The Hyrkan Regiments are regiments of the Imperial Guard.
Recruitment & TrainingEdit
The first Founding from Hyrkan raised six infantry regiments for the Imperial Guard. 6,000 troopers being inducted, it is presumed that each regiment was only 1,000 Guardsmen strong. As a possible result of this, they seem to have been deployed together as a form of miniature 'super-regiment' wherever possible. This deployment style may have had something to do with the chief political officer provided for all six regiments at their Founding, Commissar-General Delane Oktar, whose progressive command and discipline style was based around principles of unity, honour, and the value of the individual Guardsman. Oktar's martial philosophy was drilled into the Hyrkan officers and at least one Cadet-Commissar who came under his purview.
The commander of the Hyrkan Regiments approximately 20 years before the beginning of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade was General Caernavar.1-p.14
Due to the command philosophy of the regiments, Hyrkan battle-style was based around 'selecting the right tools for the job', with a notable de-emphasis on straightforward massed infantry assaults. Before military actions, the abilities of each trooper were considered when assigning battlefield roles.1-p.15
Appearance & UniformEdit
The average Hyrkan appears to be of pale skin with fair, almost colourless hair. Their uniform was dark grey, with beige webbing and forage caps. Winter battledress including camouflaged gloves and greatcoats. The Hyrkan accent is clipped and guttural.1-p.14-15
Weapons & EquipmentEdit
Though classified as infantry, the Hyrkan make use of attached field-artillery pieces.1-p.14
