An unloaded bolt-action is provided to 50% of all soldiers.

The other 50% get the ammunition for when the man with the gun drops during the charge.


Hollywood memery of the USSR aside.

There is no single standard for the Imperial Army. There are several models of approximate standardization issued to the various billions upon billions of Imperial Army soldiers about the Galaxy. Generally due to shields and risk of feed back they're ballistic or energy weapons which fire a bolt rather than a continuous laser (basically pulse rather than laser).

The Imperial Guard is a bit more standardized (though they're much smaller than the Imperial Army) between a few ballistic, pulse, and gravity based weaponry.

Imperial Marines generally carry similar equipment to the Army except practically everything is tailored for void operations, short term expeditionary forces, orbital drop assaults, or planetoids with little to no atmosphere.

Would any of our Admiral characters be interested in having Theo serve as a Vice-Admiral in their fleet? I think that'd provide some nice early interractions, not to mention how fitting it would be, as I'd prefer him serving some actual character rather than having to invent a new one.

Hey Rodez, it's canon that Vandercalt fought in the Kimambi campaign, so should it be canon that Vandercalt and Joachim have met and know each other?

None of that is canon unless I say so. And I have several issues with it.

The amount of rebel fleets was rather amusing.

The crumbling, galaxy-wide empire can’t have rebellions over the last ~50 years?

The issue isn’t rebellions. It’s the narrative.

I dont think rebellions as large as your bios are describing. Not rebellions encompassing entire colonized systems but maybe some major unrest on some planets

It’s more the characterization people are making that the Imperial Military is just exclusively populated by utter retards.

Yeah, I would imagine something like with what's happening in Hyperborea is so far currently the exception, rather than the rule to that in terms of civil unrest and open revolt in the Imperium atm.

yeah I would imagine the Imperium devotes TONS of money to stopping unrest and rebellions, beings the dominant galactic power with no real rivals, it can afford to do this.

well, with no major rivals in the immediate area, there's really nothing that keeps the Imperium's military on their toes since they've been designated into a garrison role.

Rebellion should still be a normal thing they deal with, it's open conventional war where they should have some difficulty due to stagnation, I would imagine. As for insurgency, im sure they have PLENTY of experience.
