fighters, I believe.  They have downswept wings that look like a
crescent moon from above, a sharply tapered cockpit/fuselage, and a very
wide flat tail.  They look a lot like a falcon or hawk, and I've decided
to use them as the basis for a 6mm "Stargate" force -- a la both the
original movie and the SG-1 show.  My aim is to make them reflect the
show, and as such, my force composition will intentionally have the
flaws that the forces in the show have -- namely poor range, a lack of
weapon diversity, etc.

Ahhh, the infamous "why can't they hit the broadside of a barn with a 
staff weapon?"	(8-)  (There was an episode where they actually 
addressed that, and basically called the staff weapon a weapon of 
terror, while the P90 was a weapon of war.  It was a great scene.  
5th season I think, when SG-1 was training the renegade Ja'fa).

I would actually have them as non-PA troops -- the armour (at least,
as demonstrated on the show) is about equal to ballastic weapons for
both helmeted and unhelmeted guards, but both appear equally useless 
against staff weapons or Zat guns.  As well, there's no indication 
that the armour gives any sort of strength amplification.

Somebody already mentioned the Al'kesh bomber.	Jaffa don't 
have any ground vehicles that we've seen on the show (up to
the end of Season 6, Season 7 hasn't aired in Canada yet, the
buggers.)   They do have ground emplacement weapons, the
equivalent of those small anti-tank guns, but I don't think 
anybody's ever seen if they were mobile or not.

If you can find a copy to thumb through, the Stargate SG-1 RPG
might provide some good ideas.
