The K Truppe (German for "K Troop"), also known as the "massacre unit"[1], is the Mars Front der Befreien's commando unit.


The unit was deployed in support of Operation Hagel, a joint military operation to recapture Olympus Spaceport in ES 591. During the fighting they engaged the Neo-Third Reich Division at Echo Building, during which multiple hostages were killed. Whether by accident or design, K Truppe later got mixed up in fighting their temporary allies during the operation, the Mars Kingdom Parliament's airborne brigade Gespenst.
