Unit Description:
      The Regult is the standard one-man combat craft of the Zentraedi Clone Army. The Tactical Battlepod is a craft designed for combat on a planetary surface, though it is also effective fighting in the depths of deep space. Like the Zentraedi Army as a whole, the Regult is viewed as an expendable, and serves as Zentraedi's infantry. Each ship of Cruiser class or larger carries a significant complement of battlepods, with larger ships carrying more than a hundred. Regults are organised into squads, rather than fighter flights. One member of each squad may have a special combat pod which either replaces its turret with light or heavy missiles, or replaces all weaponry with sophisticated scouting equipment. The typical pod is well armed with a pair of particle cannons and a defensive turret, however the pod itself is not very durable and has relatively thin armour and a weak frame, making attrition among Battlepods some of the highest in any space navy in known space, save for perhaps the Invid.
