The 101st Pesht Guard Regiment was a Infantry based combat unit in service of the Draconis Combine's Armed Forces. The command was made up principally of conventional infantry which was augmented by some airborne combat vehicles and conventional aircraft formations.

History[edit]

The unit had been attached to the Sixth Pesht Regulars not long prior to the Clan Invasion. They developed close working ties with the Regulars' Third company[1], regardless of growing friction between 3rd company and the rest of the regiment.[2]. Later in history, when the 'Mech Regiment been divided by reassigning of Regulars 2nd company on Land's End, the Guards would be left on Qandahar with the 3rd company and the rest of the regiment.[3][4]

As with their parent unit, the 101st Guards had no active role in the early Jihad and would remain stranded on Qandahar. Later they were transferred to Kaznejoy as an deterrent against raids by Davion troops from the Draconis March. In 3076, not long before Operation SCOUR the regiment could take part in an clashes with the Lyran 7th Donegal Guards on Lyons.[5]. After that incident, the Sixth Regulars were sent back to Pesht.[6].

Officers[edit]

From 3059 to 3067 Tai-sa Jacob Zedong was the unit's commanding officer.[1][4]

Tactics[edit]

Guard duty and deep mobile strikes.[1]
