Formed Unknown

Originally a Corps to which the Taurian Defense Force assigned mercenary units, V Corps is primarily assigned to defender the Taurian Concordat's northern borders against activity from Pirate's Haven and the Calderon Protectorate.


History[edit]

Forces from V Corps were on Gaul in February 3067, battling for control of the world against a battalion from the Second Taurian Pride. Both V Corps and the Second Taurian Pride had supporting mercenary forces; V Corps was being supported by Gordon's Armored Cavalry, while the Second was being supported by Lennox's Light Horse. An ambush staged by the Light Horse in mid-to-late February resulted in the death of Marshal Amanda Revin, the commanding officer of V Corps.[1]

Like the other Corps of the Taurian Defense Force, V Corps took heavy losses during the Jihad, although as the smallest of the pre-Jihad Corps, V Corps' losses were proportionately lighter than the other corps. By 3079 the single regiment within V Corps, the inexperienced Third Taurian Lancers, were operating at just below two-thirds of full strength from their bases on Hyalite and Lothair.[2]

Officers[edit]

Marshal Amanda Revin was the V Corps commander in 3067 until her death in February.[1]

Every unit assigned to the V Corps has its own tactic.
