Ooh, I like that.

The military likes puns as much as anybody.
Or, a more generic: Strike Force LEO.
And I like that. A lot. Doitsu and fjtorres, for the win!

I wonder whether I can co-opt the rest of the Zodiac signs as descriptors for other military units. The special ops teams are LEOs. Could the heavy artillery spacecraft be TAURUSes? And the cyberwarfare teams be SCORPIOs? Because using astrological constellations to describe orbital combatants would be just too cool.

Time to go acronym hunting.
