Stroiteliga Bratva was formed in the aftermath of the dissolution of a group known today simply as the Old Alliance. The first major realm-wide alliance that responded to bandit attacks on towns and cities that local police groups couldn't repel. Eventually the Black Legion appeared and made the world it's home, launching a number of raids and edge incursions against them. Eventually the group started to buckle from infighting and it's inability to deal with rising threats.
Several Alliance officers defected to the new group known as the Imperiya, days later, when all hope was lost. Another wave defected, deciding to start a new group following similar principles to the old alliance, but rather than trying to defend everything, this new League would only protect those who signed up and contributed to the cause. They would compete with the Imperiya for the scraps of the Old Alliance's territory, eventually sparking a war that became jokingly known as the "Star War" given that both groups used a star as their flag.
After the dust settled, the Stroiteliga Bratva settled down as an alliance of city-states and merchants. Their territory is not as vast as their rivals, but they still control some of the most valuable assets in the realm.

The Stroiteliga Bratva's military is a jack of all trades and a master of none, biggest strength is diplomacy... For any lack within it's own army, it can usually make up for by bringing allies into a fight. As such, the SLB is often reliant on specialists from allied factions to fill the gaps in their battle plans or to bolster numbers, but when standing alone they still maintain a diverse arsenal of competent soldiers, specialists, light and heavy vehicles. Their protective nature towards civilians often gains them the support of militias just looking to help defend their worlds
The League maintains a sizable army, and a signifigant fleet of space ships, albeit small in stature.
The vast majority of the Stroiteliga Bratva's military presence is that of a trained Militia, regular citizens who have devoted their time to defending their, and others homes and businesses. Bolstered by Mercenaries and defectors from other groups. Despite being primarily a Militia, their forces are remarkably well equipped. Rivalled only by the Black Legion and Monolith Imperiya.
