Achernar Capellan March Militia
Unit Profile (as of 3067)
Nickname unknown
Parent Formation Capellan March Militia
Formed unknown

Originally known as the Achernar Sarna March Militia. With the formation of The Republic of the Sphere, the planetary defense became a Republic Standing Guard unit.

History[edit]

After the 3057 Marik-Liao offensive that claimed much of the Sarna March, the Militia was placed under the control of the Capellan March Militia.[1]

During the FedCom Civil War the Achernar CMM fought for Katherine Steiner-Davion. During the later waves of the Civil War, the Achernar CMM was heavily damaged. Achernar officially became part of the Capellan March Militia in 3067, after the FedCom Civil War ended.[1] The fighting of the Civil War reduced them to approximately half their pre-Civil War strength.[2]

Jihad[edit]

Achernar BattleMechs maintained a factory named the West Fabrication Facility on Achernar, which for a long time was a producer of IndustrialMechs. When the Word of Blake captured Achernar it rebuilt some of the production lines within the West Fabrication Facility to produce either (or both of) the OSP-25 Osprey or OSP-26 Osprey BattleMech.[3][4] The West Fabrication Facility was completely destroyed in June 3077 when the Achernar Protectorate Militia ignored the surrender issued by the planetary governor to the allied coalition forces and instead dug in around the plant, forcing the task force on the Federated Suns front of Operation SCOUR to root out the militia from the factory complexes, leveling its facilities in the process.[5]
