History[edit]

The homeworlds of the 1st Bell Training Battalion are Axton and Bell.[1] The unit is only on one of these worlds for approximately one third of the year however. The remainder of the time is spent traveling to and training on the various worlds of the Valexia PDZ. The variety of environments provides a much-needed dose of reality for the students.

Civil War[edit]

The Bell Training Battalion was involved in the fighting against the 5th FedCom RCT on Axton. There they suffered losses from the Fifth's nuclear strikes. The need to replace lost soldiers from other units also thinned their ranks considerably.[2]

Jihad[edit]

In 3078 the Academy Appropriations War Powers Act deactivated all the training battalion and public academy cadre units and transferred their men and machines to front-line forces. Their future is unclear.[3]

Dark Age[edit]

The First Bell Training Battalion was reactivated in 3136 by Caleb Davion.[4] The unit was stationed on its namesake world in 3145.[5]

Officers[edit]

In 3025 the commanding officer is Light Colonel Danial Brewer.[6]

In 3050 the unit was commanded by Kommandant Paula Quarnry.[7] She was still in command in [[3054].[8]

As of 3062 the commanding officer was Leftenant Colonel Milko Pochtarev.[1] He replaced Kommandant Paula Quandry. Kommandant Quandry allowed discipline to lax, and one of Colonel Pochtarev's first acts was to release a company's worth of cadets from their obligations to the AFFS.

After the FedCom Civil War in 3067, the battalion was commanded by Major Angus Ridgeway.[9]

In 3145 the commanding officer is Colonel Simon B. Constantine.[5]

Tactics[edit]

Like most training battalions, the First Bell Training Battalion lacks any tactical specialties.
