During the First Succession War the students and staff of the Academy withstood and even repelled three different attacks by the 3rd Sword of Light. At that time the school had approximately six regiments of students in training. Over the course of the Succession Wars the enrollment dropped until in 3025 the Academy could only graduate approximately eighty students a year, divided evenly among MechWarriors, AeroSpace Pilots, armor commanders and infantry officers.
For a small academy, privately run and financed, Sakhara Academy turns about perfect soldiers. The cadets of the institution are the children of former graduates, and sometimes entire generations of a family go at it. The academy has access to sophisticated equipment through gifts of private corporations. The payments for the privilege to studying at the academy and financial support from former graduates save the existence at the future.
In 3079 Sakhara Academy continued to train the MechWarriors, AeroSpace Pilots, and armor and infantry officers it was known for, but also added a new course to train officers to command Battle Armor units.
The entrance is reserved for richest families or how have considerable political influence. The community of former and actual members form a close circle, they see themselves as a elite. For example, when a student have problems the other cadets watch him and help him.
