Dragon's Breath was formed from former members of the 17th Skye Rangers in 2989, they left the LCAF and gathered on Galatea for assignment. Their first client was the Lyran Commonwealth. Until now they served their home state with distinction.[1]

Dragon's Breath was employed by the Draconis Combine and stationed on Kiesen as of 3067. By 3070, the unit was reduced from a regiment to a battalion of 'Mechs, augmented by a company of aerospace fighters.[1]

Under a new contract with the Federated Suns (possibly set up by the enigmatic Mr. Askai), Dragon's Breath participated in an ill-fated attack on Sian on 13 September 3070.[2] The defending CCAF and Canopian forces destroyed them and the mercenaries they were leading in Word of Blake employ Grandin's Crusaders, one of the mercenary units they were leading was able to escape.[3][4]

Somehow the unit was recomposed as it was still active in 3145.
