The Tesoro Obviation


A Cognitive Officer on Glassis: in the background of the photopic, a rare Cyclo munitions carriage.

The Cyclo gun operated by generating and projecting ambient impulses to disrupt field stasis, and was never fully reliable in operational terms. The weapon saw limited deployment during the period of the Tesoro Obviation.

Both man and machine were assigned to the 2265th Provisional, a surface cannonry unit.

Survival


I have, basically, what I need to survive. And more. 

I am plastic after all.

Detonations


Attendant of the Kalkovac Pike Infantry of Court in his royally appointed traditional uniform and armed with an archaic impact gun. This is a rare photo indeed, as the Pike Infantry of Court was largely struck from the Regimental record following the retreat at Byj Moon.

The Obviation


Radio Stenographer with No.4 Section, Headquarters Company. On Tesoro, during the assault on the Range Sprites.

His base stand and folding array are disposed for the march. The later model leather implement pouch on his belt clearly dates this photo as from the post-reinforcement period of The Obviation.

The Pulchra


A Wireless Scribe hastens past a partially overgrown automated smokestack: near March Grobbe, Manderase Planet, Subsector R21-E
Circa 965.

As operations wore on here noxious plant life increasingly became a hindrance to the daily tasks of the 302nd Wasteland Reconnaissance. Off-world invasive species piggy-backed with several regiments the Task Force and quickly spread on this verdant world, choking Manderase's four continents with extirpative growth.

This soldier was most likely part of Headquarters Company, 617 Crypsis Rifles.
