Tallarn Rough Rider on a Mukaali[2]

Mukaali are a type of xenos utilized by Tallarn Desert Raiders Rough Riders. These are desert-dwelling herbivores, used as large mounts, and are indigenous to the Desert World of Goru-Prime. Tallarn has an agreement with Goru-Prime to import thousands of Mukaali's every ten years. Mukaali are capable of living for long periods of times without food or water, but conversely have very poor tolerance to cold climates.[1]

The main Mukaali advantage over a horse is its exceptional endurance and load bearing capability. Their feet as specifically crafted to move over sand at high speeds, and large soft pads help spread their weight to avoid sinking in soft sand. Because of these evolutionary advantages, Mukaali-mounted Rough Rider squadron can range further afield and carry more equipment than a horse-mounted squadron.[1]
