To help promote nationalist feelings in the newly formed Lyran Alliance, those Federated Commonwealth Corps RCTs stationed in the Lyran half of that former state were renamed under the banner of the Alliance Guards.


History[edit]

The 1st and 2nd were disbanded, the best Lyran loyalist troops and equipment being transferred to bolster the showpiece Alliance Jaegers. The remaining brigades served as sink units for troops whose loyalty to the Archon-Princess was suspect; they were not re-equipped, and used mostly outdated war materiel.

During the Jihad, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Alliance Guards were used as reserve forces that supplemented the "more trustworthy" LAAF troops. Several Guards units took part in heavy offensives, and took serious damage as a result. In addition, the Guards units were picked clean for "politically reliable" troops who could make up losses in other LAAF commands. As they are near the end of the supply list, they will likely receive units cast off from other Alliance commands as they upgrade. At the moment, the lack of supplies hasn't been a problem because the Guards units lack the troops to pilot the missing machines.[1]
