Planetside on Adestre

Non-Commissioned Geometrist with an Independent Survey Platoon, planetside on Adestre. Attached to his field gear is a standard issue Type 21 iron tripod, likely for the mounting of an astrolabe, and a bedroll for field survival. Note the non-standard shoulder plates.

Survey and cadastral mapping are an important function in the normal duties of a Reconnaissance Regiment in the 41st century. The mapping of celestial exploration is a tedious if often dangerous undertaking, but this process ultimately allows for proper administration and centralized tithing.
