Intro

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.

History

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 (4.86 mod The Exiles)

Massive attack and invasion by the GRN, began a new epoch in the SMP pages . 816 years in battles around Lanquedoc, and after breaking in Orkney, there was a significant loss of members. The principal force SMP, dormant Council reports, which proved to be totally incorrect about the strength GRN, was on his mercenary tasks discarded on all Sirius. Galia units consisted mainly of under-trained recruits and a few senior officers who were responsible for training them, and with several officers from the transport unit. All in all, with 210 members of the SMP then, could not do anything special. Faced with the invasion, Galia SMP command order withdrawal of property, part of personnel, and all documentation, as part of the forces, led by a Lieutenant Dave LeRoy, (brother of Sirius Group leader Emma LeRoy) is placed under the command of the Third Battalion of the Council forces. Soon units SMP is known for his brutal attacks on the GRN, concealed activities in the units and ships GRN, as well as the massive attacks on merchant fleet forces who have assisted the GRN and the crown. Sometimes not choosing targets and resources of action, the losses inflicted on the civilian population, they have not passed a lot of sympathy from the Government Council. Units of SMP, which joined the refugees, soon enable an office on the planet Toulouse. Faced with a lack of members, the commander of the transport unit sergeant Merowing, begins to carry out recruitment among the civilian population. as time went on, the popularity of SMP is becoming 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 a new order in the ranks of SMP. With the opening of training camp, military drill in the reinforcing structure of the chain of command, quality supplies, and ongoing news about successes and brutality of the forces in the field. became for greater part of refugees is very popular. But this popularity was not much liked the government Council. Military leadership Council Army, believed that for threaten, fearing for their positions. constant undermining of the command structure and activity to certain politicians, that portion of Army Council has tried to demystify the SMP in the eyes of the government. Dave LeRoy, at a meeting with Sergeant Merowing, orders several of his officers, to find any way to Galia house, wishing to avoid any incident, and to provide continuing the fight against the Crown. after 2 months, disguised as the crew of research vessel, agents SMP are managed to establish contacts with the Maquise units in Mazagran Depot and Grenoble Depot. By finding a common language with the Maquise, DaveLeRoy without waiting, quietly commanded transfer of the entire camp for recruitment 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 is no longer found on the planet. Dave LeRoy, comes before the command of the Third Battalion, claiming that the whole SMP operating unit, is transferred to a new unit. Thinking to find it easier to demystify the SMP, the command allows the creation of an independent unit, and submit the command as a guerrilla troop SMP. But the plan and the events were different from their expectations. SMP. again independent, signed a contract with the Government Council about the supply ships and weapons, and sets a course towards Galia House. During that time, Sirius unit, through secret channels, set up a secret fund that serves for needs of SMP in Galia, currently in that account is about 2 Bill sc With the support of his sister, and with the already established network of suppliers, Dave and SMP, opening a new camp for recruiting, creating almost brotherly relationship with The Maquise.

Present day in SMP

Societe Militaire Privee is currently divided into two separative unit, Galia SMP and SMP Mercenary Unit. a consistent both 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, tactical distribution of Maquise base, hidden from the public, spread are guerrilla warfare against GRN and the Crown and its supporters. with time Galia units and officers of the Maquise commenced the cooperative command, based on mutual trust, shared recruitment centers, technical and tactical information obtained in the field. Sirius unit, are located of any dangerous areas, offering its services to interested parties, the secret remains as donors campaigns in Galia.

Galia SMP:

Galia- With the structural partition and active common in the action, SMP and The Maquis before the end of 816 years,signed together agreement on mutual cooperation and combat operations. The contract contained a tactical cooperation on technical exchange, common training, a unique chain of command, sharing base, depot, resources and engineering support. Purpose of facilitating mutual understanding, with the blessing of SMP HQ, Galia unit takes identification from The Maquis, as a major and placing their command post at Mazagran Depot,together with training camp. Also in the contract has come to change the names of SMP in Societe Militaire Patriot. For SMP striking unit, set command post operations Grenoble Depot, as a starting point for guerrilla attacks. While the transport wing is set on the Planet Marne.

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!

Ships

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, are flying multiple models.
