When the Valorian system was refounded by the Imperium it was made up of a total of 6 planets Valoria Primus, Secundus and Tertius, Shan-Xi, Ratatarius and Arkonia. The armed forces of this system were at a complete opposite to standard Imperial doctrine however as this has seemed to endure the test of time the Imperium has granted any Valorian units to keep their estranged makeup.
Standard Valorian Doctrine dictated the following
There are only 10 regiments each with its own specialisation (There are now however 11 'regiments' as the marines are no longer considered part of this structure)
1st regiment - Special forces
2nd Regiment - Infantry
3rd Regiment - Urban Warfare
4th Regiment - Light Dragoons (Armoured Fists)
5th Regiment - Armoured
6th Regiment - Recon
7th Regiment - Airbourne / Air cavalry
8th Regiment - Penal Legion
9th Regiment - Artillery
10th Regiment - Logistics
The Arkonian 101st were assigned to the 3rd Valorian Battlegroup as the honour guard to their CO High Commander Percilius Lycanus They have endured many years of combat from Medusa and Cadia to protecting inquisitors within the crusade of saint carmine. The standard doctrine of combat within the 101st company 7th Regiment is that they always strike at night and every member of the company must wear their helmet at all times. This is a great psychological war tactic as no bodies are ever left and any survivors driven mad by the encounter (there is generally only one to carry back the messege) report attacks by packs of undying demons unleashed by the light of the Emperor.
The 101st company are great users of urban terrain and can effectively appear from no-where to attack foes from flanks they believed secure. The standard weapon of the 101st is the MK VI Valorian Autogun and also they keep their Grav chutes worn during combat, although this has led to an increased number of repairs on such items the Valorian comabt technique uses them to great effect to increase the dexterity of the user by giving bursts of thrust hen jumping and dodging attacks.
