Light infantry are lightly armed and armored terran troops specialized in defending installations. They were to be introduced in StarCraft: Ghost.

StarCraft: GhostEdit

Light infantry wear light armor which offers less protection than CMC Powered Combat Suits.[1]

They were the basic terran unit in the Invasion Mode. They could "upgrade" into more powerful units such as the marine (two points), firebat (three points) or ghost (five points).[2]

EquipmentEdit

Light infantry armament can range from the Torrent SR-8 shotgun[3][1] for close-quarters to submachine guns[3] and/or gauss rifles.[1] They may be issued with additional munitions depending on mission, for example, BE3 sticky grenades for Mobile Conflict missions.[3]

Light infantry are also technically proficient.

They can build automated chain guns. These automated weapons are short-ranged and are more powerful than the shotguns they normally carry.[3] They can be attached to vehicles as well.[5]

They also have the ability to build and service armored flak gun turrets, which can be placed either in an installation or on a battlefield; the flak guns are long-ranged weapons.[3]

Light infantry can only put one turret on the map, at least in Invasion Mode.[6]

Light infantry can build stationary[7] decloaking devices.[1][3]

Known Light InfantryEdit

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II that is ambiguously canonical.

NotesEdit

Light infantry may have been seen manning vulture hover bikes in the battle at Artika.[8]
