JMF: Joint Military Forces, the Armed Forces of the Outer Colonies
JMFAS: JMF Attack Squadron
JMFN: JMF Navy
JMFI: JMF Infantry-used to be known as the Colonial Marine Corps
"Paradise Planet": JMF basic indoctrination planet.
All Navy, Infantry, and pilot initial Basic training. Also has
flight schools, medical training, industrial facilities-but limited
when compared to the rest of the Outer Colonies. It's Earth-sized,
but lies closer to it's sun. Twin moons; military facilities on
each. High humidity and temperature. One major continent with
numerous small islands in shallow seas. Infamous for it's morning,
afternoon, and evening fleas that make marches hell.
Outer Colonies: Settled by Terrans for over 120. They were
basically allowed to
develop on their own for the past 70 years. They began training
their own military and building their own fleets. But, not fully
independent until after the Ideoclan War. A republic of some 13
Ideoclan: A combined religious-scientific people group.
"The enemy". Residing on a single planet that was basically
harsh and mountainous. Vast inner caverns allowed them to have
unobserved development of their forces. Unrestrained cloning allowed
for an enormous population. A pathological hatred of everyone
except their own. They are a combination of the most fanatical
zealots throughout history, a famous historian called them the
children of Wafen SS fathers with suicide-bomber mothers. Their
religion was installed at infancy, leading to the fact that the
Ideoclan never surrendered and never took prisoners. A fact we
learned the hard way up to the climatic battle at Earth, though
at Mars the conflict became just a matter of time.
Ideoclan War: Started with the surprise attack of the Ideoclan
on the outskirts of the Solar System. The Battlecarriers Washington,
New York, and the Pennsylvania, which were on guard duty at Neptune
were totally destroyed. The Ideoclan and their demand for surrender
of the Earth held all planets from Neptune to the outskirts of
Earth. The call went out, and the Outer Colonies declared war
on the Ideoclan. Starting slowly and building up, the JMF went
from planet to planet, starting with the initial base at Pluto
and attacking the forces of the Ideoclan. JMFAS units would take
out the Ideoclan fighter craft and pave the way for the Fleet
and for the JMFI, who would fight on the planets or moons if there
were land forces to contend with. The conflict was a total of
20-long months, concluding with the battle at Earth.
Carriers: Converted freighters used by the JMF for the
initial invasions. Though slow and underpowered, they provided
much-needed firepower and support until the advent of the Super
Battlecarriers, the "Dreadnought" class. But even then,
the remaining and surviving carriers fought up even to the battle
Battlecarriers: Earth's capital ships. They are the size
of three Nimmitz-class 20th century carriers. They have various
compliments of squadrons; recon, attack, troop-support, and bombers(heavy
Super Battlecarriers: The creme-de-le-creme of carrier
design. These monsters are both fast and extremely well armored.
Initially thought of by the JMF 20 years before the Ideoclan War,
only mock-ups were made. The weapons alone are worth ten Battlecariers,
with numerous compliments of squadrons and support craft. They
are about the size of ten Nimmitz-class carriers laid end-to-end.
First seen at the Grand Battle of Mars. The JMFNS Dreadnought
was the first. The 357th was assigned to the JMFNS Victory after
the loss of their carrier, the Lexington at the end of the Battle
of Jupiter's Moons.
Auxiliary Craft: "AC's" Troop transports, medical
evacuation craft, etc.
M-26: Combined pulse-rifle, grenade launcher, flame thrower.
M2111: Hand pistol, fires an explosive charged round, aka
FTX: Field Training Exercise
MRE: Meal, Ready to Eat
The JMFAS are typically organized into three wings, with a wing
leader, wingman, and wing pilots per each wing. Depending on how
much the squadron has suffered in combat, a fully combat-ready
squadron may have from 10 to 15 members. In the early stages of
the Ideoclan War, many JMFAS units were totally eliminated by
the Ideoclan, with perhaps 1 or 2 surviving pilots and these squadrons
were dissolved and the members absorbed into another squadron.
