The newly discovered planet Carlac
Since the discovery of the Carlac System in the Prefsbelt Sector by Captain Oquan Tangin Bacca’s Deep Space Reconnaissance Fleet, AMC’s Diplomatic Corps, led by Prime Executor Nimm Proga, has been in active negotiations with the Grand Vizier of the Yarkora who were found to populate that planet.
As the Yarkora were not a space faring race, they were previously unknown to most of the Galaxy and their planet was found to be vastly underdeveloped because of a lack of off-world resources. As negotiations carried on, however, it became clear that their world was not as secluded as initially suspected as the Grand Vizier and his Ruling Council admitted that their planet had been overrun recently by off-world marauding bandits and groups of pirates, bounty hunters and big game hunting bands.
One industrious hunting enterprise had even made a business of importing many large and highly aggressive predators to seed the planet for highly profitable hunting expeditions. These creatures have now taken root and are self-populating many areas of the arid dessert and grassland regions of the planet. This has wrought considerable hardship to the native species as well as to the locale populace who are not used to fighting these non-native predators.

In a series of delicate negotiations, the Yarkora have agreed to allow AMC to establish a permanent military presence on Carlac through a Strategic Alliance Agreement with AMC now formalized and ratified as the Treaty of Prefsbelt. This will allow AMC’s Mobile Infantry to re-secure the planet under the control of the Yarkora Grand Vizier and his Ruling Council. It will also allow for a permanent planet wide training ground for AMC personnel to conduct combat and security training missions as new threats arrive on the planet and pockets of off-worlder resistance hold out against the military push from combined AMC and Yarkora forces. While AMC’s Military now holds sway over the planet, the Yarkora will maintain their political independence and will maintain sovereignty over their planet under this Strategic Alliance Agreement.

A large contingent of Yarkora have also decided to formally join AMC as now the Galaxy as a whole has been opened to their eyes and many now look to better their situation and seek their fortunes amongst our ranks. A Recruitment Center and Barracks has been established in the one major city which stands in the central region of the planet. That city is now under constant patrol by AMC Units to maintain law and order and to establish a standing AMC military presence as the newly created NPC Transport Center will certainly lead to a rapid influx of more off-worlders with potentially uncertain intentions.

The relatively hot and inhospitable climate of Carlac poses a minor threat to most non-native races who are not protected by thermal gear. Even the rugged and highly adaptable Consortium Powersuit does not protect its occupants from these conditions. These effects are minimal, however, and they are quite recoverable in short exposures to the environment. This circumstance, however, has led to a decision by AMC High Command to relegate most permanent duty assignments to AMC’s Mechanized Mobile Infantry Units as droids are immune to these thermal effects. Spartan-Class and Gladiator-Class Battle Droids patrol the city and surrounding terrain and Paladin-Class Destroyer Droids are at the ready to be deployed to heavy fighting hot-spots on the surface. AMC Mobile Infantry Legionnaires and Melee Fusiliers are also actively on patrol on the surface and in orbit to respond when needed and to conduct large scale operations across the planet as new military training operations begin to get underway.
The central region of the planet has been cleared of most hostiles after weeks of heavy fighting. These operations allowed Mobile Infantry Commanders to work out complicated tactical maneuvers with their assigned Mechanized Units and they again proved the value and battle capabilities of both the Spartan and the Gladiator-Class Battle Droids in front line combat operations.

The areas of the planet that have been cleared of hostiles are now under constant patrol by AMC Recon Probe Droids. T-1 and T-2 Tactical Recon Probe Droids as well as the newly released K-X12 Tactical Recon Probe Droid have been deployed across the surface to help detect new hostile threats and aid in their destruction. The use of these droids has vastly improved the visual capabilities of AMC Sensors and Scanner Equipment through the use of sensor sharing and in the relaying of tactical information to the AMC forces on the ground, in vehicles and in the air. This has truly allowed for combined and coordinated deployment of troops to re-establish security in any given area where new threats are detected. The only regions in which this network of probe droids has not been established is in the still untamed outer rim of the planet where bandits fleeing from the central regions of the planet have established strongholds and bitter fighting is still ongoing. AMC High Command has relegated those mopping up operations to the native Yarkora Forces as more than 90% of the planet has been brought back under control and is now firmly held and patrolled by AMC’s Military.
This successfully negotiated Alliance is yet another triumphant campaign by AMC’s Diplomatic Corps. Under the direction of the Triumvirate Council, the Prime Executor has worked tirelessly to secure Non-Aggression Pacts with nearly all of AMC’s major Galactic trade partners and he has formalized Strategic Alliances that have greatly expanded AMC’s sphere of influence and protective covenant in the Galaxy.
Successful policy abroad brings stability at home! All of the Prefsbelt Sector remains safely in the control and protection of AMC.
