The Eighty-Sixth Strike Package (第86独立機動打撃群 (ストライク・パッケージ), Dai-Hachijūroku Dokuritsu Kidou Dagekigun (Sutoraiku Pakkēji)?, lit. 86th Independent Mobile Strike Group (Strike Package)) is an independent mobile strike force created by the Federal Republic of Giad.

As a foreign unit, it is primarily comprised of Eighty-Six Processors from the Republic of San Magnolia. The Strike Package is made up of two thousand Processors divided into four divisions. Each division is cycled in and out of operational activity, rest, and training. Two divisions are active at any given moment.[2]

Chronology[]

The Strike Package was created following the elimination of the Morpho and the relief of San Magnolia by the Nordlicht Squadron. Due to the unique circumstances, personnel, and equipment of the Nordlicht Squadron, as well as the influx of new Eighty-Six joining the Federacy's war effort, they were not integrated into the regular forces. Thus, the Strike Package was established as a unit of foreign soldiers focusing on mobile deployment, equipped with the highly successful XM2 Reginleif.

The Strike Package was created with the intention of being a collaborative project between the continent's four powers: the Federal Republic of Giad, the Republic of San Magnolia, the United Kingdom of Roa Gracia, and the Alliance of Wald.[3]

The Strike Package was initially composed of a single division comprised of 168 Processors from both the Republic's Eighty-Sixth Sector and the Federacy's Vargus Nordlicht Squadron. Their number would decrease to approximately 100 Processors following the Charité Operation. In order to bolster their forces, three additional armored divisions were recruited from Eighty-Six veteran volunteers. Another boost in manpower would come from the aid of the United Kingdom and the Alliance.

Role[]

The Strike Package is often sent to foreign battlefields and have accrued great achievements. Their role is to not only fight crucial battles, but also to increase public morale in the process. Despite the reluctance of its members, the Strike Package is seen as a company of tragic heroes by the Federacy, their stories of triumph lift the spirits of the populace.[4]
