History[edit]

In January 3025 the Raman Draconis March Militia was stationed on Deshler to reinforce the 4th Davion Guards. They faced Wolf's Dragoons Gamma Regiment at Valerian Bay. They were forced to withdraw.[1]

The Raman Draconis March Militia (along with the Bremond Draconis March Militia) arrived on Galtor III in late August 3025 to reinforce the 33rd Avalon Hussars and 12th Vegan Rangers. There they faced off against the 17th Benjamin Regulars and the 5th Galedon Regulars. The Combine units had the Raman DMM trapped, but a quick strike by the Bremond DMM allowed the two March Militia units to join forces and escape.[2] Later the Raman DMM would face the 17th Benjamin Regulars and the 1st Amphigean Light Assault Group, and though they fought valiantly, the Raman DMM was destroyed.[3]

As the Raman DMM was newly rebuilt, they didn't participate in the Fourth Succession War's offensive strikes.[4] They did, however, defend Klathandu IV from the 9th Benjamin Regulars, sustaining heavy losses but pinning the Ninth Benjamin in place long enough for the 1st FedCom RCT to arrive and break the siege.[5] Many worlds taken by the Draconis Combine during the Fourth Succession War were originally a part of the Raman PDZ. As a result, the Raman DMM was constantly agitating for an attack on the Combine. Their many skirmishes gave them a high amount of captured DCMS equipment.[6]

During the FedCom Civil War, most of the Raman DMM remained on Raman as both a strategic reserve for the Draconis March forces attacking the Combine and to discourage a Combine counterattack. A single brigade was assigned to Breed briefly, but was recalled when Tancred Sandoval made peace with the Draconis Combine.[7]

The Raman DMM spent most of the Jihad protecting their homeworld and neighboring systems. This meant that they came through the Jihad relatively intact. In fact their greatest losses will be due to the reassignment of troops and equipment to rebuild other units. This will also reduce the Raman DMM to a Light Combat Team formation, like the other units in the March Militias.[8]

In 3085 the unit had built up and was only ten percent below its requested strength.[9]

Officers[edit]

As of 3025 the commanding officer was Major General Conroy Baden-Powell[10] . He was still commanding the Raman DMM in 3028.[11]

As of 3050 to 3067 the commanding officer was Leftenant General Renée Mazner[12][13] , she was promoted to Major General in 3067.[6][14]

As of 3085 the commanding officer is Leftenant General Nicholas Bellew.[15]

Tactics[edit]

The Raman DMM hoped to use their captured DCMS equipment to sow confusion among Combine forces.[16]
