Flight of the Rising Phoenix
After Clan Ghost Bear’s invasion of Alshain, the military district of Alshain ceased to exist. Remaining worlds not under the control of the Clans were divided between the Benjamin District and the Pesht District. The Pesht District contained many more strategic industrial assets, but the Benjamin district is poised in direct line of two Clan territories. The Ghost Bear Dominion has stalled their conquest for the moment, but Clan Wolf still maintains a highly aggressive stance towards the Draconis Combine. The imminent threat from Clan Wolf and even Clan Hell’s Horses has lead to a build up of military strength in the Buckminster Prefecture.
The Benjamin Military District has become the defacto proving ground for new military doctrine. The newest shift in Combine military policy has been to place a good portion of veteran military assets on JumpShips and WarShips so that at any time at least one battalion of Mechs, infantry, and vehicles can be deployed anywhere within the prefecture within 3-5 days. Planets still maintain their garrisons, some of which are sizable, but the majority of experienced troops are able to deploy at a moments notice thus insuring that reinforcements are never far away.
