Default 2:19 Chihadist Hellfire.......ya, I need help :P

Right, since I'm changing my play-style to Drop Troops, I want to change my regiments number and name a bit. OK, so....After the "Chihadist Hellfire", I usual add these:

Riflemen; used for Infantry regiments
Armorers; use for Mechanized Infantry regiments
Cannoneers; used for Tank regiments
Bombardiers; used for Artillery regiments

And.....I having problems finding a good work for Drop Troops. So any suggestions? Oh, BTW my regiment's verse from the the Holy Book of Chihad :P

2:19 Of a violent cloudburst in the sky, with utter darkness, thunder and lightning: they put their fingers into their ears to keep out the peals of thunder, in terror of death; but Emperor and His Hammer encompasses all who deny the truth.

The original verse from the Qu'ran was:

2:19 Or [the parable] of a violent cloudburst in the sky, with utter darkness, thunder and lightning: they put their fingers into their ears to keep out the peals of thunder, in terror of death; but God encompasses [with His might] all who deny the truth.

So any improvements needed on it?

Thanks in advance

Ooooooo.....Tom, will you not cease to amaze me? Is either that or I'm dumb :P

Anyway....

Grenadiers; I don't have any kind of grenades on my units :P
Fusilier; hard to pronounce :P
Dragoons; I'll use this to name my Mechanized regiments now :P
Light Infantry; interesting thing came up while I look this up on Wikipedia. Skirmishers came up. Which might fit the bill.

What you guys think of "2:19th Chihadist Hellfire Skirmishers" for my Drop Troop Regiment?

Chihadist Hellfire Ifrits, which according to wikipedia at least can be spelled efreet, ifreet, afrit or afreet. While your using your holy text for inspiration, why not take a little more.

Ifrits.....hmmm maybe as a nickname but still I need a common name for all Drop Troops. And what do you mean take a little more? I mean....are there more?

As in take a little more inspiration since you've effectively lifted a passage from the Qu'ran for your regiment's verse. Apparently Djinn or alternatively Jinn are mentioned in your good book at least according to this Wikipedia article, while Ifrits are mentioned here. There is no way of putting this without making it sound vaguely sinister, but the origins of Abrahamic-based demonology is a interest of mine.

kindof think "2:19 Chihadist Hellfire Airborne" has a nice ring to it :P

hmm

Jumpers?
Divers?
Droppers?(... okay stopping this line of thinking it's getting silly : )
Seraphim?(angels of some sort, maybe a extremely elite/fanatical force? Maybe they are a small but highly honored force *shrugs*)
Malak/Malakh?(wiki says arabic/hebrewic term for angel)
