History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The II Hastati Sentinels (also known as the Second Hastati) were formed in late 3082 when the Republic fought the Capellan Confederation. The first six Hastati Sentinels regiments landed on Tikonov alongside Stone's Brigade. There they faced five Warrior House regiments and forced them offworld.[1]

The Second Hastati later attacked Wei, defeating the 4th Tau Ceti Rangers.[1]

In 3085 II Hastati was stationed on Wei in Prefecture V of the Republic of the Sphere.[2]

The Dark Age[edit]

In 3136 Wasat was the site of a battle between elements of the Republic Armed Forces loyal to Exarch Jonah Levin and elements of the RAF loyal to the Republic Senate. The loyalist forces were elements of II Hastati Sentinels, who had been responding to the recall issued by the Exarch when he invoked the Fortress Republic plan, but who had missed their JumpShip home because they'd been helping the population fight off a pirate raid. The Senate forces were led by a Major Wainwright, and were apparently a battalion from one of the Trarii Protectors commands; Wainwright claimed that the Exarch had betrayed and abandoned the Republic of the Sphere, and that the only hope for the survival of the Republic was the Senate. Wainwright then dictated that any of the RAF personnel on Wasat who attempted to resist would be guilty of treason against the Senate - a dictat that led to an immediate response from both the members of II Hastati Sentinels and elements of the planetary militia, leading to a brutal firefight between the two factions. The details were reported on LinkNet in mid-February 3136 by Hunter Malone, a MechWarrior from II Hastati.[3]

By 3145 II Hastati was no longer an active command.[4][5]

Officers[edit]

As of 3085 the commanding officer was Brigadier General Harris Harvison.[2]
