The Unchained Stars
Once the Royal Citizens Militia, it has been stripped to the barebones. The Militia has been slowly reduced in stature and equipment. Under the sole control of the Parliament, the Militia has always been a part-time reserve force of citizen soldiers and pilots. Now the Regent has stripped the ability of the Parliament to active the Militia and some believe it will be soon when he places it under his authority. The Skypatrol of the Parliamentary Militia is made up of a number of squadrons that operate the venerable Celux-27 Ramwing Interceptor. An indigenous design once produced by the factories of Ord Cestus, its production was ceased once the Advent took over and the Ord Cestus corporate factories were nationalized by the Empire. The Skypatrol consists of four active squadrons scattered across the planet in “flights”. Each flight is six to eight planes and their supporting crews. Two to three flights make up the various squadrons. Pilots are part-time but regularly fly and take part in training.
