Description:

[3062] Far from any hostile borders, the Mayetta DMM has become lazy and complacent. The unit rarely takes part in exercises and is considered borderline operational by the AFFC. Corruption is prevalent but despite attempts by the AFFC to “clean up” the Mayetta DMM, support for the Yalos family is too strong.

While Prince Victor was off fighting the Smoke Jaguars, rumor has it that Leftenant General Kirk Yalos set about establishing his own fief in the Draconis March. He engineered it so that his son, Jason, was rapidly promoted to command the militia, allowing him to retain influence in the unit while concentrating on political and economic matters.

The AFFC has considered disbanding the Militia but believe doing so would result in major casualties in the Mayetta DMM and any unit sent to enforce the order.

[3063] During the Civil War, Leftenant General Jason Yalos decided to side with the Allied forces, despite the fact that he and his unit had expressed their fanatical support for Katherine Steiner-Davion after her ascension to power. Yalos went as far as detaining Marshal Vonda DeGreer and her PDZ command staff, all apparent supporters of the Archon. Recognizing not only the value of Mayetta, but also the fact that it would likely become a target for the Archon’s forces, Baron Tancred Sandoval immediately led his Allied forces to Mayetta.

When he arrived on March 7 3063, he discovered that elements of the Bremond and Milligan DMMs had taken it upon themselves to hit Mayetta in concert, hoping to crush Yalos and his forces. While the Loyalist units had only been on-world or a few days, Yalos had already given up a third of the world to the invaders and had suffered heavy casualties and losses due to capture and desertion.

Over the course of a month of heavy fighting, the Allied forces inflicted heavy casualties on the opposing DMMs, though were likewise losing fighting strength in every battle. While he could keep the Loyalist DMM’s tied up for months, Baron Sandoval knew there were more important targets within the Federated Suns that his Allied troops could potentially take and hold - Sandoval force’s left Mayetta on the 14th April.

General Yalos’ Mayetta DMM held for another 2 weeks prior to crushed in a four hour battle for Raabel Pass, one of just three thoroughfares through the Ren Kalen Mountains, standing to the southwest of the Goran Moraines and the Tuskange Depression.

General Samprini, commander of the loyalist force, took Yalos prisoner at the end of the fight. General Yalos stood trial for crimes against the Federated Commonwealth and for the murder of Marshal DeGreer and two dozen of her senior officers – executed in the week following Baron Sandoval’s retreat – and was himself imprisoned until the end of the Civil War.
