After a four-year statutory term as Vice Chief, he was placed into the reserves and was appointed Minister of War, following the resignation of Minister Liu Calvin. His push for technological superiority and aggressive strategy led to considerable gains in the Magellanic War, but the successful enemy counteroffensive in 3295 and the subsequent incursion in the Milky Way became an embarrassment and he was forced to resign as Minister of War. He was reactivated for Air Force service and appointed Superintendent of the Royal Air Academy.
