Diné — One of three major territories worldwide, Diné is comprised of a relatively homogenous population of pre-glacial North American Indian peoples, primarily from the former Navajo, Hopi, Apache and Pima tribes. The Diné live under conditions more severe than most other organized groups worldwide, but the main obstacle to official statehood appears to be self-imposed. They follow an intensely isolationist policy, and even their nearby neighbor California – which is ready and willing to help former USA citizens – rarely hears from them. Offers of assistance after times of storm or cold are rarely accepted. Visitors to Diné territory usually encounter a friendly and quiet people scattered amongst a loose-knit series of towns and villages which are themselves relatively independent. The heart of Diné territory lies on the inland plateau, sheltered amongst numerous deep valleys which protects their cliff-hugging towns.

Support type pods are combat units in their own right, and they typically attempt to remain attached to the battlesite in order to provide direct power and fire support to friendly MGV or "MEK' formations. DPS units usually carry a heavy compliment of direct fire support weapons and systems for suppressing enemy defenses and communications.
