The Naffatûn form a unit of Ghulam Infantry equipped with incendiary arms.
They are usually deployed instead of other infantry units to clear routes and areas, what, in their slang they call ?clearing the undergrowth? (using ?slash and burn? techniques).
The Naffatûn go into battle alone which is understandable given that that they are loaded with flammable equipment. They carry extra loads of Naft (highly concentrated napalm) in their backpacks and their flamethrowers are equipped with pressurized tanks of gelatinized gasoline. Were they to receive a direct hit, even though it was a stray bullet, they would be transformed into a flaming hell. Who would want to be at their side then?
“The hotter the mess, the more I like it!”
Areef (Corporal) Fadia Ashrawi, Naffatûn Regiment. Central Norstralia Front. Paradiso. Second Offensive.
The Naffatûn are a specialist unit of the Ghulam Infantry, capable of operating incendiary armaments. Although their operational profile comprises only assault techniques and close combat skills, the protracted Paradiso conflict has showcased their special aptitude for actions in the planet’s dense jungle environment. Naffatûn are deployed as a light assault force, effective against other infantry forces, to open trails and clear areas of enemy presence, an operation they call “weeding out”, a crude term for an even cruder task.
Naffatûns tend to be left alone in combat. Think about it. They carry as much flammable equipment as they can. They backpacks are full of extra Napht (hyper-concentrated napalm) charges and their flamethrowers are full of pressurized self-accelerating incendiary gel. A lucky shot, or even a stray bullet, is liable to set them ablaze and turn their surroundings into a fiery hell. Would you choose to stand by their side?
