Pathfinders are regularly employed as support troops, either pinpointing targets with marker lights, or outflanking the enemy to take out tanks from the rear with their rail rifles. Usually they operate in split units of 5 men.
Shas’O Kho’lyn likes to make extensive use of drones as shock troops, rather than throwing away the lives of his men. He likes to personally command a dozen drones, aided by a drone controller and counterfire defence. It is a tactic that has proved extremely effective against large groups of lightly armed troops. His crisis suit is an Iridium model, with augmented armour, in order to allow him to lead from the front and screen the drones from light arms fire.
A recent support addition was a bomber. Whilst the drones are pretty effective, the bomber itself has not usually proved its worth on the battlefield.
