|Colonel of the Regiment:||The Duke of Westmarch|
|Established:||26 AUG 2022|
|Nickname(s):||The Rifles, The Westmarchers|
|Reporting to:||Fort Gryphon|
The Rifles are headquartered at Fort Gryphon and are an elite Light Infantry force trained to fight in rugged mountainous terrain and to deploy rapidly on short notice, emphasizing speed and mobility.
The Rifles rely on their ability to operate under restrictive conditions, surprise, violence of action, training, stealth, field craft, and fitness levels of the individual soldiers. Despite the usage of the term "light", forces in a light unit will normally carry heavier individual loads vis-à-vis other forces; they must carry everything they require to fight, survive and win.
