The Charter Enforcement Brigades (CEBs) of the NTSC do not have a particularly long or active heritage, since most minor mutinies and rebellions of planetary outposts or settlements could be easily quelled by the threat of orbital bombardment by Navy Battleships. The Secession wars, however, changed much of that, and Terran ground forces have seen a lot of action in recent decades – much of that in offensive reclamation of former Alliance-held positions. Due to this, many of the CEBs have very modern equipment, developed closely with Hawker Industries, and adapting existing Terran design philosophies to the demands of modern orbital-drop combat.
The three most common ships used by the NTSCs CEBs are the Solar Carrier – a project very much led by Hawker Industries to Terran specifications, the Horizon Assault Cruiser (a traditional Terran design) and the Nadir Frigate – a vessel much adapted from its sister ship, the Armsman. Terran planetfall strategy typically relies on clearing drop sites with heavy capital bombardment prior to planetary offensives, but these three ships are all designed to operate in hostile theatres – dropping substantial forces close to the front lines and providing a base of operational and long-range fire support at the same time.
