Beta Regiment of the Twelfth Vegan Rangers formed between the Second Succession War and Third Succession War. Their early contracts were fighting against the Free Worlds League for the Lyran Commonwealth. They were successful most of the time, and the unit was nicknamed "The Victories" by the LCAF forces around them. They were a perennial problem for the Free Worlds League until they rotated back to the Federated Suns to fight alongside Alpha Regiment.[1]

Operation GuerreroEdit

During Operation Guerrero Beta Regiment lost half its troops. The unit was rebuilt with the survivors from the Twelfth Vegan Rangers Delta Regiment, which was disbanded due to heavy losses.

FedCom Civil WarEdit

They landed on Algol to support Gamma Regiment against the Tikonov Republican Guard. They took heavy losses, but destroyed the 3rd Republican in exchange. They rebuilt from salvage and the survivors of Gamma Regiment, and then deployed to Genoa to fight Little Richard's Panzer Brigade. The Brigade was hated by the local population, and the locals quickly assisted the Rangers in forcing the Brigade off their world. The Panzer Brigade's survivors landed on Arboris but Beta Regiment followed them. The Beta Rangers inflicted heavy losses on the Panzer Brigade and again forced them off the world.[1]


During the Jihad Beta Regiment traveled to New Avalon, landing in February, 3068. A few days later the 36th Division arrived, and the Blakist unit destroyed most of the first two battalions. The survivors, along with third battalion, quickly redeployed to assist the 3rd Davion Guards. For the next five years, Beta's survivors continued to coordinate their efforts until they lost half their remaining troops defending an ammunition depot. They then redeployed to a different continent and came under attack several times, but somehow survived.[2]


In 3067 Colonel Miller al-Nahib had led the regiment for four decades.[1]


The First and Second Battalions act as the main body and the Third reinforces the line if needed or harasses the flanks.[1]


The techs have no problem to repair all equipment of the unit.
