The Black Talons
The CEF stomped on an ant hill when they attacked Terra Nova. Now us ants are stopping back.
-Lieutenant Falls Warton, former WFPA Tank Commander in retraining as Black Talon Strider Commander.
Formed after the bombing of Peace River and the resolution of the Interpolar War, the Black Talons were organized as a force drawn from all peoples of Terra Nova with the mission to take the fight to colonies conquered by the CEF forces. Their ultimate goal is even to strike at Earth itself to guarantee Terra Nova's independence. In their earliest missions, the Black Talons fielded heavily customized versions of older Terranovan Heavy Gear designs enhanced with improved duelist-grade components and cutting-edge stealth systems. The early Black Talon missions were often paired with adjunct forces that act in an almost diplomatic capacity to other colony worlds, but the spear-point of the Black Talons are teams of expert Gear pilots drawn from the best of the military and duelists.
With the CEF invasion, the Black Talon have been forced into a defensive role to repel the CEF onslaught. They are the best of the best, and as such are the best equipped forces to go into heavy fighting with the invasion forces.
The Black Talons have a unique arsenal of Dark Series deisgns modified from older Heavy Gears, but these are being replaced by the advanced Claw series gears. The Claw series are new designs based off protoypes and technology from a range of Terranovan sources. Both the Dark and Claw series vehicles are equipped with stealth technology and field the best weapons available.
The Black Talons also have brilliant tactical leadership, allowingt hem to time their assaults to take advantage of the cover of darkness.
While they often act independently, Black Talons can also be fielded as allies to a range of other factions, including the forces of Caprice and Utopia.
