Description[edit | edit source]

The Skye Rangers Brigade is a House Steiner affiliated Unit with several Regiments and three attached Mercenary Units. The Skye Brigade is organized in a para-military manner, with rank structure and advancement of the members according to skill and activity. Important to us is having a friendly, team-oriented and objective focused Brigade, that Mechwarriors of all skill levels and ages feel comfortable with.

Unit History*[edit | edit source]

Originally the army of the Federation of Skye, where the Skye Rangers were once synonymous with courage and resolution, many in the LCAF and LAAF see them as divisive for their ties and support of Skye independence movements like Free Skye. The Skye Rangers have maintained close ties to its parent state, recruiting almost exclusively from the Federation. As such, the unit frequently sides with the Duke of Porrima, not the Archon. Therefore, the brigades loyalties are questionable.

Regiments & Structure[edit | edit source]

Structure[edit | edit source]

As a para-military organization, the Inner Sphere military structure is the basis for the Skye Brigade. One Regiment consists of up to three Battalions which again consist of up to three Companies. Each Company consists of three Lances with 4 Mechwarriors in each. The Regiments are lead by a Regiment Commander (RCOM) with his XO. Battalion Comanders (BCOMs), Company Commanders (CCOMs) and Lance Commanders (LCOMs) are promoted to certain ranks after proving their experience in battle. Chain of Command (CoC) is kept within each Regiment and the Skye Brigade and plays an important role within the Skye Rangers.
