Unit Profile (as of 3062)
Nickname unknown
Parent Formation Filtvelt Military Academy
Formed unknown



Not highly regarded, the Filtvelt Academy Training Battalion is attached to the Filtvelt Military Academy. As one of the few schools in the Federated Suns Outback region, the soldiers assigned to the training battalion work very hard to justify their presence. Unfortunately, their status as an Outback school means that many regular line AFFS officers regard them as barely trained bumpkins.

In 3062, a new command staff arrived. These officers transferred from the Second Robinson Rangers as a group. This simultaneously improved the quality of the teaching staff and revitalized the training battalion.

Civil War[edit]

They faced Allied forces and were disarmed but later returned to service defending the Periphery border.[1]


During the Jihad the Filtvelt Academy Training Battalion became the First Filtvelt Citizen's Militia.[2][3] Training continued at the academy, with the Filtvelt Coalition attempting to expand the output from the academy as the Coalition's economic and industrial bases improved.[4]


As of 3062 the commanding officer was Kommandant Asumi Tomisawa.[5] In 3067 the training battalion was commanded by Major Erich LeBeau.[6]
