“The division commanded by Captain M'Quve was responsible for mining
mineral resources and transporting them to the homeland. It landed on
the northern shore of the Caspian Sea on March 4, U.C. 0079, capturing
mining facilities in every area and taking charge of their operation.
This division was made up mainly of engineering and technical units, and
had few combat units.
This corps also reported directly to Rear
Admiral Kycilia and wasn’t included in the Earth Attack Force command
structure. The fact that there were two separate chains of command on
Earth was a grave mistake by the Zeon forces, and was to have a major
effect on the later war situation.”
