Bayou is actually slang for BIU, which stands for Bounding Infantry Unit. These specialized soldiers are based in Zagand, and through a combination of Technology, physical prowess, and constant training employ a unique fighting style; Specialized gear allows them to jump dozens of meters, allowing them to jump between mushroom tops, and drop into unaware enemy formations. Armed with powerful shotguns, they are known for dropping down into groups of enemies, unleashing their weapons into a disorganized foe, and bounding away before they can retaliate. They have recently been employing a previously unthought of tactic in air battles. Leaping from buildings, or mushrooms tops, they will attempt to bring down enemy troop transports in mid air. While dangerous, this tactic has proven to be very useful, and is being employed more and more as the war draws out.
