    O-12 is the latest faction added to the game, with only 1 sectorial.
    I'm not really into adding sectorials or factions to the game, but I think O-12 really lack profiles compared to any other faction.

    Looking at their overall missing profiles (camo tokens especially) and the numerous mentions of "bureau noir" in the N4 lore book, I think that next sectorial might be it.

    Do you have any ideas how O-12 will grow ?
    Do you think Bureau noir will be a thing ?

    I don't think the Bureau Noir will ever be a sectorial. The department is very much an internal policing, investigation, and espianoge sort of deal and far less an armed force of any kind.

    That being said, I would love for the next O-12 sectorial to have that same kind of focus on guile and lateral combat that one would associate with a sneaksy bureau.

    Something with a focus on some of the shadier aspects of O-12 that they sometimes need to engage in. PSI-Cops, Gangbusters, Cyberghosts, Betatroopers, Razors, Lynx's, Cuervo Goldstein, Casanova, some new sneaky midfield mofos. A lighter, FD(+8) Hidden Deployment HI to annoy people with would be dope. Maybe a new combat REM and a couple mercs alongside the Betas for the whole deniable assets vibe. Something with Deployable Repeaters would be cool.

    Currently the whole O-12 generic army is looking like SWORDFOR.
    As Starmada is a subsection of Spatha, the Gladius Teams could be another sectorial.

    Well, it's as equal as looking like Starmada too... tbh if they found Starmada legit enough to be a sectorial, same could goes for SWORDFOR.

    Considering the limited size of Bureau Aegis forces, all sectorials coming from it are likely to share several units.
    Remove Starmada dedicated units and Circular linked units from the Starmada Sectorial (Knights of Santiago, Crushers, Bluecoats, Nyoka, Bronzes, Raptors, Tian Gou... and I'm not talking about the characters) and you have the core of any potential O-12 sectorial.

    I think to have the whole SWORDFOR as a sectorial would imply more units from other Bureaux in the O-12 generic army. Currently, most (if not all) of non merc units in the generic army are from various branches of Section Spatha (Glo-Pol, Psi Unit, Starmada...).

    I think you may have something there. Thematically and functionally, Bureau Noir would really fit well into the hole currently left in O-12.

    Troops not in core O-12 likely to show up in Bureau Noir:

    • Hexas seem like a sure thing.
    • Another Pan O unit with an HQ function, or a new special character with a Pan O background
    • Something sneaky but unique from YJ like Kanren. I’m tempted to say Hac Tao but doubt YJ would let anything like that out of their toychest.
    • Maybe the YJ visor combat remotes (even Dashat can get those, so not a big stretch)? Or even (gasp) the Su-Jian?
    • Characters Emily Handelman, Knauf (depending on where in the timeline this is situated)
    • Le Muet
    • Maybe CSUs as the generic merc element “disposables.”
    • Access to both Anaconda and Zeta TAGs?

    @Savnock I do agree with your list, and I'd love to see the hac tao coming there !

    Another thing I thinked about is how "bureau noir" is strongly linked to the way CB manages news sectorials: they tend to add many loan profiles instead of new ones, and bureau noir works like that. It's a good marketing and lore approach of the sectorial.

    Also, Bureau Noir does some kind of shady black ops and it's totally in the fluff of infinity skirmishes

    The job descriptions you give there sound dangerously like Equinox territory...

    have been waiting aleph and tohaa sectorials since i started playing this game.
    excitement became wondering , wondering became sadness
    sadness became annoyed state.
    i changed and played different things and was not a solution at all.
    i suggest not to wait anything.
