Fifth Hastati Sentinels
Unit Profile (as of 3085)
Parent Formation Hastati Sentinels
Formed 3081



The V Hastati Sentinels (also known as the Fifth 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. The Fifth has remained in their Prefecture, learning to work with a population that generally dislikes them.[1]

In 3085 the V Hastati was stationed on Liao in Prefecture V of the Republic of the Sphere.[2] The 513th Infantry Regiment within the 510th Infantry Brigade of V Hastati was held up as an example of an exemplary unit within the Republic Armed Forces that same year. Built in large part around a former Armed Forces of the Federated Suns regiment, the 375th Avalon Rifle Regiment, the ethos of the 513th was very much rooted in the professionalism and dedication of the battalion from the 375th that formed the nucleus of the modern Republican regiment.[3]

The V Hastati were on Second Try when the Capellan Confederation arrived to take the world. This encounter marked the first major use of the Predator Tank Destroyers by the Sentinels.[4]


As of 3085 the commanding officer was Brigadier General Kelvin Atwater.[2]

In 3111 the unit is commanded by Brigadier General Candita Morello and Kai Allard-Liao.[5]
