The XV105 Riptide - Fluff by AgentArrow

The XV105 Tsunami is a special variant of the more common XV104 Riptide Battlesuit. They are deployed exclusively by the exploratory forces of Shas'O Ko'vash M'yen as a ground-level aid to survey crews in orbit. The most notable features are the up-armored front intakes and the enhanced XV9-inspired chest armor, complete with visual readouts for the pilot, which are also based on the XV9 platform. Additionally, to aid with the mobility required for an exploratory suit, a secondary center jetpack is mounted on the back of the armor. It incorporates a larger intake to aid with cooling and is engraved with the text "Caution: Nova Reactor" on one side and "ATT" on the other. This is a display of homage from the Fio who designed the enhancements as a recognition of the orbital in which he learned his trade. Other enhancements include an extended heavy burst cannon and increased shin armor to help aid the pilot in any sticky situations encountered while surveying planets.

Though it is not specifically intended for high levels of combat, the XV105 Tsunami has proven to be the most durable XV10 platform yet and other cadres are quickly requesting that this variant be incorporated into their own forces. Aside from increased survivability, field testing on the consequences to performance based on these upgrades has proven inconclusive.

DESIGNATION: The Nights Wrath
LOCATION: The Vaulantis sector
FOUNDING: 998 m.41
Home world : Vaulantis
Honeworld Description: Vaulantis was found during the days of the 2nd so here expansion a ice world which initial scans showed as having no life forms on the world. The Tau forces deployed onto the world to find that some how the humans who lived on this world had evaded the life scans of the world. The Tau also discovered a war going on between the humans the orks and a other worldly enemy, however this presented them with a dilemma, do they help the humans and risk taking heavy loses or leave the humans to be wiped out. It was decided in the end that a group of ambassadors from the water caste would be dispatched. If the humans accepted their diplomacy then the Tau would aid them, if not they along with the Orks and other strange beasts would be destroyed. The humans quickly accepted the Taus offer for they had long been forgotten by the imperium and their emporer and so began the reclaiming of the world. For 10 years this war went on until the invading forces were forced off the world.

The humans agreed to allow the Tau to have the world as long as they would allow the humans who lived there to stay. While initially the commander was against this the Ethereal saw saw the wisdow in this. For the Tau have short lives in comparison to that of the humans so they would be useful. Peace reigned in this sector and within months it would become a new Sept world within the empire.

CURRENT STATUS:
Kel'var's force was one of those smaller expeditions dispatched from Mu'gulath Bay, and is currently in transit, travelling through deep space to investigate territories previously unexplored by the T'au empire. A recently formed cadre in the wake of the Fi'rios conquest, Kel'var's disparate forces were nevertheless deemed suitably experienced after the initial fighting on Mu'gulath Bay to operate effectively as a unit and were assigned their new task by the ethereal Aun'el Jed'ai who accompanies the expedition.

Being formed from the survivors of the Nont'mon'rra and an influx of reinforcements after the conquest of Fi'rios sept proper, Kel'var's forces are a mix of many different septs and cadres as those forces who had taken severe casualties in the campaign were dissolved, and their surviving troops grouped together in entirely new cadres.

Kel'var's expeditionary force is one such force, and while the survivors of the Nont'mon'rra were already bonded together by the experience, the rest of the cadre was still unfamiliar with each other, and as such the Mu'gulath Bay offensive was not only a test of their skills but also of their ability to work together as a coherent unit. The battle itself served as a form of cadre-wide ta'lissera, bringing them together with the bonds of battle.

CURRENT LOCATION:
Travelling through deep space in cryostasis.

MISSION STATUS:
In transit.
