[edit] History

They were the militia of New Syrtis and as such, a traditional, beloved unit of the Capellan March.

In 3062 they were responsible not only for the security of New Syrtis, but also the garrison of Wernke system, home to Kallon Industries. As a result the New Syrtis CMM was slightly oversized compared to its fellow Capellan March Militia regiments and approximately one third of its forces could be found in Wernke.[1] They were officially based on Kathil in 3062.[2]

During the FedCom Civil War they took part in the fighting on New Syrtis, when the planet was invaded by pro-Katherine-forces. In February 3066, the unit tried to do her Duke George Hasek a favor, by wiping out the remains of the 11th Avalon Hussars. They acted alone, to present this victory as a surprise. However, they fell into a trap and were destroyed as a unit by the 11th Avalon Hussars and the 4th Donegal Guards. Only a few survived.[3] These troops had engaged the Loyalists before by hitting their flanks.[4]

After the Civil War ended, the New Syrtis CMM was rapidly rebuilt by volunteers. Most of this civilian aid helped the conventional units attached to the 'Mech regiment, but the 'Mech unit was rebuilding more quickly than the AFFS High Command anticipated. During this time, the New Syrtis CMM also rebuilt and repaired damage to New Syrtis.[5]

The Jihad was rough on the Capellan March Militia units. The New Syrtis CMM was the only unit considered combat-worthy in 3085. The fact that the New Syrtis CMM was the first unit rebuilt after the Jihad might explain this. The unit was completely staffed by personnel before the equipment arrived. During this time the New Syrtis CMM's troops engaged in joint ground combat training. Infantrymen, MechWarriors, astechs, armor crews and every other trooper were included in this training. This led the New Syrtis CMM to have a high level of unit cohesion. These training efforts started in 3080 and continued through 3085 when the New Syrtis CMM Light Combat Team took the field.[6]

In 3139 elements of the New Syrtis CMM raided a CCAF training facility on Nihal. They lost a squad of Fusilier Battle Armor but were successful.[7]

[edit] Tactics

The subunits of these militia RCT uses prepared fortifications to pin the enemy in place, with the goal to use them to slowly tear down an opponent.[1]
