Fourth Succession War[edit]

At the start of the Fourth Succession War the Fifth Amphigean Light Assault Group was stationed on the world Harvest alongside the mercenary unit Helmut's Hermits and a considerable number of supporting regiments. The regiment was taken by suprise by the attack of the First Lyran Regulars, the Third Lyran Regulars and the Fourth Donegal Guards during Operation Gotterdammerung. The Fifth LAG was eventually being forced to retreat to Kirchbach. However, the LCAF attacked Kirchbach during the exploitation phase. Kirchbach was defended by the Fifth Amphigean LAG and two additional DCMS 'Mech units, Helmut's Hermits and the Seventeenth Rasalhague Regulars. The Lyran task force consisted of the Tyr Regiment, Winfield's Brigade, the Fourth Donegal Guards and the Third Lyran Regulars. The DCMS units were driven off-world in short order after the Seventeenth Regulars had been crushed by the Tyr Regiment.[1][2]

War of 3039[edit]


In April 3039 Vega was hit by the Federated Commonwealths Third Davion Guards and Third Lyran Guards regiments. The Fifth LAG and the Fourteenth Legion of Vega were forced off world.[3]

Clan Invasion[edit]

The Fifth was shattered during the Clan Invasion when Clan Ghost Bear attacked Krenice. The Fifth did severe damage to the Twelfth Bear Chevaliers when they first landed, and proceeded to launch a series of raids on their supply lines and ran a series of hit and run assaults. The Ghost Bears were able to flush the Fifth out of their hiding places via air support, and forced the Fifth to move across the continent away from their DropShips. The Fifth's commander dispatched smaller groups to slow the pursuing Bears by hitting them in the flanks. The Fifth was driving towards the city of Hasnorvan while stringing out and attacking the Bears. Unfortunately the Bears had lifted an assault Trinary to the city and occupied fortified positions. When the Fifth reached the city, they were caught in a crossfire that destroyed them.[4]
