Unit Description[edit]

The Fourteenth Legion of Vega was a Draconis Combine BattleMech regiment. The unit was considered to be a unit meant to hold less than desirable members of the DCMS whom were deemed to valuable to be removed from service.


Fourth Succession War[edit]

The Fourteenth engaged the Third Lyran Guard on Vega in 3028.[1][2]

War of 3039[edit]


In April 3039 Vega was hit by the Federated Commonwealth's 3rd Davion Guard and 3rd Lyran Guards regiments. The Fifth LAG and the 14th Legion of Vega were forced off world.[3]

On July 12th the 2nd Legion of Vega arrived at a pirate jump point and commenced recapturing Vega from the occupying Federated Commonwealth forces, with the Fourteenth following closely behind to provide assistance. The planet was recaptured by August 16th.[4]

Clan Invasion[edit]

In 3049, Theodore Kurita made a political statement about his intentions toward the Federated Commonwealth by posting his son, Hohiro, to the 14th Legion, well away from the border with Davion space.


In March 3050 the Legion attempted to defend Turtle Bay from Clan Smoke Jaguar.[5] The unit was destroyed, and the few survivors were reassigned to the 16th Legion of Vega.[6]
