Oh sorry Darth, I misread a bit and thought that your father had been involved in war after he moved to Mandalore. Nevermind then.
Also I'dd just like to add, Mandalorian Battle Armor is very complex and since this is the first war they use it in there would be alot of regular soldiers accidently botching attack stratagies and killing team mates and such because they didn't know how to use their armor very well.
I read somewhere that in the Mandalorian Wars the Jedi defeated the Mandalorians because the complexity of the armor caused regular soldiers to make mistakes and injure team mates often. However skillful Mandalorians would outmatch regular jedi because of their lightsaber proof armor and diverse arsenal.
