Recon Service

The Recon Service takes on all reconnaissance tasks. The most common mission profile is the detection of lost or damaged ships. This is usually done in association with other CESAR sections, which then take over all other tasks that arise.

Due to the nature of their mission, they are not part of the fighting force and are therefore only minimally armed and only for self-defence.
Specialists from the Recon Service are occasionally requested to assess the situation and the degree of danger in the area of operation in advance of a CSAR mission.

The primary vessels used are the Anvil Carrack, Anvil Terrapin and Anvil Hornet Tracker. The mission formats of the Recon Section are CSAR and ESAR.
