History[edit]

The Accrington Freedom Theater Militia was one of the first march militia units founded in the Lyran Commonwealth. In 3036 they faced their first challenge, a raid by the 5th Amphigean Light Assault Group. The lighter Combine 'Mechs ran rings around the heavy Lyran units, making a mockery of the Accrington Militia's superior numbers.[1] As a result of this encounter, the March Militia system was met with scorn by the LCAF regional commanders on Skye.

During the FedCom Civil War the Accrington FTM sided with elements of the Free Skye Movement. They took the Freedom Theater command compound on Freedom but sustained heavy losses in the process. However, they quickly rebuilt.[2]

After the destruction of the Jihad a battalion of the Accrington FTM was transferred to the 5th Lyran Guards to help that unit rebuild.[3]

Officers[edit]

In 3054 the unit is commanded by Leftenant General Shmuel de Fermat.[4]

As of 3062 the commanding officer is Colonel Marc Hulley. He assumed command in 3058.[1] He was still in command in 3067.[5]

Tactics[edit]

The Accrington Freedom Theater Militia uses artillery extensively, and their infantry forces are highly skilled at placing ambushes.[1]
