Lore

The jetpack has been a popular icon of pulp science fiction stories ever since the early years of aviation and during the first half of the 21st century, a number of companies have managed to design and produce the first truly reliable and practical models for commercial purposes, advertising their jetpacks as a modern alternative to individual transport vehicles or high-tech sports equipment. One of the first military units to adopt their own version of the jetpack was the Italian Folgore Parachute Brigade. Having seen action in peacekeeping operations in Lebanon, Somalia, the Balkan, Iraq and Afghanistan, these elite paratroopers quickly became one of the most rapidly deployable unit of the ECA thanks in no small part to their purpose-built Jupiter jetpacks which turned them into an entirely new kind of airborne infantry. Armed with a pair of automatic grenade launchers mounted directly on their flying suits, the Jumpjet Troopers quickly attained a fierce reputation among the Russian forces who learned to fear their lightning fast airborne raids on several occasions. They are also exceptionally nimble and fly under the radar of heavy air defenses whilst lighter anti-air guns can still engage them by eyeballing it. However, due to the relatively intricate training process, Jumpjet Troopers can only be deployed as part of the Venom Protocol, where they serve as a fine complement to the ECA's other special infantry weapons and tactics.

Overview

The Jumpjet Trooper is more like a smaller version of the Valkyrie prototype, with the less of firepower and weapons, discounting the cost of this unit. While being small version, it can have its own asset to the battlefield.

Armed with dual 30mm grenade launchers, it can capable of destroying light vehicles or even armored vehicles within a short time, especially in numbers of Jumpjet Troopers. It is also potentially effective against infantry and structures.

Like the Venom prototypes, the Jumpjet Troopers can use the ability to fly to the air, providing air mobility, and it has much faster movement than on-foot. While in air, it cannot be targeted by ground units and even Tier 2 anti-air vehicles. However, it is still can be targeted by Tier 0 anti-air units.
