History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

The First New Avalon Military Academy Training Battalion or First NAMA was one of three regiments of troops mustered from the cadet classes of the New Avalon Military Academy during the First Succession War. Formed at some point after 2786, the First saw combat on at least one world during the War.[1]

Clan Invasion[edit]

As of 3050, the 1st NAIS Cadet Cadre was based on its homeworld Exeter.[2]

By 3054, they had been relocated to Schedar.[3]

Civil War[edit]

During the FedCom Civil War, the 1st NAIS was the garrison of Tikonov. When it became clear that their loyalties are pro-Victor, Katherine Steiner-Davion ordered the attack of the 15th Deneb Light Cavalry. The Valexa CMM came to aid the 1st NAIS, but they were still outmatched. Later, in 3064, the pro-Katherine 3rd Republican Guards also arrived on Tikonov. In early 3065 Victor's task-force attacked Tikonov, saving the remains of the 1st NAIS.[4]

Later, when Victor's forces had to retreat, the 1st NAIS, the Valexa militia and the 6th Crucis Lancers stayed on Tikonov to hold out, until the offensive had gained new momentum. The 1st NAIS joined with Victor's forces for the final battle on New Avalon, attacking Avalon City and taking losses from an artillery strike by the 299th Division.[5]

Jihad[edit]

In 3078 Princess-Regent Yvonne Steiner-Davion signed the Academy Appropriations War Powers Act. This act conscripted the surviving members of the Training Cadre into the AFFS. As a result, the First Cadre was disbanded in 3078 and integrated into the Davion Brigade of Guards. The future of the Cadre is unknown, but if reconstituted it will likely follow the LCT model.[6]

The First NAIS Cadet Cadre was reformed in 3085. The new cadre unit found itself undergoing a shift in tactics. Where it formerly had only light and medium 'Mechs, the First Cadre now employs cavalry tactics employed by any appropriate unit, regardless of weight class. These tactics focus primarily on the hit and run tactics used by the defenders of New Avalon. The battle armor used by the First Cadre is primarily of heavy and assault classes. Once the First Cadre was formed, it deployed to Kathil where its student-soldiers mirrored the Davion Heavy Guards RCT.[7]
