A mercenary is a professional soldier hired by a foreign army, as opposed to a soldier enlisted in the armed forces of the sovereign state of which he is a citizen. He takes part in armed conflict on many different scales, and is "motivated to take part in the hostilities essentially by the desire for private gain and, in fact, is promised, by or on behalf of a party to the conflict, material compensation substantially in excess of that promised or paid to combatants of similar ranks and functions in the armed forces of that Party".

The Société Militaire Privée (SMP) provides specialized expertise or services of a military nature, sometimes called or classified as mercenaries ("soldiers for hire"). The services and expertise cover those typically found in governmental military or police forces, but most often on a smaller scale. While the SMP often provide services to train or supplement official armed forces in service of governments, they are also employed by unlawful groups.

They are licensed by the Gallic Council and contracted by foreign governments to train soldiers and to reorganize elite modern military forces. Having reached one billion credits in their bank account, the SMP has now decided to broaden their horizons.

Headquartered on Reunion base in Orkney, the SMP is now actively looking to obtain profitable contracts in Kusari, the Taus or Bretonia. However, since Council forces are more than adequate at handling the civil war in Gallia, the SMP has recalled most of their pilots and is ready to take any contracts on the Sirius market.


The soldiers of Société Militaire Privée have their roots in Gallia, especially on planet Marne. To understand the SMP soldiers, we first have to know something about the situation that was on Marne at the beginning of the colonization. It was a densely populated industrial world that was holding more than three quarters of all Gallic Border Worlds population. Discovered in 506 A.S. by a Gallic expedition sent from Burgundy, this planet has immediately attracted attention of authorities and corporations. Atmosphere was suitable for colonization, and planet's crust appeared to be rich in oil and metal ores. EFL Oil & Machinery, Gallic Metal Service, and a number of other companies from the Core Systems have all participated in building up the industrial infrastructure. But when millions of workers were transported to Marne in 615-650 A.S., they didn't find the perfect living conditions and beautiful cities that they were promised. Instead, vast cities consisted of similar blocks of flats and were located right next to plants and factories: there were few policemen to stop the crime, almost no social services, and even no fresh air because of massive and uncontrolled pollution. On some distance from the cities, small towns were built to house higher-class settlers. Those towns were heavily guarded by Police and Société Militaire Privée against the crime that was increasing steadily since the colonization had started.

When the rebelion started, in 794 A.S. the SMP knew that this would be the beginning of a civil war so they ended their contracts with the “royals”. in 801 A.S. In 801 A.S. after years of bloody fighting, the whole planet was under control of the Council. The SMP forces were a land combat force of the Council and played an important role in the liberation of Marne.

The SMP took part in all the ground battles in the war. Another one of these fights was the attack on Nimes Station. The Council attempted to use the same tactic that failed with Gap Station. This time, however, previous mistakes were taken into account. The Council made use of inside support from civilians loyal to its cause and called for SMP to breach the station. While Council fleets were stationed next to Remoulins' wreck and Nimes was preparing for an assault from space, a group of Council special operatives (including SMP soldiers) breached the station through a maintenance airlock that was left unguarded. Before local Police and Army guards could organize any resistance, the Council took over control of the station's life support, computer mainframes, internal and external defensive systems.

The Council offensive on Planet Quillan was the second planetary operation of the war. Capturing the planet was vital for the final success in breaching the mine field defenses. Breaching planetary defenses was a relatively easy task. However, after Council and SMP ground forces landed on the planet in the end of 815 A.S., they discovered that a Gallic army of 90,000 was stationed on the planet and prepared to defend its settlements and factories. Outnumbered, the Council forces had to fortify their positions and prepare for a lengthy fight for the planet's surface. More Council troops landed on Quillan, increasing the numbers of Council corps on the planet to 95,000. The Council soldiers were mostly unemployed Marne workers, badly armed and trained. They would be no match for Gallic Army in open combat. However, SMP soldiers infiltrated local settlements and convinced the workers to rebel against the Royal forces. The unrest was growing and soon, rebelions started simultaneously in many settlements. Overtaking settlements one by one, the Council slowly advanced, and in the beginning of 817 A.S. the remaining Gallic Army soldiers were scattered and forced to surrender.

In the end of 816 A.S., the Council finally gathered a large fleet to attack Montpellier Guard Station. This was the first space operation that SMP took part. Equiped with Council ships, the SMP were taking heavy looses and had to retreat but the more experienced Council pilots continued the fight. For several weeks, fighting next to Montpellier continued; at the same time, the Navy advanced from Dauphine and breached the Council's defenses near the Jump Gate. The SMP were sent to intercept them. Before the Navy fleet reached the main battle, it suffered some loses from SMP raids. But this wasn’t enough to make them to fall back. It was too late to retreat at this point, and despite very heavy casualties, the Council advanced to the mine field, destroying numerous weapon platforms, smaller supplementary mine fields, and hundreds of enemy ships. A large part of Montpellier Guard Station itself was destroyed in a suicide attack by a Council battleship packed with thermonuclear explosives, with most station defenders killed in the explosion or shortly afterwards. The path to the mines was now clear, and Council moved forward to destroy the mines and create a large corridor that would allow all ships, even the largest ones, to pass through without being at risk of mine explosions. After the path was ready, the Council started to build a new space station on the other side, bearing a symbolic name of Reunion. For helping the Council forces in the war, SMP obtained 2 docking bays on Reunion Base. Their main Headquarters remains on planet Quillan. The SMP started a training program for space combat because most of the soldiers were trained only for ground ops.

Now, the Société Militaire Privée is an elite group of land and space fighters that are looking for profit. While they are fighting for they contractors, they don’t forget their roots and help the Council in the fight against the Gallic Royal Navy.

SMP in 816. years

Massive attack and invasion by the GRN began a new epoch in SMP pages. We had significant loss of members in battles in Languedoc in 816 year and after GRN break in Orkney. Dormant Council reports about GRN strenght that were principal force of SMP turned out to be totally incorrect and all mercenery tasks were discarded in all Sirius. Gallia units were consisted mainly of new recruits who were responsibly trained by a few senior officers, and of several officers from the transport unit. All in all, 210 members of the SMP in that time couldn't do anything special. Faced with the invasion, Gallia SMP command ordered withdrawal of property, part of personnel and all documentation, as part of the force led by Lieutenant Dave LeRoy (brother of Sirius Group leader Emma LeRoy) is placed under the command of the Third Battalion of the Council forces. Soon SMP units were known for their brutal attacks on GRN, concealed activities in units and ships of GRN, as well as massive attacks on merchant fleet forces who were assisting the GRN and the Gallic Crown. Sometimes they were not choosing targets and resources of action so the losses inflicted civilian population, that resulted in reduction in sympathy from the Council Government. SMP units who joined the refugees enabled an office on the Planet Toulouse. Faced with a lack of members, the commander of the transport unit sergeant Merowing began to carry out recruitment among the civilian population. As time went on, the popularity of SMP has become increasingly higher among soldiers of Council and among the civilian population. Massive influx of high-quality recruits accelerated production and better ships, giving the picture of new order in ranks of SMP. With opening of training camp, military drill in reinforced structure of the chain of command, quality supplies, and ongoing news about successes and brutality of the forces on the field, SMP became very popular for greater part of refugees. But this popularity was not liked by the government of Council. Council Forces military leadership considered that as threaten, and started to fear for their positions. SMP was under constant undermining of the command structure and activities of certain politicians, ortion of Council Forces has tried to demystify the SMP in the eyes of the government. At meeting with Sergeant Merowing, Dave LeRoy ordered to several of his officers to find any way to Gallia house, as well to avoid any incident and provide continuation of the fight against the Gallic Crown. After 2 months SMP agents, disguised as a crew on research vessel, managed to establish contacts with The Maquis units of Mazagran Depot and Grenoble Depot. After finding a common language with the Maquis, DaveLeRoy quitely and without waiting,commanded transfer of the entire recruitment camp and entire archive from the Planet Toulouse to Grenoble Depot. Operation was equally shrouded in a mask that no one realized what it is, simply almost overnight SMP was no longer found on the planet. Dave LeRoy had arrived before the command of the Third Battalion and was claiming that the whole SMP strike unit had been transferred to a new unit. In order to find easier way to demystify the SMP, the command allowed the creation of an independent unit and submited the command as a guerrilla troop SMP. But the plan and events were different from their expectations. SMP, who was independent again, signed a contract with the Council about the supply ships and weapons, and set a course towards Gallia House. During that time Sirius unit set up through secret channels a secret bank that will serve for supplies of SMP in Gallia. Currently on that account is about 2 Bill sc. With support of Emma LeRoy and with already established network of suppliers, Dave and SMP opened a new recruitment camp and created almost brotherly relationship with The Maquis.

Present day in SMP

Grenoble Depot Militaire Wing HQ

Societe Militaire Patriot is currently divided into four (4) Wings : Militaire, Transport, Explorer and Mercenary, consistent with their goals from establishment. Gallia Unit with its radical action has taken part in Gallic Liberation Movement, in large part credited to their contacts with The Maquis and the united campaigns. Using resources and tactical distribution of Maquis base, hidden from the public, guerrilla warfare are spread against GRN, the Crown and its supporters. SMP and Maquis while were working together inevitably began to pick their actions and bloody attacks on royalist, faced each other. Initially in the minority, SMP quickly expanded their lines, every day becoming larger. Thanks to strict military hierarchy and instructed fighting from mercenary days they showed an increasing appetite, first on small merchant ships and later no fear to attack heavily armed formations of the GRN. The Maquis leadership, that was divided into groups by base, gradually became aware of the power provided by the SMP, started all over to join and create a common action with the SMP. With time SMP units and Leaders of the Maquis commenced the cooperative command based on mutual trust, shared recruitment centers, technical and tactical information obtained in the field. Mercenary units are located in every dangerous areas, they offer their services to interested parties, staying like secret donors to campaigns in Gallia.

Gallic SMP:

Planet Marne Transport Wing HQ


With the structural partition and active common in action, SMP and The Maquis signed together agreement on mutual cooperation and combat operations before the end of 816 year. The contract contained a tactical cooperation on technical exchange, common training, a unique chain of command, sharing base, depots, resources and engineering support. On the other hand, Maquis leaders while were recognizing the only way they can survive in the fight against GRN, submitted leadership in the hands of SMP, presented Societe Militaire Patriot force as their representative in public eyes. In purpose of facilitating mutual understanding with bless of SMP HQ and Maquis Leaders , all four wings of SMP took identification (IFF/ID) from The Maquis as a major and placed their command post and training camp at Mazagran Depot. Also has come in change of names of SMP in Societe Militaire Patriot. As clubbing, represented a remarkable force that for a long worried the Crown and command of the GRN. SMP Military wing set command post operations at Grenoble Depot as a starting point for guerrilla attacks, while the Transport wing was set on the Planet Marne.


  • SMP's primary objective is to aid the Council in their fight against the Gallic Royal Navy;
  • SMP’s secondary objective is to gain power and money while working for any party in Sirius.This is why they created Mercenary wing;
  • The third objective is to expand their influence zone and explore unknown parts of Sirius. This is why they created the Private Military Explorers; a wing that is mostly used to search hiden bases of possible targets.

Interview with Frank Zacharie

Zoe Armelle from Le Conseil Tribune managed to obtain an interview with the Colonel of SMP.

Zoe: Greetings, Colonel.

Colonel: Greetings!

Z: Thank you for accepting this interview

C: Well, madame Armelle…

Z: Please, call me Zoe.

C: Alright, Zoe, I was saying that I’m the one that should thank you because this, what we do here is free publicity and a good way to inform people about our presence here and about our goals.

Z: Right… so how would you describe this company?

C: Our motto says it all: “Combat, explore, trade. You name it, we do it.”

Z: What about the people?

C: Our pilots are trained professionists. Our military wing is trained in ground ops and space ops. They are complete soldiers.

Z: What about the civilians?

C: They are not really civilians. They don’t have combat experience in space battles but they are the pilots of our trade and exploration wing.

Z: And what are you planning to do?

C: Well, we will continue to help the Council against the Royals and we will search for jobs in the rest of Sirius. We are looking for long time contracts.

Z: Do you know about the major conflicts in Sirius?

C: Not all of them but that’s why we have an exploration wing. I know about the Bretonian-Kusari war, about the Colonial-Bretonian war, about the Colonial-Outcast fights, about the Corsair-Outcast war and about the Corsair-Molly war… that’s about it… and there are some more minor conflicts but I don’t have the time to talk about all of them here.

Z: What do you know about the IMG?

C: Not much. Just that they have some shipyards that can build big ships and but they use old technology.

Z: What are the plans for the future?

C: We are looking forward in expanding all over Sirius but this will come in time. For now we’re looking for a good contractor.

Z: Thank you, Colonel!

The main ships used by SMP are old council models that have been replaced in their fleet.Can be found some Gallic Brigands ship, but rarely.Some members of SMP opted for ships from the gallic civilian line. Due to lack of oil in the other houses in Sirius, the SMP was forced to adopt Sirius civilian ships. The pilots were trained by the colonials in a flash training program and now, fly multiple models.
