General Information
Country Flag-Australia.jpg Australia


The Redbacks were once an extremely significant part of the eAustralian military.

Originally created in the original set up of the eAustralian minister by Tecchi in late december 2008 and early 2009, they were responsible for the sending of gifts and weapons to the Australian Military, but majorly focusing upon the eAustralian military elite, the DropBears.

The most significant contribution from the RedBacks to date would be their contributions with the DropBears, with the gifting and running of supplies in the original war for New South Wales.

The last official government article that mentions their use was this one, in which it was stated that the squad commanders for the Redbacks would be announced at a later date. Soon afterwards, it was announced by the Australian Defence Department that the Australian Commando Unit Koalas would be created.

Their responsibilities

Tecchi, the then Minister of Defence of Australia described their responsibilities as follows:

"They are the lifeline to the Dropbears. A Redback's responsibilities include distributing weapons and moving tickets, as well as gifting Dropbears.

- Active (online once a day)
- Knowledge of the Wellness System and Gifting
- No strength or level requirements![1]

It was also possible for a member of the Redbacks to join a "fighting unit", which at that time was either the DropBears or the Australian Defence Force.


Squads were, by early April, able to be seen to be set up in squad of 8, and were, as well as supplying the military with both gifts and weapons, meant to be the 33rd-64th strongest military citizens of Australia (the highest 32 being members of the DropBears. This, then, is believed to be seen as its moving towards the creation of the Australian Commando Unit Koalas.

Redback Retirement

The Redbacks were officially retired in mid 2009.


The Redbacks were re-instated officially in January 2010.
