|Unit Profile (as of 3050)|
|Nickname||"The Fate of Enemies"|
|Parent Formation||Galedon Regulars|
The Eighth Galedon Regulars where a heavy BattleMech regiment in service to the Draconis Combine. During the Third Succession War their Mech forces were two thirds heavy and assault units and they only used the heaviest light and medium mechs.
The Eighth, along with the remaining bulk of the Sixth Benjamin Regulars, were assigned to recapture the planet for the Combine under the command of the Sixth's Commanding Officer Sho-sho Goros. Undermanned and outnumbered, hampered by the old-school "victory or death" suicide charges and bitter arguments between unit commanders, the Combine taskforce suffered heavy losses but held on in desperation in the remains of a Succession Wars era fort. The DCMS taskforce was ultimately saved by the recall of all AFFS combat units from the Draconis Combine, returning Marduk to Combine hands.

The Eighth Galedon Regulars regiment was decimated during the Clan Invasion. The surviving units of the Eighth where combined with the Thirty-fourth Galedon Regulars to form the 42nd Galedon Regulars.
