Sol Central Government Army

From Baystation
SCGA Insignia

The Sol Central Government Army is the SCG's main land force. The Army is responsible for handling any ground conflicts and many peacekeeping missions that the SCG may be engaged in. Smaller than the SCG Fleet, with only a partial full-time component, much of the Army is composed of reservists and, in times of large scale war, is authorized to draft and integrate the regular Planetary Defence Forces (PDFs) in order to be able to scale up their military as-required. While not as famous or as glamorous as the Fleet, the Army is never the less a respected part of the military, though one which is often looked down on by the Fleet because of their reliance on reservists.


  • 2230: The Sol Central Government Army is established (along with the rest of the Sol Central Government) from the reorganisation of the Army forces of the former Terran Commonwealth, forming the basis of the new SCG DF Army. Unlike the Fleet however, it does not fully combine. Instead, a small standing force is established, while the rest of the various planets armies go on to form their Planetary Defence Forces (PDF's).
  • 2235: The SCG Army undergoes its bi-annual joint military exercise in Victor's Star. What seems to be an accident kills then Field Marshal Barnabas Kowalski.
  • 2294: Elements of the 1st Infantry Division are deployed to Gaia on a peacekeeping mission as it votes to join the SCG. Colonel Louis Montgomery is in charge of Peacekeeping operations.
  • 2294: The Gaia Conflict begins, and the SCG Army detachment on Gaia is caught by surprise. They are saved only by the fortunate arrival of manpower and supplies from the First Fleet. Smaller Army detachments across now occupied systems surrender.
  • 2295: The Army begins full mobilisation and absorbs a number of planetary PDF's. Reservists are called up.
  • 2296: The Army lands on Gaia.
  • 2297: The Gaia Conflict ends in a stalemate with neither side being in a position to continue. the Army demobilises and its attached PDF's return home. Large portions of regulars remain on Gaia, occupying the DMZ line.
