Fighting Tiger Fast Attack
Strike before the enemy draws his weapon: this is the motto of Jatis Ghuyarashtra, whose Tigers have made speed the cornerstone of their strategy. Fighting Tiger armies are almost always able to field a wide variety of swift assault units.

Tigers of Kali see "Assault Squad" in Codex: Space Marines
All Tigers of Kali are female and dedicate themselves to the Vedic goddess of death and slaughter. They have been known to keep and use close combat weapons that they have taken in battle from defeated aliens like Eldar and Orks. By tradition, Tigers of Kali deploy in 10-strong squads.

Tigers of Indra: Vanguard Veteran Fighting Tigers  see "Vanguard Veteran Squad" in Codex: Space Marines
Chosen from the best Tigers of Rudra and Kali, these Space Marines still honor their former deity but dedicate themselves anew to Indra, captain of the gods. Vanguard squads may be integrated by jatis and sex. Exceptional members of these squads may become Terminators. These squads tend to be larger than Sternguard units. One exception Vanguard unit is the Fighting Tiger Black Ops, who specialize in jungle warfare and wear green armor as camoflauge. Recently, this squad rooted out a Chaos sect that had infiltrated Veda itself.

Land Speeder Squadron see "Land Speeder Squadron" in Codex: Space Marines
Land Speeders, LS Typhoons, and LS Tornadoes are crewed by Tigers of Rudra. By tradition, each Land Speeder in a squadron has the same name and is distinguished by number. Famous Fighting Tiger squadrons include the Flying Tigers and the Tiger Sharks.

Bike Squads; Attack Bike Squads
see "Bike Squad" and "Attack Bike Squad" in Codex: Space Marines
All Bike and Attack Bike squads are crewed by Tigers of Kali. Note that bikes are the only Fighting Tiger vehicles that are not named. 

Scout Bike Squad
see "Scout Bike Squad" in Codex: Space Marines
All Scout bike squads are crewed by female Tigers of Puchan.  These units typically support regular Bike Squads or female infantry Scouts squads. 

Land Speeder Storm Squadron 
see "Land Speeder Storm" in Codex: Space Marines
All Land Speeder Storm vehicles are crewed by male Tigers of Puchan.  Transported Scouts may be of either sex. Pilots and gunners who excel in their duties may be promoted to serve as crews for Land Speeders, Typhoons, and Tornadoes.
 

Excerpt from report by Anhuran Patel, Chief Tiger of Savitri 
(Jatis Ghuyarashtra), to Rajas Surya Ashoka and Shrendi Vastar, 
concerning feasibility of female Space Marines
Human armies that have used females as warriors have always faced questions about strength, stamina, sexuality, and aggressiveness. After extensive research, we have found that not only are the processes of transforming females into Space Marines little different from those used with males, but that these processes negate many of those questions. 

Drugs and surgery will allow each female Fighting Tiger to be as strong, quick, and resilient as males. As we do with male Space Marines, we will neuter the females, removing or nullifying reproductive systems so that they will be mentally/emotionally unwilling and physically unable to procreate. Details follow in the pages provided, but, in summary, we recommend beginning the program immediately (at least on a temporary basis) to fill personnel ranks.
