The United Nations Colonial Tactical Assault Corps ( Abbr.  UNCTAC; CTAC) ( Fr.  Corps Colonial de l'Assault Tactique des Nations unies) is a terrestrial army corps of the military of the United Nations Protectorate. It is tasked with immediate responses to acts of terrorism and rebellion on human worlds. Its members are highly skilled trained-to-kill soldiers. The corps saw a huge involvement and funding in the Uprising, being credited with finally putting an end to it. Since it has become the most prominent police force of the UN government.

Overview

CTAC is used as a special forces unit to suppress criminal activities in the protectorate. They operate by needle casting from world to world using sleeves requested and maintained by CTAC.

The CTAC soldiers are often referred to as praetorians.

In combat, CTAC soldiers use full-body armors, powerful firearms and close-quarters martial arts.

To train their operatives, the CTAC burns out the human psyche's evolved instincts toward limitations of violence, and replaces them with the conscious will to do harm.

CTAC operatives use re-acclimation drugs to better use their combat sleeves.

Armaments

CTAC troopers wear full-face helmets and full-body armors in combat.

Most of the troopers use AK-style automatic rifles with a reflex sight on top as their primary standard-issue arm. The rifles are hinted to use conventional ammunition with a secondary electro-magnetic rail-acceleration system to increase the projectile velocity. The battery for the rail system is attached on top of the weapon, and the coolant canister for it goes into the angled foregrip.

Sometimes un-modified UTAS UTS-15 pump-action shotguns can be seen in their hands.

As sidearm they carry Beretta Px4 Storm semi-automatic pistols with a laser module attached to them.

Explosive breaching charge is seen being used by the troopers to breach open a wall.

History

Trivia

The standard-issue rifle is called "Shocktrooper AK" in concept arts, and is built based on 5.45mm AKS-74U carbine.
