Unit Description[edit]

The Fifth Dieron Regulars was a twenty-eighth century Draconis Combine BattleMech regiment.[1]


First Succession War[edit]

Just prior to the war the unit was stationed on Junction.[1]

Invasion of Towne[edit]

In December of 2785, the 5th Dieron Regulars led a task force of seven infantry and Aerospace regiments which mounted invasion of recently claimed Terran Hegemony world of Towne. The planet was garrisoned by the 56th Avalon Hussars and it was supported by the 123rd Aero Interceptor Wing. The Regulars' invasion slowly overwhelmed the Davion forces, whom were inter-service rivals didn't quite coordinate their efforts to repulse the invasion. Davions had pleaded for assistance as Regulars overwhelmed them, but bureaucracy FedSuns delayed reinforcements long enough for Regulars and its support forces to conquer the planet for the Draconis Combine. The conquest became known as "The Towne Debacle", and triggered a re-organization of House Davion's military.[2]
