    How do GK conceal themselves

    How do GK conceal themselves when they are in orbit around a planet. An example: Medusa V with all the ships in orbit how do they make there pressance unknown? Would they have other chapter symbols or would they use the Inquisition symblos and people would just leave them alone?

    Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.

    They probably just broadcast =I= ID and no one asks questions. EVER. Lots of inquisitors use false IDs and sneak around, but that really doesn't seem like the Grey Knight's style, however secretive they are.

    Generally whatever GK contingent was present would likely be carried in aboard an Inquisitorial warship, and nobody's going to be asking a lot of questions.

    In a case where the threat was so dire that they actually committed some of the GK's own vessels and the sizeable force associated with it, I should think that they'd either just shut up and get overlooked in the chaos (since all hell would quite literally be breaking loose by this point), or just play the old "=I= business, butt out" card.

    Grey Knight strike cruisers have cloaks and "quiet" warp engines, which allows them to - surprisingly - sneak up on people. They're inured to psychic detection due to the billions and billions of hexagrammic wards, they have other tech to stop more conventional detection methods, and if they broadcast any identification whatsoever it would be [=I=] and no-one would ask because, hey - Inquisitors. Not a friendly bunch.

    Keep in mind that they can pass as "normal" Space Marines if they have to, and that they don't hang around anywhere for very long if thye can help it. They're a strike force, hence strike cruiser, so they tend to do the striking and then on with the buggering off so the Imperial Guard can clean up the mess.

    Yeah, very few people even know of the existence of the Grey Knights to begin with. They have been witnessed on occasion, but have been passed off as another divergent space marine chapter, when they cannot operate as covertly as they like. That way hundreds of citizens don't have to die merely for seeing them.

    As far as their vessels, I'd go with the observations above. I'm not familiar with them in that regard.
