The OCRU-1001 Crusaders are the shock infantry of the Order's Pax Dei. Crusader infantry are armed with Storm carbines capable of defeating lightly armored targets. Crusaders, like all infantry, can be transported in the command APC.

DescriptionEdit

The Crusaders are the shock infantry of the Pax Dei, the military division of the Order of the New Dawn. Many soldiers view the Crusaders with extreme respect and it is considered to be very prestigious to be a Crusader in the Pax Dei.

The Crusaders primary armament is the Cobra AAG-50 “Soul Cleanser” Storm Carbine. In order to operate the gun properly a heavy combat suit with an enhanced exoskeleton is needed, such as the Crusader armor. It is powerful enough to seriously damage light vehicles but against heavier targets, the Crusaders need to approach from the rear where the armor is weaker.

The powered exoskeleton worn by the Crusaders allows them to go head-to-head against enemy terradynes even though a frontal assault would be futile. Order Field Commanders regularly inject different combat drugs into the Crusaders in order to improve their aggressiveness factor. As a result many Crusaders are burned out at an early age.

The Crusader combat armor is designed for maximum mobility with optimum protection and is the toughest protection available to infantry short of powered armor. Crusaders are classified as infantry and can be loaded into a Command APC for transport.
