The Alliance needs it’s heroes to protect their world! From the undead rising near our homes, to cultists causing havoc and our old enemies coming ever closer to our borders. Chaos never rests, Azeroth needs it’s heroes from above.
Paratroopers, where the enemy may build the highest walls, we will be the ones to answer the call to arms and fly over them. From the 7th Legion, we belong to it’s 7th Airborne. Veterans of war, young and old, willing to fight for all of the Grand Alliance, are to be enrolled into the 7th Airborne and soar for their homes.
The Greyhawk Paratroopers, IC known as the Greyhawk Platoon or simply the Greyhawks, is a military airborne unit within the 7th Legion’s sub-army of the 7th Airborne. We are those that reinforce the front, bravely go behind enemy lines and take the ground as we land from above. Our goal is to be the reinforcements in battle, when the Grand Alliance calls we will answer and fly through with our strength.
The Greyhawk Platoon is part of the C lashwing Company, which was originally part of an Auxiliary unit from the Stormwind Army. As such when the company have kept their blue and grey colours while being inducted into the 7th Airborne’s 2nd Battalion. In the Clashwing Company, paratrooper is recognized by a single wing on their patch, instead of two wings. This was to emphasise that teamwork is paramount in our military, and no paratrooper shall stand or descend on their own. Currently the C. Company is commanded by Captain Embergear, as the Greyhawk Platoon is led by First-Lieutenant George Graywater.
Military Roles are seperated in four distinct branches that collectively make up the units within the 7th Airborne’s 2nd Battalion, starting from a section and going higher up. Each of them have their roles to act out within operations, and together serve as the victorious pieces for a successful mission. The four branches within the Division are:
- The Vanguard, those confronting the enemy face-to-face. With formidable protection, they are ready to take and deal the most damage to the enemy while holding the line.
- The Dragoons, mobile soldiers capable to attack the enemy from close by and from range. Ready to reinforce the other three branches at a moment’s notice.
- The Pathfinders, quick and tireles soldiers to search and track. Capable to flank the enemy or find our where they are hiding. Without them, the unit goes blindly into battle.
- The Warcasters, using spells and abilities they conduct researches and scrying operations off the field, aid in mending tasks or serve on the field as a destructive force.
These make up the squads within the Platoon, those who will be the Platoon Leader’s main force to use in the operations. Alongside the squads, additional teams offer support to the paratroopers. For example the Transport Team, who’s responsibility is to bring the paratroopers close to their destination for dropping to the field of operation.
As is customary for the Regiment, only those with some form of combat experience may apply for recruitment. Young and old veterans apply, those within and those outside of the 7th Legion, as long as they are loyal to the Alliance. On certain occassions, mercenaries or even penal soldiers will be allowed to join the ranks.
The G Platoon is commanded by First Lieutenant George Graywater, co-commanded by Staff Sergeant Mauro Dawncastle. The First Assault Squad is where all of our current members will be placed. The Assault Squad is a fully hybrid subunit where all four of the branches are filled in by the paratroopers.
Lt. Graywater is the one to form a training program, where each candidate would follow courses and classes on infantry and airborne training. The areas within Dun Morogh would serve as their field of training, where our prospects shall be earning their wings. Parachute and glider jumps are paramount for each paratrooper, if they fail their aerial training they will not be able to become paratroopers for the Greyhawks.
Completing their training will earn the prospect their wing insignia, recognizable as a paratrooper of the Greyhawks. No matter if they’re a Lieutenant or a Private in rank, every paratrooper is regarded as a key member of the Platoon and will be a deciding factor in victory or defeat for every operation.
Join the 7th Airborne, where individuals are brought together to stand as one.
Become Paratroopers, where ordinary soldiers are turned into the extraordinary.
