Introducing PAX IMPERALIS, a (very) rough and unofficial concept for Arbites Operations and Campaigns. If anyone wants to borrow, add, or suggest modifications, feel free. If anyone who happens to have any influence at FFG is considering something more official along these lines, there's a popular sayng, "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!"
It's quite rough since, outside of a few wikis and DH supplements, all I've been able to get my hands on material-wise were a few decent unofficial and recent codices (according to one, there were over 20 others floating online at one point). I've also tried skimming through the Enforcer Omnibus as well to try and fill what I can. So, here goes.
Pursuit (Bike, Mounted, or Sentinel)- Replaces RECONNAISSANCE.
Execution- Replaces HUNTER-KILLER, since it's a similar concept- strike hard, strike fast, no prisoners taken, no court dates given. They also tend to move secretly, likely similar to Storm Troopers.
Combat- Replacesan Infantry type. Slightly heavier standard armament (boltguns).
Patrol- Replaces an Infantry type. Typical Arbitors, carapace armour and Vox-Legi shotguns.
Suppression/Shock- Replaces an Infantry type. Heavier riot armor and suppression or shock shields. Repressors and Castigators, too?
Storm (?)- Replaces DROP TROOPS. Airborne Arbites, from Eagle Assault Shuttles. Grav chutes and rapelling lines.
Retreival Team (?)- Apprehension, hostage/kidnapping rescue. (But remember the hostages are also guilty of being taken hostage!)
Response- Emergency backup, Likely would replace MECHANIZED. Rhinos, Chimeras, Castigtors?.
Counterinsurgency- Replaces ARMOURED. Many Arbites Precincts will have a Leman Russ, or the Arbites Repressors
Omitted: (or, "I couldn't think of a way to fit them in")
Fire Support - This team swould normally be posted at a checkpoints an strongpoints, or heavy weapons section.
Escort Detail/Personal Staff (Bodyguards/Command Squad) - Command vehicle, possibly Mobile Precinct Fortress or Command variants of other transports
Leman Russ (rare)
Castigator (Arbites Razorback)
Land Speeder (including Storm variant)
Eagle Assault Shuttle (up-armoured Valkyrie?)
Omitted Vehicles: (Unable to verify any data of existence)
Class Adaptations: (currently in name only, mostly)
Patrol- Replaces WEAPON SPECIALIST
Executioner- Replaces HEAVY GUNNER
Medicae- Replaces MEDICAE (but not really)
Opererator/Tech Adept- Same as above
Detective- Replaces PSYKER (Psy-rating optional and Adjutant comrade?)
Chaplain/Deacon- Replaces MINISTORUM PRIEST
Proctor- Replaces SERGEANT
Tech-Priest Cyber-Mastiff Handler- Replaces TECH-PRIEST ENGINSEER
Storm Trooper- Possibly Chastener and option for Grapplehawk?
Commisar- Perhaps a Verispex? Investigator? Dare I even suggest Mortiurge (Radical's Handbook)?
Ratling Sniper- Possibly kept same
Ogryn- Possibly kept same
Omitted: (same reason as for the teams)
Bailiff (possibly as a sort of Veteran class later?)
