The running fight through Pelcan City on Camarthan Prime during the Khanate break out from the Belkan expanse was a superb example of the heroism of Planetary Defence Forces when put under extreme pressure by an alien foe. Audio and visual records of the event tell us that few of the defenders had any hope of victory. After all the professional soldiers and indeed Retained Knights present during the activation had already given their lives trying to contain the Shia Khan. As a mass of many thousands of Maligs entered the suburbs of the city they were followed by Legionaries of the Styx and the Medusa Legions. Though the aliens were still far from at full strength they already outnumbered the defenders. Using their patrol cars and carriers the defence forces were able to meet each advance and check it at least for a while. Towed portable weapons gave additional support to the hail of Moth and Bodkin fire that met the verminous Maligs head on. As the outer suburbs of the city were lost to the sheer weight of the attackers Colabretas were vital in pulling back from lost positions before being over run. In the trade district of the city proper the rubbacrete barricades held amid the towering buildings for nearly ten hours until the arrival of the Nox and Warlords forced their fall. The progress of the Khanate was remorseless and in strict hierarchical order from the lowest to the mighiest. Eventually the whole city was taken and while it burned the exodus of the civilian population continued unabated. Nearly a million people streaming away from Pelcan City whose lives were owed in great part to the men and women who now lay dead in lost streets and parks.

IAF054 Hazelwurm MkII Patrol Car – Planetary Militia
The defence forces of the worlds in the Prydian Precinct do a lot of their work not only in rural areas but also in built up cities and as a result they need a small vehicle that can respond quickly to incidents.
