Resistance Special Operations Units
The Resistance Special Operations Units (RSOUs) are specialized units within the Resistance Military Forces, that are attached to Resistance High Command. Specifically selected for high skill, morale, bravery, and dedication to the cause, Resistance Special Operations soldiers are considered the best of the best. Very few regular troopers are capable of joining the ranks of Special Operations Units.
Although Resistance High Command would never openly admit it, there is a deep rivalry between many of the Special Operations Units.
