FedCom Civil War[edit]

During the FedCom Civil War Alpha Regiment inflicted heavy casualties on the 3rd FedCom RCT before jumping to Algol to assist the other Vegan Ranger regiments. They destroyed the defending Tikonov Republican Guards on that world, and then redeployed to Addicks to force the 10th Ghost and 12th Ghost off-world.[1]
