A compilation of the named units that Klaus uses to maintain The Baron's Peace. Of course there are lots of other soldiers, airships, units, etc., that wander through from time to time. Note that individual Bug Squads generally aren't identified in the story.
|Unit name||1st mention||1st appearance||Unit badge||Notes|
|1st Subterranean Mecha Mole Brigade||Has at least two kinds of tunneling vehicle - the "Deep Six" model collapses its tunnel behind it for perimeter security.
The brigade uses the Wulfenbach badge on a downward-pointing arrow which some take to be a stylized drilling bit.
|107th Heavy||Unknown||Not specified||Heavy what? Not known — fought at Battle of Sturmhalten. Possibly "Heavy Cavalry", i.e., the Hooms.|
|3rd Airborne||Not specified||Support when Klaus and Gil visit Beetleburg|
|5th Airborne||Not specified||Support when Klaus goes to Sturmhalten|
|7th Groundnaut Mechanical||Support accompanying Klaus and Gil on their visit to Beetleburg; also Wulfenbach clanks. Note the squared-off edges of the badge wings to suggest mechanical rather than organic.. "Mechanical" may imply this is a unit of|
|43rd Air||never||unknown||Tarvek suggested that this unit (with the Slow Movers) be used to contain the subverted 207th Chemical.|
|9th Aetheric Vapor Squad||Apparently uses default Wulfenbach badge with addition of a stylized "N" for "Ninth" for the specific squad.||Ostensibly a firefighting unit, but their "gas condensers" can also be used as cryogenic weapons. Has appeared only when first described (so far)|
|Black Squad||Noteworthy for their apparent ability to appear and disappear at will. (Sergeant Scorp appeared with them to identify Agatha Heterodyne, but is actually part of the Vespiary Squad.)|
|207th Chemical||never||unknown||Tarvek discovered this unit had been subverted.|
|Dreen||unknown||Unit that would have been assigned to guard Punch and Judy had Von Pinn not torn them (P&J) apart.|
|Fifth Wheel Guns||never||unknown||Apparently had divided loyalty (to the Moglar Alliance).|
|Heliolux Air Fleet||Apparently uses either default Wulfenbach badge or the tower on a circular background evocative of one of their communications mirrors.||Ostensibly a Heliographic emergency communication system, but their mirror and lens arrays can also be used as as Heliostat weapons as per the stories of Archimedes' mirrors. Has appeared only when first described (so far)|
|Hoomhoffers||Apparently uses default Wulfenbach badge on both the uniform hat (a ushanka, busby or bearskin cap?) and the Hoomhoffers themselves.||Whether these insectoids are constructs or clanks is unknown, but Ognian seemed to believe them . Support when Klaus goes to Sturmhalten; apparently no unit number(s).|
|Jägermonsters||Uses two badges: A monstrous face with horns, and a Wulfenbach tower with batwings for those specifically in Imperial service.||Thewears only the monster badge; the Wulfenbach Jäger badge appears on escorting the Baron in Beetleburg. Some Wulfenbach clanks seen early on similar horned badges - possibly due to being attached to the Jägermonsters (see also: Vespiary Squad clanks). The monster badge is also worn as a tattoo by Old Man Death.|
|Mecha-Schnauzers||never||unknown||Apparently had divided loyalty (to the Moglar Alliance)|
|Medical Corps||Unit referred to only as 'a medical ship'; badge appears on gondola and gasbag stern terminus. Uniforms seem similar to those of the orderlies at the Great Hospital.|
|Prisoner Transport||Although apparently administered by civilians, Prisoner Transport works with the military at least in Mechanicsburg, as a Wulfenbach regular .|
|Rumbletoys||Apparently uses default Wulfenbach badge with addition of a stylized "T" possibly for "Terra"?||Large clanks ostensibly used as earth movers, but their "subsonic wave throwers" are capable of liquefying bedrock. Has appeared only when first described (so far)|
|Sky-Sharks||never||unknown||Apparently had divided loyalty (to the Moglar Alliance)|
|Slow Movers||never||unknown||Tarvek suggested that this unit (with the 43rd Air) be used to contain the subverted 207th Chemical.|
|Unknown units||n/a||,||These are shoulder badges from human soldiers of unspecified units.|
The lightning bolt might suggest a quick-response unit.
999 is the telephone number for the emergency services in the UK, among other countries, and is the oldest such number in the world.
|Vespiary Squad||Most unusual uniform observed for normal human troops - the Wasp eater-handlers wear a deep-hooded floor-length cape topped with a warrior-bug head carapace; goggles and filter mask (which resembles insect mandibles); an option of full or fingerless gloves; and a utility belt which may also hold weasel-treats. Non-coms and regular troops wear a blue, green and gold version of the more typical Wulfenbach uniform. Distinctive insect wings on Wulfenbach badge.|
