Fighting Vehicles I :Synod Military Forces in the Sol Sector

Watermarked PDF

The armies of the Universal Synod of Worlds are vast beyond comprehension. They control millions of worlds. They are far from a unified people but a confederation of thousands of smaller empires, republics, federations and states. They are ruled by de-centralized form of republic whereby sectors send representatives to the Universal Althing to decide matters of relevance to every being in the Universe.
The military, at least on a local level, need unity of command. For that reason the Synod delegates a representative from that sector to coordinate military efforts within that sector. Military units are often drawn from local planets and given more advanced training if necessary. Since most of the species within the Synod of Worlds are pacifistic the burden of fighting often falls on the Consensus of Artificial Systems or just the Consensus.
The Consensus are advanced artificial lifeforms that grew out of Synod artificial intelligences. Their worlds are massive factories and research laboratories. They have taken up the mantle of military protectors and provided the backbone for almost all of the Synod Military formations.
Artificial Intelligences specifically designed for military thought lead armies of non-sentient drones and vehicles. This is done to protect the people of the Synod from the horrors of warfare and contagion of the Fallen races. Races within the Synod, known as the Chosen, often provide specialist units or leaders to supplement the powerful but inetectually limited drone forces.

The following pdf will provide unit descriptions and Dirtsid II / Stargrunt II game statistics for a typical Synod Mechanized Infantry Military Formation as well as for two additional supporting VTOLs, the Harpy Attack VTOL and Vampire Transport VTOL..

It also provides the Full Thrust stats for the Synod standard Combat Transport and Assault Lander.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
