History[edit]

The Eighth Alshain Regulars were formed at the end of the Ronin War, alongside the creation of the Alshain Military District.[1]

Clan Invasion[edit]

As of 3050, the Regulars were stationed on Buckminster. [2] By autumn of 3051, the unit had been moved to garrison Thessalonika to meet the threat of the Clan Invasion. They were stationed there when Clan Ghost Bear attacked that world in the autumn of 3051. They lost the battle, but tied up Delta Galaxy for for over a week with the help of the Twelfth Sun Zhang Academy Cadre. Roughly two-thirds of the unit was able to get off Thessalonika, along with some elements from the 12th.[3]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

Following the Truce of Tukayyid, the unit was the only remaining Regiment of the Alshain Regulars they where renamed the Eighth Alshain Avengers.[3] They were stationed on Pilkhua in early 3059.[4].

The unit were part of a taskforce which liberated Yamarovka. THe other regiments (1st Davion Guards + 2nd Kell Hounds) fight together with the 8th against the Jaguar's 11th Garrison Cluster. The cluster had no chance against such odds.

Dominion War[edit]

In 3062, the unit participated in an unauthorized strike on Alshain, triggering the Combine-Ghost Bear War. Survivors of the conflict with the Ghost Bears were executed, and the unit was removed from the DCMS rosters. [5] In 3085 the unit was used only as a warning to dissuade commanders from starting fights on the Combine's borders with the Raven Alliance and Ghost Bear Dominion.[6][7]

Officers[edit]

Tactics[edit]

The Eighth learned quickly that the Clans could be hurt through protracted battles. Since Thessalonika, they spent their time honing their tactics to exploit this weakness.[3]

They uses their airforce for scouting missions and every convoy is escorted for self-defense. This unit has many skills that can hurt a enemy.
