Unit BriefEdit

The Dar-es-Salaam is a regional second-line military RCT formation used to protected the Steiner Space region of Cavanaugh II Theater.

HistoryEdit

Early YearsEdit

The unit was founded 3039, as part of the Federated Commonwealth created regional mini-Regimental Combat Teams.[1] The unit was originally known as the Dar-es-Salaam TMM, part of the Tamarind March regional defense force assigned to the Dar-es-Salaam Command.[2]

It became part of the Cavanaugh II's three Militia RCT defense force, the Dar-es-Salaam is stationed on its name sake. The unit had not seen much action since its inception. Largely a pro-Loyalist unit by time the Lyran Allance was formed, had drew half its number from the name-sake's worlds population.[3]

FedCom Civil WarEdit

During the FedCom Civil War's Third Wave in July 3064, the militia fought against elements of the Allies' Outland Legion. The Legion forces on Dar-es-Salaam received considerable damaged before forcing quit the planet while trying to trap Prince Victor Steiner-Davion.[4] The battle with allies had costed the Militia's its commanding officer, Colonel Hubble. He was replaced by less regliously tolerant Aerospace Wing's commander.[5]
