501st Union Foreign Legion: 'Olympus Guard' Spartan Empire
Union foreign legions are very rare and hard to come by. Due to the Unions principles of duty above all else all men and women in the Union hold their allegiance to their nation above all others. This of course leads to problems when foreign legions need to operate for other nations. However there are some who know that serving another whole heartedly actually will serve the Union to great effect, and so these people form the foreign legions, fighting with another nations forces in a completely foreign war.
The 501st legion have their roots in the Nightside wars, around 200 years ago, the legion was gifted to the Spartan Empire as a gesture of communion and goodwill. Sparta with great honour seeing as how hard it is for a nation to give up some of its own fighting potential to another graciously accepted and incorporated them into its elite fighting forces. The 501st have since seen some of the most bloodiest actions in Spartan history, fighting in the psychic wars the legion has a fair measure of psychic threat. The legion is currently operating in the Ancerious galaxy under the Spartan empires command, however they have been itching to get into the action and support their fellow Union friends, they have instead stood their ground and waits for Sparta to make its ultimate decision which currently is absolute neutrality.
501st infantry: armed with Union weapons and armour these men and women have serious experience under their belts and will happily wade into the most vicious fight without flinching.
501st command squad: one of the many command squads of the 501st, lead by Alex J rhodes the command squad wears Spartan iconography and even rallies around the Spartan lighting flag.
501st Heavy power armour: the Union gifted Sparta with a 10 man strong squad of Heavy power armour, very rare and incredibly powerful this functions as an elite shock troop in the legion.
501st Hawk assault teams: armed with laser blades and jump packs these men and women put their lives to the test in the swirling melee of close combat. The Spartans have much respect for the Hawks.
Whirlwind APC: the legion maintains its own APCs which are repaired using Union techniques. These APCs provide much needed speed to the infantry.
Skyhammer jetbike: a few squads of jetbike infantry are in the legion and they provide a scouting role and intelligence.
Farstrike Medium Artillery: with all 3 types of Farstrike the legion can engage enemies at range and rely on artillery support from its own ranks plus that of the Spartans.
Titan Heavy tank: a few contingents of Titans are assigned to the Legion, these often fight alongside Spartan heavy tanks to utterly crush the enemy in armoured assaults.
Seraphim MBT: the main battle tank of the legion the Union Seraphim still executes its normal blitzkrieg tactics alongside Spartan armour.
Seraphim Demo: designed to breach defences this tank helps Spartan infantry and legion troops in confined spaces where obstacles need to be cleared with its breaching charges.
Seraphim Viper AA: the dreaded Viper AA is available to the Legion and provides incredible AA coverage for the troops of the legion and other Spartan elements.
Seraphim Shield: the support shield generator variant provides protection to Legion and Spartan troops as they advance.
Achilles Land Fortress: the Legion maintains a super heavy company with 4 Achilles, these work in concert with the Spartan land dreadnoughts to destroy any opposition they encounter, including enemy colossi and other super heavy tanks.
Ace Gunship: the Legion has a few Ace gunships for heavy ground support operations where it can tear enemy forces apart.
Predator Light Assault Mech: the Legion also has a mech squad in reserve, these may only be light mechs but they can still pack a serious punch, they work alongside Spartan Exo suit teams to destroy the enemy.
