Parent Formation Outworlds Alliance Militia
Formed 2570s

Unit Description[edit]

The Alliance Armored Corps was formed during the 2570s in the buildup to the Reunification War and acted as the backbone of the Outworlds Alliance Militia.[1]



Formed as a result of the order issued by Outworlds Alliance President Grigori Avellar in 2572 that created the Outworlds Alliance Militia, the Alliance Armored Corps was a part of the crash armament programme that resulted, and was equipped with a mixture of vehicles and equipment sourced covertly from outside the Alliance and armored vehicles manufactured by Alliance industries which were realigned by the President.[2][3]

In the years between 2571 and 2581, military recruitment from within the Outworlds Alliance was extremely low, and the OAM was forced to rely on recruiting foreigners. This would change after events in the first year of the war, but by the time the war began, the Alliance Armored Corps consisted of four armored divisions, largely crewed by foreign-born troops with military experience.[3][4]

Reunification War[edit]

The Alliance Armored Corps would fight on a number of Alliance worlds during the Star League invasion of the Alliance, although never as a corps; the largest deployments were at division-level. The 1st and 2nd Armored Divisions would fight largely against units from the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery who were acting in support of the Star League Task Force, although the 2nd Armored Division would also face the SLDF late in the war on Cerberus. The 3rd and 4th Armored Divisions would fight against SLDF troops throughout the war, including spending several years helping contest the Star League occupation of Lushann. In total, the Alliance Armored Corps would fight on a dozen different worlds against the invaders, and despite heavy losses would continue to serve the Alliance for the entire war.[5]
