Lyran March System

Overview[edit]

Before 3025[edit]

Before the merger of the two separate military (LCAF + AFFS) into one unified organization (AFFC) both states had their own form to organize their militia. The LCAF used the Theater/District System and the AFFS were organized after the March/Polymorphous Defense Zone system. The Davion influence at the transformation was massive. Before the creation of the Federated Commonwealth the LCAF organized their territory in the following structure:

Draconis Combine border[1]

  • Trellshire Theater[1]
  • Tamar Theater [1]
  • Ryde Theater[1]

Free Worlds League border[1]

  • Wyatt Theater[1]
  • Ford Theater[1]
  • Cavanaugh Theater[1]

Periphery border (The theaters at that border are larger and cover more territory)[1]

  • Timbuktu Theater[1]
  • Main Street Theater[1]
  • Bone Theater[1]

Note: A typical Theater has the dimension of 30 parsecs x 18 parsecs. At least 5 mech commands at regimentlevel are within the borders of such a Theater. [1]

3040[edit]

The High Command decided to use the established system of House Davion for the transformation of the Lyran militia system. The old Theaters were divided into 3 equal measured Commands (Polymorphous Defense Zone) and the higher organization level was called Operations Area (equivalent to a Combat Theater in Davion space). [2]

The Lyran territory was organized into 5 Marches:[2]:

  • Sarna March[2] - captured Liao territory + 4 Marik worlds planets
  • Tamar March - former Bone, Trellshire, and Tamar Theatersref [2]:
  • Skye March - the Federation of Skye + captured FWL planets [2]:
  • Tamarind March - former Ford and Cavanaugh Theaters [2]:
  • Periphery March - former Timbuktu and Main Street Theaters [2]:
  • Donegal March - the core of the Lyran Commonwealth [2]:
