I say old chaps, getting a bit dusty in here, isn’t it?

It took 13 months to cover page 42. I guess we are pacing ourselves.

It's no fun being CGL's curent whipping (3145 era). I now know how Capellan fans felt during most of the BT history.

The FS has been in the sewer longer than the CC ever was. War of 3039, Lyran secession, Guerrero, Katherine's usurpation and FCCW, Jihad, Dark Age... Over a century in-universe, and more than half of the game's 35-year existence. I never met a single CC fan until the faction became the top dog. I'm not sure they're any different from the faux fans who show up wearing jerseys and caps after a team wins a championship even though they never wore them before that.

Calm down, old chap. By my count, we are only on page 26.

I knew plenty on here, prior to their dramatic elevation in fortunes.

Usually absolute characters all of them, and a select few I'd be less
charitable in describing :p

Hello by the way, one of my occasional flyby visits.  Oh and as to our
factions current difficulties, be resolute chaps.  Shattered Fortress
shows some delightful, moves for us in a better direction.  Battered
perhaps, but far from broken.  I'd hope the bright sunshine of
authorial fiat, would once again be tilting in our specific direction. 

We've sat in the shade, a touch longer than perhaps we deserved
no?

Indeed. It's past time for the FS to rise from the ashes!

Yes it will make for a great rising in the end!!!

I could have written this up north, but the intended audience I'd most like
to hear from would be here.  That and the quality of debate I've seen since
my return, hasn't been inspiring up there.

Revisiting Shattered Fortress, mention was made of the Davion Irregulars.

Small recently formed AFFS Combined Arms Battalions,  now this suggests
something is at work.  Not reformed units, but new ones.  Where they were
formed up, and with whom is not said.  But if we assume recent academy
grads, say evacuated NAIS/Albion students from New Avalon....that'd work
no?  Of course that's mere speculation.

But as for the facts, as best I recall there's at least seven of these units. 
Or at least numbered up to seven.  They were active in the defence of
Robinson, along with the liberation of some of the nine Draconis March
worlds.

Now for a theory.  These units sound very similar to WW2 German
formations, Kampfgruppe.  What we'd call today Battlegroups, the
historic example was an adhoc combined arms formation.  Sounds
similar yes?

A thought: How many dispossessed nobles with their personal guards are kicking about?

I'd imagine there'd be more than a few refugee nobles, there've been
mentions of evacuations of VIPs in the TROs.
