Benjamin Regulars
Unit Profile (as of 3067)
Parent Formation DCMS
Formed unknown

While the Benjamin Military District is one of the smallest, the DCMS High Command uses the Benjamin Regulars as a ready-reserve to bolster both defensive and offensive operations.


During the Jihad the Benjamin Regulars as a whole were seriously wounded. In fact only the 2nd and 17th Regulars survived the Jihad. After losing many warriors and machines to attacks from the Word of Blake and the Federated Suns, as of 3079 the Benjamin Regulars are not expected to be ready for combat operations for at least a decade. These rebuilding efforts are further hindered by the fact that most of their replacement units consist of armor and infantry forces.[1]

The loss of the Dieron Military District to the Republic of the Sphere meant that the Benjamin Regulars were called upon to do more front-line defensive work. These efforts were hampered however by the betrayal of the Sixth Benjamin Regulars during the Jihad. To prevent further collaboration with the Black Dragon Society, the Second and Seventeenth Benjamin Regulars were stationed as far away from each other as possible, while the new Forty-third Regulars were stationed on Benjamin under the watchful eye of the ISF.[2]

Units of the Benjamin Regulars[edit]

Because the District forces have many conventional commands most of the BattleMech regiments have only temporary support assets. But that thinking has changed in time, now a few Commanding Officers include some smaller conventional assets to their mech units permanently.[3]
