Brightsword's Enclave
Ten-Cadre Table of Organization and Equipment (TO&E) Chart


Overview

X / Command and Control Element / Shas'uash'o
Consisting of Brightsword and Honor Guard, as well as Theater Coordination and Internal Security teams, the C&C Element of O'Ol'nan's Ten-Cadre oversees and mediates all objectives, requests, and intelligence gathered by each individual Cadre.

1 / Forward Reconnaissance Cadre / Da'shovah
FRC Da'shovah is one of the only Cadres in the Contingent (save the Auxiliary Reserve Despatch) designed not to operate as a single entity. Units from this Cadre will often be deployed many tens (sometimes hundreds) of tor'kans apart and away from friendly forces, and are responsible for battlefield reconnaissance and surveillance, intelligence gathering, target acquisition, and rear-area sabotage and ambush. Units in the FRC will also intermittently rendezvous with other Cadres in the field and become temporarily attached to them during the course of a particular battle, before being redeployed even further into enemy territory.

2 / Mechanized Assault Cadre / Sehen'ka
MAC Sehen'ka is the forward spear of O'Ol'nan's forces. Leading the way with the single highest proportion of XV8s than any other Cadre, the MAC embodies the very nature of hyper-maneuver warfare taught to O'Ol'nan by his former mentor, O'Shovah. The Mont'ka taken to the very extreme, the Mechanized Assault Cadre is often as much of a psychological weapon as a physical one, and will often strike at an enemy entity over and over, too quickly for them to be able to muster an effective resistance. Just as quickly as they arrived, the Sehen'ka will be gone and on their way to another battle in very short time, leaving nothing but neutralized or heavily demoralized enemies in their wake.

3 / Mobilized Line Cadre 1 / Or'es'ka
The Primary Line Cadre, Or'es'ka, offers O'Ol'nan a small, well-rounded forward-mobile fighting force that can be deployed almost anywhere with great success and much staying power. MLC Or'es'ka excels in Urban Warfare operations, and will usually equip its warriors with weaponry and equipment tailored for the close-range, three-dimensional fighting that is inherent to combat in a village, town, or city.

4 / Mobilized Line Cadre 2 / Kar'tyr
The Secondary Line Cadre, Kar'tyr, is usually found augmenting Or'es'ka with long-range reserve firepower. Training and fielding some of the best marksmen in the entire Empire, this Line Cadre is best fielded in a supporting role or covering flat ground with little in terms of cover. Teams are usually outfitted with long-range precision firepower such as Pulse and Rail Rifles.

5 / Mobilized Line Cadre 3 / J'ufa'ro
While each MLC has their own preferences and 'specialties', that does not always mean that a specific weakness will exist. The Tertiary Line Cadre, for example, excels in anti-armor warfare, fielding XV teams outfitted with heavy weaponry and Pathfinders trained specifically to set traps and ambushes on enemy vehicles, but is still a highly effective fighting force in Urban terrain against infantry. J'ufa'ro will often be either held in reserve or deployed on standby status to high-value objectives where holding them is vital to the campaign effort.

6 / Armored Interdiction Squadron 1 / Kai'vah'cha
AIS Kai'vah'cha is the Primary Vehicle Squadron in O'Ol'nan's Ten-Cadre. Fielding gunships perpetually equipped to take on a variety of enemies, Kai'vah'cha is often the first Armored Cadre to respond to an unknown threat due to its excellent adaptability. Kai'vah'cha is also augmented with Sky Ray missile defense gunships, which are often nowhere near each other - placed in overlapping spheres of influence for optimal anti-air and artillery coverage of O'Ol'nan's forces.

7 / Armored Interdiction 'Area Denial' Squadron 2 / Korst'la
AIS Korst'la, unlike AIS Kai'vah'cha, is a dedicated and aggressive "Area Denial" anti-armor and anti-aircraft squadron. Korst'la's Hammerheads are primarily equipped with railguns and plasma cannons, and their Sky Rays are permanently followed by a small Fio detachment of cargo transports and resupply drones. Korst'la is often used to support MAC Sehen'ka in larger attacks on heavier fortifications and has been known to travel well into enemy territory to neutralize enemy vehicles or even entire airbases which FRC Da'shovah has found and marked for destruction.

8 / Augmented Rapid Reaction Cadre 1 / Va'sha'is
Held in reserve until solid intelligence is received of an ongoing or imminent battle where their presence is required, ARRC Vah'sha'is is a rounded force of mobile battlesuits, a solid supply of infantry, rapid-response skimmers, and dedicated long-range precision artillery units. Vah'sha'is' adaptability to most situations but relative inability to rapidly redeploy all of its forces means that they are often used to defend or guard high-value locations against enemy forces.

9 / Augmented Rapid Reaction Cadre 2 / Or'mesme T'shi
Used in a similar manner to ARRC-1, ARRC Or'mesme T'shi preaches a form of the Kauyon that is the concepts of combined arms taken to the very extreme. Never willing to split up their forces unless absolutely necessary, their XV88s will often serve as pseudo-static anchors for the rest of the Cadre to maneuver around rather than long-range support like Vah'sha'is' methods of deployment. This proves highly effective for ambushing or retaliating against enemy forces, and Or'mesme T'shi will regularly be deployed right in the center of mass of O'Ol'nan's forces so that their more static nature does not detriment the overall effectiveness of the Contingent.

10 / Auxiliary Reserve Contingent / Ar'vesa
O'Ol'nan, having spent much time in the Dal'yth system during his early career, has come to respect and admire the courage and abilities of the Tau's many vassal alien races. Fielding one of the largest single Auxiliary Reserve Despatches in the Empire's history, the Ar'vesa makes up over half of O'Ol'nan's effective fighting forces on any given planet, and each individual species is utilized in a manner that suits their specific strengths and weaknesses in a manner that can only be described as one of the best examples of unity and cohesion between alien life forms ever. Made up primarily of kroot, gue'vesa, and mal'kor'vesa, but including a variety of other species in smaller numbers, O'Ol'nan's Ar'vesa are skilled, capable, and a force to be reckoned with against almost any threat.

--EVENT QUERY: THE DEFENSE OF ES'TAU / 997.M41--
--PROCESSING...--
--PROCESSING...--





The Defense of Es'tau - [997.M41]


After Nimbosa and his two tau'cyr attachment with the Fourth T'au Fleet, Shas'O Ol'nan was filled with resentment of Shas'ar'tol and his Ethereal leadership when he heard of the Imperium's success in recapturing the colony. He was determined to finish his invasion into the Koloba sector at all costs, and had his eye on the Imperial world, Sarcassa, where he would establish a forward base of operations and regain the initiative that was lost due in part to the ongoing investigation into his actions on Nimbosa.

Unfortunately, the venerable Commander never made it that far. While preparing his forces to mobilize on his forward outpost world, Es'tau, gue'la insurgents embedded within his sizable auxiliary forces emerged from hiding and launched assaults from all over the capital city. With the bulk of Brightsword's fleet awaiting his arrival at a forward rally point, the waystation Penetrating Light outside the system, he was left relatively defenseless against the many regiments of Imperial Guard who landed on Es'tau from disguised troop transports in orbit. Brightsword was killed in action by an elite strike team who penetrated the primary battledome on the outskirts of the city. Much of Brightsword's immediate command staff were also killed, ambushed within the city as they performed the final pre-deployment inspection of their troops.

With the all ranking Shas'el and Shas'O dead, Brightsword's head bodyguard, Shas'vre Mont'va [Doombringer], activated a long-range distress beacon, rallied the surviving Tau within the primary battledome three tor'kans outside the city walls, and defended it against the regiments of Imperial Guard who were launching their attack from the city. After five rotaa of holding out in the battledome, Brightsword's fleet returned to Es'tau. Having heard no word from their commander at the designated departure time, they waited for three decs before returning to investigate. Kor'O Vash'ya Sav'caor, prepared for the worst thanks to Mont'va's beacon, destroyed the transports in orbit and the Tau cadres Brightsword had originally requested for the invasion of Sar'kassa dropped their forces into the city to destroy the gue'la planetside.

Over the next few decs, a vicious urban battle ensued with heavy casualties on all fronts. XV8 and Armor from fifty hunter cadres engaged six Imperial infantry regiments, and the Tau suffered heavy casualties as a result of being outnumbered almost two to one. Vre'Mont'va's actions in activating the distress beacon at the apex of the battle dome were instrumental in ensuring the returning Tau would not be caught unawares, and as a result was recalled to T'au to be promoted to Shas'el for his actions.

Having suffered heavy casualties, Brightsword's Ten-Cadre was disbanded. At the request of Commander Doombringer, the remnants of the Cadres were reactivated under his command and redesignated the 1st Shas'Es'tau'Tio've Y'Aun'Es'tau, the "Ghosts of Es'tau".

Fi'Rios Expansion Cadre -

Formed from various septs during and after the Fi'rios campaign. Cadre was hand picked from the best of the best during the long campaign. Now used as an expeditionary force on the outer rim of tau space continuing the fight for the third sphere. Has been accompanied by Shadowsun on several occasions. Particularly adept at marine and orc destruction. Know for leaving no survivors.

Commanded by Supreme Commander Dark Raptor : Shas'o Pau' Va
Demands most up to date and recent technology in return for continued success of his cadre. Cadre is accompanied by a detachment from the air caste as a permanent deploy.
