While in FWL employ the unit could replace its losses with ease, because of the constant addition of new personnel. The fast-moving 'Mechs pinned down a much larger Kuritan force on Dromini IV. Then the 2nd regiment came in for the final assault. Only the breakdown of the Steiner defense saved the remaining DCMS forces.

The First Dismal Disinherited was on Outreach when the Word of Blake destroyed the world in their second assault. The First was destroyed along with the other defenders.[1]

The First uses their speed for mobile combat. The Arrow IV barrages from the artillery element can deliver deadly strikes.


The unit requires more technical support, as do the other regiments of the brigade.
