AI Infiltration Squad
Combat Level: Tactical
Where: Antares Rulebook
Armed with Reflex armour and Mag Repeaters, Infiltration Squads employ stealth tactics to take enemies by surprise. The squads are most often recruited from Algoryn females, the Algoryn considering combat a necessity for all Algoryn members of the Prosperate. Their key difference is in their training: the infiltrators are used to moving ahead of the rest of the army up close to enemy lines. In game terms, they can lay a minefield prior to the start of the game as well as move further forward immediately prior to the start of play.
Like other AI squads, the infiltrators can pack quite a punch. Their squad leader is armed with an X-sling that can be equipped with the penetrating Overload ammo or the suppressive SlingNet. To lay the minefields they need to be equipped with option plasma grenades or the more dangerous Solar Charges – your choice! Further, when using an optional camo drone, the squad can hide in plain sight until they can choose their own moment to shoot. The squad can also take optional Homer and Synchroniser drones, making this squad one of the most flexible in the Algoryn army!
Their stats are similar to other AI troopers:
|Infiltrator Squad Leader with mag pistol, X-sling, reflex armour*||5||5||5||6(7)||7||8||Leader, Infiltrator|
|AI Infiltrator Trooper with with mag repeater, reflex armour||5||5||5||6(7)||7||8||Infiltrator|
* The leader can take overload or slingnet ammunition and a mag repeater
The boxed set Algoryn A.I. Infiltration Squad contains one A.I. Leader with Reflex Armour, a Mag Pistol, and a Micro X-Sling, who is accompanied by 4 A.I. Troopers with Reflex Armour and Mag Repeaters, and 2 Spotter Probes. There is an extension pack which contains a leader with mag repeater and a camo drone, and a combined deal which offers all the options together.
