History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The Second actually predated the formation of the Draconis Combine, having been established in 2295. It serves as a training cadre for the Galedon Military Academy. Academy graduates spend two years in this regiment, after which the best have their choice of duty in any of the Galedon Regular units.[2]

Star League Era[edit]

During the Star League era the Second Galedon Regulars shared a common structure with the other regiments of the Galedon Regulars, due to the threat posed by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns. This common structure saw the First assigned a swathe of conventional regiments for support - five armor regiments and five infantry regiments, an artillery regiment and a reinforced aerospace fighter wing. Second only to the Sword of Light regiments in priority, the various Galedon Regulars regiments had excellent levels of supplies, and a high level of access to new BattleMechs and equipment.[3]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

The Second Galedon participated in the Galtor campaign in 3025, though their participation was limited to covering the withdrawal of the Eighth Galedon Regulars and the Second Amphigean Light Assault Group.[4]

Tactics[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

Due to the high number of Sun Zhang Military Academy and Galedon Military Academy recruits within the Galedon Regulars, the Regulars often displayed fanatical loyalty and courage. However, the elitism displayed by these same recruits led to poor coordination between the Regulars and the attached convention forces, who were often used as cannon fodder.[3]

Clan Invasion[edit]

The Second prefers open-field battles. Its inexperienced warriors tend to be outmaneuvered in large-scale combat or in close-quarters.[2]
