell’s Breach, preferring to remain out of direct combat and simply rain long-range, explosive death on the forces of the Arch-Enemy. The Boomer Battalion also maintains a lance of three Griffons at Eagle’s Rest as part of a joint operation with the Red Chrome Legion, though there is some animosity between the two organizations.
Members of the Boomer Battalion generally wear standard flak vests and helmets with protective ear-cups and set with range-finding visors that also include flash-compensation and rebreather units. They are typically armed with standard lasguns and side-arms. Though they do not, as a rule, engage enemy units directly, they will defend their guns to the death and, in the event that a weapon is about to be overrun or captured, will detonate a krak or meltabomb to destroy the weapon, rather than allow it to fall into enemy hands.
