Platoon CSS:NSL-12 by WOWandWAS Platoon CSS:NSL-12 by WOWandWAS
A 6 pilot mixed coalition member unit; not depicted many many support personnel. Formed in the expansion era as a tactical cross training program the mixed platoons would see active duty far quicker than any member nation thought. C:N-12 focused on ground assault in wilderness situations. The NSL particularly looked to these platoons get there mech fleet up to Alareen planet bound mobility standards.

Depicted (top right to bottom left)
Specialist Laryu lutaval
A decorated EA war veteran and C:N-12's sharp shooter, Laryu is the most experienced member of the combat personnel and second in command. She prefers mobility and wears power Armor sparingly preferring a minimal profile to keep moving at a distance from targets.

Psion Ricia Siyta,
The younger sister of Laryu by another fatheress, Ricia approaches combat quite differently than her sibling. A Psion of some power Ricia manifested magnetic abilities early, and has refined them in to a devastating close combat style all her own. Though quite strong her abilities effective range is only a few feet from her skin, to take advantage of this a special body suite was developed for her. Insulating layers house ferric liquids that she can manipulate through the suite with trivial effort. She uses both the resulting kinetic thrusts and electrical generation to great effect. While most Psions float about the battlefield, Ricia levitates more as a maglev than a mental suspension; sliding on planets natural magnetic field she can accelerate with astonishing speed. These unique styles have earned her the name quicksilver in the Platoon.

Ensign Liz Hampton,
The youngest Mech pilot in the group was promoted in from the platoon’s maintenance staff as her skill in piloting the rigs soon rivaled her skill at repairing them.

LtC Merak Davenport,
The command officer Merak pilots a custom grappler style mech and excels at blade and pistol combat. Hailing from New America and brazen he is a straightforward commander and fighter.

Lt Greg Waush,
Another New American, Greg is the missile man. His rig is laden with a wide assortment of guided and dumb projectiles and can precisely level a building or carpet a neighborhood down to its foundations.

Lt Brian Blough.
A proud son of Ravana Brian brings tactical and electromagnetic warfare to the table. His rig is mostly laden with countermeasures sensors, and various launching probes and drones.

seems like an interesting mix. NSL mechs and Alaerin troopers. best of all if they didnt want to use a mixed crew ship the NSL ship could just warp tow the Alaerin ship to the correct destination.
