The Sirius Coalition Revolutionary Army is the modern day arm of the original Coalition of the Sol sector
The Sirius Coalition Revolutionary Army, or SCRA for short, were originally formed by the descendants of Coalition spies and saboteurs aboard the Alliance sleepers. It is suspected that they may have been involved in the sabotage of the Hispania. There are also rumors that two Coalition sleeper-ship style vessels arrived in Sirius sometime in the last one hundred years, and their numbers joined together with the saboteurs, to form the force known today as the SCRA.
Today, they have begun to rise as a fledgling nation with a comparatively small but extremely efficient military, under the auspices of the somewhat insane, yet apparently competent, Bretonian ex-pat, Grand Admiral James McIntosh. McIntosh was not the original leader of the SCRA, but several years ago, after an extremely bloody revolution, resulting from the attempts of his superiors to sign a peace treaty with the Alliance, McIntosh took power and begin a campaign of relentless violence on anyone he perceived as an enemy. McIntosh is known to never allow himself into a situation where he could be killed or captured, believing in his megalomania that the only thing keeping the Coalition from faltering is his own will and body. He is also rumored to have been enhanced by the Phantoms and other means beyond normal human levels, and it is believed he will live well into the next century.
Under his terrifying leadership, supported by a core of less insane, more reliable officers and pilots, the SCRA aims to violently bring about a Communist revolution in Sirius. Although their population is small, estimated at being under one million total, the SCRA boasts a 60% involvement in the Military arm, that is, at least 60% of their total population is actively involved in the war effort. The remainder is largely concerned with the manufacture of munitions and ships, as well as common items like food, drinking water, and clothing.
Interestingly, whilst being recorded as being cold and clinically ruthless in many cases, the SCRA are known for not firing upon civilian targets unless fired upon first. This is believed to be an indicator that they do indeed see themselves as saviors of the the people, rather than simple terrorists. However, any who have run afoul of them for whatever reason will know that they neither forgive nor forget, as the SCRA will always avenge themselves, even if it is neither practical nor militarily feasible.
The SCRA are equipped almost entirely with equipment produced in Omega 52. Their snubfighters include the Partisan light fighter, the Revolution bomber, and the Insurgent VHF. Their six-man Gunboat is the Storm Class, and their largest Coalition-Specific vessel is the Typhoon class Destroyer. They were also aided in constructing an Osiris by Order techs in exchange for military aid against the Slomon K'Hara, Bounty Hunters and Liberty forces, whilst another Osiris defected to them from the Corsair Brotherhood.
The SCRA are commonly known as possibly the best snubfighter jocks in the sector, constantly winning battle after battle using strange-looking and stranger-flying whist terribly overwhelmed. Commodore Adrian "Ares" o Jovem, the leader of the SCRA's fighter corps, is a former Corsair, who flies with a mechanical left arm, and something of a bad attitude. The SCRA's fighter corps is divided into Red Squadron and Gold Wing, the elitists and the rest. Competition from Gold Wing to enter the ranks of Red are brutal, and frequently fatal, as the SCRA doesn't believe in using training ammunition for its elite Squadron's entrance exam.
Things began to shift in the Coalition’s upper echelons with the arrival of a new breed of Coalition officers such as Alvin Katz, Ben Warner, Alexi Karchov and Angie Broch. Eager to stamp a new brand of Coalition politics and policy upon Sirius they launched audacious campaigns against the enemy.
Ben Warner’s LRF, renown as a thorn in Liberty’s side. Angie Broch’s dramatic defection from a life of piracy, finding a life and a cause worth fighting for. Each of them taking a hold of the Coalition’s worn battle standard and hoisting it aloft again.
Through the unforgettable events of the Ontario elections, Alvin Katz a former SCRA officer and Commissar was catapulted into the realm of Coalition Politics assuming the leadership of the Coalition’s civilian government and rising to the position of Premier of the Coalition, becoming the third Great Leader of the Coalition when McIntosh’s ill health rendered him incapable of carrying on the cause at least for the time being and thus was placed into stasis until a cure could be found for his ailment in a specially designed facility designed for the sole purpose of containing and preserving the Grand Admiral's body.
Under his dynamic guidance the Coalition has risen again to a position as a formidable enemy of the former Alliance houses, an economic power-house independent of the corruption that plagues the Sirius Corporations, and a military might that vanquishes its enemies through weight of skill, trumping force of arms each and every time with well thought out tactics and battle tested strategies.
The Revolution draws even closer to a reality.
