History[edit]

In 2765 the Twelfth Benjamin Regulars were stationed on Osumi. They were supported by a regiment of artillery, four regiments of armor, four regiments of infantry, and an aerospace fighter wing. They had participated in anti-pirate activities the previous year, and they were rebuilding.

In November 2785[1] the Twelfth Benjamin Regulars and the Seventh Proserpina Hussars invaded the Lyran Commonwealth world of Gram, swiftly conquering it. Gram had until recently been protected by the Fifth Donegal Guards, but false-flag raids by Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery units on Bone-Norman, Barcelona and Somerset had persuaded the Lyran General of the Armies, Paul Steiner, to redeploy more Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces units to the Periphery border in case the raids were indications of either resurgent Rim Worlds Republic forces or a potential invasion from the Combine. As a result, the Fifth Donegal Guards had been redeployed away from Gram, shortly ahead of the arrival of the Twelfth and Seventh. The planetary militia's infantry and armor were swiftly decimated by the lighter elements of the DCMS forces.[2]
