The Mahakam Volunteer Army was a dwarven infantry unit. They were Mahakam's contribution to the war effort against the Nilfgaardian Empire. Those who signed up did not expect to come back. They were given the suicide missions not the ones which might win the war. The soldiers were armed with pistols and crossbows, rohatynas, dwarven clubs and axes. The unit participated in the Battles of Brenna, Mayena and Maribor, and paraded in Novigrad. Jarre wanted to join them, but ultimately joined the Poor Fucking Infantry.
