History[edit]

The Wotan Tamar March Militia (usually known as the Wotan TMM) was a Regimental Combat Team in service to the united Federated Commonwealth.

Formation[edit]

The Wotan TMM was formed sometime after the War of 3039, during the full integration of the Armed Forces of the Federated Commonwealth.[1] By 3050, the Wotan TMM was still of green quality. They were based on their homeworld of Wotan in the newly formed Tamar March, and were commanded by Leftenant General Ansel Cabrillo.[2]

Clan Invasion[edit]

When the Clan Invasion struck in 3050, Wotan soon became the fall-back spot for the 12th Star Guards. Where the prestigious mercenary command had once numbered four regiments, less than a regiments' worth of troops had made it to Wotan to regroup. These joined the Wotan TMM in defending the planet when Clan Jade Falcon's Gyrfalcon Galaxy attacked in June. Also defending Wotan was surviving conventional elements of the Steelton Defense Brigade, who had evacuated Steelton along with the survivors of the Guards' first regiment. The mercenaries employed quick, small unit raids to keep the Clan invaders off-balance, hoping to buy time. This strategy eventually failed when the Guards' commander was killed by an airstrike. The mercenaries were ultimately hunted down and eliminated. Even with the Twelfth Guards buying them time, the Wotan TMM was completely unprepared for the skill and weapons employed by the Falcons, and were quickly and easily destroyed. Wotan fell into the Jade Falcon talons.[3]

Officers[edit]

The Wotan TMM was commanded by Leftenant General Ansel Cabrillo at the time of its destruction.[2]
