History[edit]

The Twenty-second was a part of the XVIII Corps, Seventeenth Army, and in 2764 was assigned to an undisclosed world in the Magistracy of Canopus territorial state. They were part of the reserve for LXXII Corps, which patrolled the anti-spinward regions of the Magistracy of Canopus.[1]

The Twenty-second was caught up in the rebellion that followed the New Vandenberg Uprising in 2765 and fought during the campaign to liberate the Terran Hegemony. The regiment didn't follow Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus; instead, the Twenty-second joined the Lyran Commonwealth.[3] The Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces recruited the Twenty-second in 2782, and inducting the Twenty-second into the Donegal Guards brigade as the Fifth Donegal Guards.[2]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Dragoon regiment the Twenty-Second would have been composed primarily of heavy to assault 'Mechs, plus tanks and hovercraft.[4]
