Formed 2nd SSW

The Nineteenth Galedon Regulars are a Heavy BattleMech Regiment in service to the Draconis Combine. Mostly used as a garrison unit, the Nineteenth sees very little action.

History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The unit has spent almost four decades garrisoning the back water world of Bad News. There is evidence that the unit has been operating without orders to hunt down bandits and raid Periphery worlds. They keep this activity low-key, and the Warlord of Galedon may be turning a blind eye toward it.[1]

Jihad[edit]

Stationed in the Tabayama Prefecture with the 16th Galedon Regulars the Nineteenth Galedon Regulars spent most of the Jihad traveling around the prefecture, "showing the flag" and rebuilding civilian confidence. At 85% of their pre-Jihad size they're currently the largest Galedon Regulars unit. The unit has split into two groups, one based on Kazanka and the other on Tabayama.[2]

Republic Era[edit]

In 3085 the Nineteenth redeployed to their new baseworld, Hun Ho. The Nineteenth wasn't part of the DCMS' punitive strike against the Snow Ravens in 3083. The unit desires a rematch with the Clan forces, but is still busy processing their new recruits.[3]

Dark Age[edit]

The Nineteenth has involved with the invasion into the Federated Suns, however they were forced back to Le Blanc after taking serious losses on Doneval II.[4]

Officers[edit]

As of 3025 the commanding officer was General Janet Parkinson.[5]

As of 3050 to 3059 the commanding officer was Tai-sa Bobby Bock.[1][6][7]

As of 3085 the commanding officer was Tai-sa Kichirou Watanabe.[8]

As of 3145 the commanding officer was Tai-sa Hideki Hendersen.[9]

Tactics[edit]

The Nineteenth has been used mainly as a garrison unit, and has therefore mastered defensive tactics. A particular favorite is a standing-line defense, concentrating fire on one target at a time, then driving forward to split the opposing force in half.[1]
