Nickname
Parent Formation Timbuktu Theater Militia
formerly Florida Periphery March Militia
Formed 3043[1]

The Florida Timbuktu Theater Militia was formed in 3043. Primarily used as a defensive unit, but they undertook several other nonmilitary tasks in their Periphery based operations area.[1]

History[edit]

After the Florida TTM was established, it took part in several scientific expeditions. The unit was assigned to guard a group of planetary surveyors who were working near the Circinus Federation. Later they supplied several protection and support teams to scientific expeditions in the Enders Cluster. These guard duties were well-suited to the Florida TMM, as their equipment wasn't top of the line and wouldn't be as effective on the battlefield.[1]

The Florida TTM was loyal to Katherine Steiner-Davion in the FedCom Civil War, but didn't participate in any combat actions.[2]

Though the Florida TMM didn't participate in the Jihad, a battalion of troops was transferred out of the unit to help rebuild the 1st Royal Guards.[3]

In 3145 the Florida TMM was still guarding the Commonwealth's Periphery border. They also hosted several representatives from the Rim Collection who were investigating the possibility of providing the Florida TMM with autocannons and ammunition. This would allow the Florida TMM to move away from the mostly energy weapon based loadout of their 'Mechs and vehicles.[4] At this time they were stationed at Halifax.[5]

Officers[edit]

As of 3050 to 3062 the commanding officer was Leftenant General Henry Watkins, he promoted later to the rank of an Colonel and is still in 3067 the units commander.[6][7][1][8]

As of 3085 the commanding officer is Colonel Trevor Watkins.[9]

In 3145 the commanding officer is Colonel Lorena Farmer.[5]

Tactics[edit]

They haven't fought any large engagements yet but simulated battles showed that this command fights with their all.[1]
