|Unit Profile (as of 3059)|
|CO||Colonel Timothy Nels|
The Dioscuri are a mercenary unit that formed part of the Allied Mercenary Command. Circa 3025 their unit strength was two regiments of medium BattleMechs along with infantry support, and they were under contract to the Federated Suns. Their commanding officers at the time were Colonel Timothy Nells and Colonel Michael Nells, with the unit skill level being noted as regular. In 3050 the Dioscuri consisted of two regiments, Castor and Pollux. They were hired by the Federated Commonwealth and deployed in the Malagrotta PDZ. Castor (the first regiment) was stationed on Vackisujfalu, while Pollux (the second regiment) was assigned to garrison Great Gorge.
In 3064 the mercs support the Sixth Donegal Guards against the Jade Falcon Delta Galaxy on Kikuyu. The unit lost most of their equipment before they could retreat back to Morges. The fighting left only one mech battalion.
In 3070 a Word of Blake signal intercepted by ROM indicated that the Blakists believed the Dioscuri to be located on Morges in the Lyran Alliance and considered the Dioscuri to be out of position to interfere with the Blakist's plans, but also indicated that the Dioscuri should be dealt with in a lethal and expedient manner if encountered.
The Jade Falcon strike again in 3071 with the known Delta Galaxy. The command was during this time at regimental strength but the heavy fighting took its tall. Only two companies survied this hell. The unit is a shadow of its former self.
