When Task Force Renegade was first conceived, one of the prominent aspects was to include a rapid response army unit. This was to assist the Krayli's Valour’s primary strike forces (the elite squadrons) in assaulting lightly guarded enemy worlds and strongholds. This was in the form of the Razorcat Battalion.

Once the New Republic crumbled, and the Task Force became the sole known military might in the New Rebellion, the army battalion became one of the front line units. Deployed from the Valour, the Razorcats are designed to break down enemy resistance and take fortified garrisons. Usually area cannot be held for too long, with the battalion either handing over to local resistance troops, or leaving nothing but a mess for Imperial reinforcements.

The commanding officer of the Razorcats is Major Xel Finn, and the battalion is broken down into four companies, with the addition of the Headquarters Unit.

Razorcat Battalion totals 778 men, with 617 droids in support.

Headquarters Unit

Within the HQ detail, Major Finn is supported by her second-in-command, Captain Kier Laval, who also serves as the unit's intelligence officer. There are four other aides of equivalent rank, the logistics, medical and technical officers and the headquarters officer, whose role is to oversee the interaction between the various elements of the HQ. The headquarters officer also serves as the commander of the battalion's 38-man security platoon, and is also considered the senior of the unit's 47 non-combatant support personnel.

Although it consists of combat troops, the security platoon is not treated as a front-line unit; it is designed to maintain discipline within the battalion. Now that Task Force is independent, the security platoon works closely with the Valour’s own security force, providing joint security for the whole ship.

The 46 non-commissioned support personnel represents the equivalent of two company support details, namely sixteen logistics troopers, 22 technical personnel, and eight medics.

Additional to the 90 organic personnel, Razorcat Battalion HQ contains 145 droids, of which a hundred or more are MSE-6 mouse droids; with the rest being a mixture of security droids, protocol droids and various other designations.

Company Command Unit

Each of the companies have their own command unit. This comprises of five officers, 23 non-commissioned personnel, and 118 droids. The officers are the commanding captain, their second-in-command, the company lieutenant, and logistical, technical and medical specialists, also graded as lieutenants. The last three groups are directly responsible for the three component elements of the support detail:

  • logistics: eight soldiers, and 88 droids
  • technical: eleven soldiers and 22 droids
  • medical: four soldiers and 8 droids

First Platoon

  • 9 men crewing 3 heavy tanks.

There is also a final heavy command tank.

Because of the tactics used by Rancor Company, they can only operate for three days, before re-supplying becomes necessary. They cannot hold ground for longer than a week without reinforcements as their primary focus is on attack, not defence.

Each heavy tank requires a crew of three, and each light tank a crew of two. In each platoon, one of the heavy tanks also fits a Lieutenant. Therefore 78 troops are required for the company, with an additional three manning the command tank, bringing the total to 81, the lowest number of troops in any of Razorcats four companies.

They’re used in reconnaissance and scouting capacity, as well as surgical strikes on military targets.
