United Galaxy Templar Armed Forces (Templar Elites)
We are the more than just skilled soldiers, we have a specific role that the Knights have difficulties. While they take the battle to a more personal level, we take the battle near its end.The Templar Elites are one of the United Galaxy most professional formations in the Templar Armed Forces. The Templar Elites will conduct any near-impossible mission to promise victory for the empire by taking over enemy spaceships, reconnaissance, and bringing the battle to its end by using their wits and powerful weaponry.
The total amount of personal is uncounted. This is because the empire doesn’t want the enemy to know the number of elites in service. Speculations from enemy forces believe the number of personal ranges from 30 trillion to 100 quadrillion.
The equipment can be different depending on the planet the elites is stationed at. However, the solider must all carry this equipment to maintain some uniformity.
Templar war suit mark IIThe Elite forces use the Templar war suit mark II. The suit works similarly to the mark I, but it has further upgrades. The suit is equipped with bionic googles that can now see through mater to find any thermal readings, heartbeats, or sounds. The suit is also able to make the user survive in space for a short duration of time.
MED KITThe item is issued to every elite personnel to tend to their own wounds in battle. Like that will be an issue since they seem to never be able to get hit.
SURVIVAL KITIn case the elite is lost from their section, the kit has supplies that would last three days. Or more if they pack a sandwich than it would last for a month.

The Templar Elites will use any vehicle that is within the United Galaxy. But they have their own specialised vehicle that no other forces are allowed to use.
SPEAR HEADUsed only by the Templar Elites, the vehicle is designed to pierce through the spaceships armour making the elites enter the ship and to conduct their mission. The vehicle can carry 15 members at once. The vehicle has defensive weapons to protect the shuttle from harm. These are four 75cal machineguns, 50 homing rockets, and a light laser.
The tactics of the Templar Armed Forces is to play defensive. Fortifying any position they take to halt any enemy advancement. The role of the Templar Elites is to breach enemy positions and conduct recon operations to map out the terrain and the enemy in the area. The Templar Elites will also perform spacecraft breaching operations to take over enemy spacecraft or to kill a high-value target.
Unlike other forces within the Templar Armed Forces, the planet cannot alter or modify the training of the Templar Elites; the preparation of an ordinary soldier to become an elite will take almost two years. The Templar Elite candidates will go through a fitness test to achieve the above average fitness requirements determined for that species. If the candidates pass the fitness test they will go through four months of endurance training, each week they will do 20-kilometre runs, 10 kilometre swims, and 40-kilometre hikes with 40 kilograms of equipment. 5% of candidates will die during this time by exhaustion or environmental means. At the end of endurance training, the 20% of candidates that underperformed compared to other candidates will go back to their original forces. After the endurance training, the candidates will go through five months of combat training. During this time the candidates are trained in zero gravity infantry combat, spacecraft breaching/capture and control, advance recognisance, and advance hand-to-hand combat against other species within the galaxy. It is very uncommon that candidates will die during the combat training because they either fail to follow safety procedures or environmental factors; the death rate is around 2%. Candidates are tested, but it is uncommon if they failed during the testing stages. The next stage is the survival stage, which will last four months. During this stage, the candidates will be taught how to survive in any environment, how to survive behind enemy lines, and in a sporg/occupied enemy spacecraft if the breaching mission is unsuccessful. At the end of the lessons, the candidate will be tested by being thrown at a random location on the planet, with a search and kill warrant on their head. Their mission is to return to base in one month, without killing anyone for any reason. Usually, 30% of candidates will die from the police force, garrison force, and civilians. The final stage of training is called the psychological residence and mental endurance test, this stage will last over five months. The candidate will go through common interrogation methods, humiliation, psychological manipulation, and mental breaching techniques by drugs, magic, etc. 40% of the remaining candidates will leave the program due to the hardship of the interrogations and mental manipulation of the mind. Magical beings like angels, demons, and magic users. Will have an extra two months to go through magical combat training to learn more advance spells. At the end of the training, the candidate who passed all of the tests will become a member of the Templar Elites and will be rewarded the Star of Iron.
The Templar Elites will not have any assistance from any Templar forces, the Templar Elites must be able to be self-reliant and reliable. The only time the Templar Elites can have combat assistance is when they are doing joint operations with the Templar Knights.

The upkeep of each soldier can be around 1,000 - 500,000UD It’s up to the planet on how they pay for equipment and soldiers.
To be a member of the Templar Elites a soldier must be one of the top 10% of students based in the Templar War Academy; it doesn’t matter what force the soldier is apart on except for the Templar Knights. The other way a soldier can become a Templar Elite is performing well in battle and conflict by showing a tremendous amount of skill and courage.
The history of the Templar Elites is classified. The Templar Elites are shrouded in secrecy that the ordinary citizen won’t even know of their existence. The Templar Armed Forces will also try to keep operations the Templar Elites conducted hidden away under lock and key. Stories speculate from other forces believe the Templar Elites have at times have competitions against the Templar Knights. Some rumours state they might at times have their own personal battles to prove who is the better elite force. At times the Templar Elites will give false stories to enemy officers or tell them stories that are half true. Famous stories the Templar Elites like to spread around is a story of a fire squad that single-handedly took over a planet by hacking into the planetary defence systems and pointing the guns at the defenders' cities.
