The Empire has fallen and a New Republic is born out of the conflict. But in the ashes of civil war, yet another life stirs...
Vanguard Troopers are combat specialists who train extensively in the use of heavy weapons and ordinance. Specifically, they are soldiers who have a finesse for taking down enemy vehicles and defensive structures. A favored weapon of the Vanguard corp is the PLX2-M missile system.
While Vanguard Troopers are vulnerable on their own, they make excellent anti-vehicle units when defended by friendly armor or if used in a hit-and-run style attack.
In addition to the human-species seen here, the Vanguard squads in RotM will have Wookie and Sullustan soldiers. Screenshots of those soon.
