FaerieBanshee Posted November 5, 2014 Share Posted November 5, 2014 (edited) Whilst not quite at the level of military buff, I enjoy looking into military structure and hardware and I find the Grineer to be a fairly awesome military to analyse. What spawned was a fairly interesting discussion with a friend (who IS a military buff) about how the Grineer military is structured and a few associated points (as well as a few that aren't). I'm listing some of the ideas in bullet points here because I'm interested to see what you guys think. :D -The Grineer military is split into a Navy and an Army. -The Army encompasses the Arid and Frontier troop types. -Lotus' has a quote of 'Marines inbound'. Marines are traditionally troops assigned to the Navy. -Captain Vor previously held the rank of Admiral. Whilst Captain is a rank present in armies and navies, Admiral is traditionally a Navy rank. -General Sargas Ruk holds the rank of General. General is traditionally an Army Rank. -Sargas Ruk is the boss of Saturn. Saturn is the Grineer training ground for their elite troops. Frontier Troopers spawn here. Both elite Army and elite Navy troops may receive training on Saturn. -Ceres, which has an atmosphere in-game, does not have it's own type of special troops (e.g. Arid or Frontier) which could imply that it is under Navy jurisdiction. This would make sense as Ceres churns out the Navy's Galleons and Battleships. -There are 2 kinds of Grineer shuttle. A green type with yellow lights and a grey type with red lights. The grey type is seen exclusively on Phobos and Earth. The grey type may be the Army's shuttle whilst the green type the Navy's shuttle. -During Corpus invasions of Phobos (haven't seen any on Earth), Grineer 'regular' troops can be seen supporting the Arid troops. They are probably Navy marines drafted in to support the Army elements. -Eximus units are squad leaders. This can be supported by the fact that their previous names were just 'Leader' and Grineer Commanders do not have an Eximus version as far as I can tell. None of this is solid. It's all just guessing. But I was curious to see what any Warframe military buffs thought. :) Edited November 5, 2014 by FaerieBanshee Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
