Janjira is a fortress world, a desert planet but rife with beautiful oases with crystalline water and several expansive tropical jungles in the southern hemisphere. The inside of the planet is just packed full of extremely valuable minerals and metals that the Adeptus Mechanicus requires to build the machines that help to keep the Imperial military marching on, from ships to vehicles to the most humble of charge packs.

Janjira is, of course, also a hot target for alien forces. It is perched near the edge of space that is claimed as territory by an Ork Warboss known as the Arch-Arsonist. Orks, thereby, regularly assault Janjira in an attempt to oust the human presence there and hollow it out for more 'flash gubbinz.' They are seeded amongst the southern jungles, but the deserts and savannahs that make up the majority of the planet's surface make them clear targets for the heavy artillery and mechanized forces that the Janjirans tend to employ, furnished by their Mechanicus backers and a good presence of tech-priests to keep it all running on the arid planet.

The 117th Janjiran Kshatriya are a versatile and hardened regiment of the Janjiran Guard, quick to mount up in chimera tanks and move out to sensitive locations, sealing breaches in desert walls and clearing land of Greenskin settlement with lightning tactics and utter hatred and impunity. Their excellent record, cavalier commander and oddly diverse makeup cause some other regiments to refer to the 117th as 'The Kitchen Sink.' If nothing else works, throw the 117th at it and they will get the job DONE.
