7th Ghost Regiment
Unit Profile (as of 3145)
Nickname "Cleansed By Dragon's Dark Passing"
Parent Formation Ghost Regiments
Formed ????



The Seventh Ghost regiment was mostly composed of undesirables, reformed criminals, and yakuza. The commanders of the 7th worked very hard to make their warriors look to their future instead of their past. One key to this success was the commander's judgment of the warriors based solely on their performance in the regiment.[1]

War of 3039[edit]

The 7th Ghost were send together with the 8th Ghost as release force to the beleaguered 2nd Shin Legion on Sadalbari. The Legion was at the point of total destruction, because they faced two Davion RCTs the 5th Davion Guards and 3rd FedCom RCT. The fresh troops surprised the invaders with a combat drop at head of the 3rd Fed Com. The continued pressure were to much for the 3rd and the 5th suffer also horrendous loses. The FedCom troops retreated with no reinforcement in jump range. [2]

Dominion War[edit]

Located on Matsuida after Operation Bulldog, the 7th Ghost sent two battalions to the Ghost Bear front while leaving the third behind to garrison the planet.[3] While those two battalions were away, the Federated Suns hit Matsuida, destroying the 7th Ghost's third battalion. The AFFS forces were forced off-world by the returning two battalions of the 7th Ghost and several other DCMS units.[3]

During the FedCom Civil War the 17th Avalon Hussars landed on Matsuida. There they were led on a merry chase by a battalion of the Seventh Ghost. After nearly two months of cat and mouse, the Seventeenth Hussars were able to destroy the battalion of the Seventh Ghost.[4]

Federated Suns Incursion[edit]

The 7th Ghost took the world of Harrow's Sun for the Combine.[5]


They were ordered garrison Marduk in the early years of the Jihad. Federated Suns forces raided the planet several times, and the Seventh requested permission to retaliate. Unfortunately a Black Dragon Society sympathizer rerouted the Seventh's requests and so the Seventh simply held their post for several years. After the 1st Ghost left Fellanin II a rebellion broke out. In 3075 Tai-shu Isoroku Kurita personally ordered the Seventh to destroy the rebellion. Unfortunately the Black Dragon Society-controlled Sabre Cat was orbiting the world and destroyed two of the Seventh's DropShips. Despite this the Seventh was successful in purging the Black Dragons from Fellanin II. They remain on the world in 3079.[6]

Republic Era[edit]

In 3085 the Seventh Ghost was reassigned to Capra. There they faced multiple raids from the Federated Suns and Clan Snow Raven. To make up the losses they've sustained in these raids, the Seventh has lowered their acceptance standards. This does let them put more soldiers in the field, but these poorly-trained and equipped troops frequently don't survive combat. This vicious cycle makes rebuilding the unit extremely difficult.[7]

Dark Age[edit]

The Seventh Ghost regiment invaded Sakhara V after the Blackout.[8] They engaged the cadets of the Sakhara Academy Training Battalion and lost all their infantry, all but a company of tanks, and a third of their 'Mech forces. The Seventh still claimed Sakhara V, due to their aerospace losing half the Wing to make suicidal strafing runs, that allowed the Ghost ’Mechs to move in for the kill.[9]


As of 3059 the commanding officer was Tai-sa Tosakin Kaitu.[1].

In 3067 the 7th Ghost was commanded by Tai-sa Monique Chesque.[5]

As of 3085 the commanding officer was Tai-sa Rufus Basurto.[10]

As of 3145 the commanding officer was Tai-sa Takeji Yoshizawa.[11]


The unit prepares itself for any future engagement with the Smoke Jaguars. Defensive tactics are best suited for such a case. Most of the unit is equipped with heavy or assault class units. The 7th Ghost was also one of the few Ghost Regiments to have a company of Battle Armor-equipped infantry.[1]
