The Nineteenth Galedon Regulars was a BattleMech regiment in service to the Draconis Combine.

History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The Nineteenth Galedon Regulars may have been an active unit during the Age of War, but during the Star League era the Galedon Regulars brigade was kept to a limited size by the Star League Council Edict of 2650; when the Star League Council overturned the edict in the mid-Twenty-eighth century the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery began expanding rapidly, but by 2765 only twenty-nine commands had been reactivated, numbered between the First and Fortieth Galedon Regulars and the Nineteenth wasn't one of the active commands.[3] The Nineteenth was activated as a combat command at some point during the First Succession War.[2]

Succession Wars[edit]

The unit has spent almost four decades garrisoning the back water world of Bad News. There is evidence that the unit has been operating without orders to hunt down bandits and raid Periphery worlds. They keep this activity low-key, and the Warlord of Galedon may be turning a blind eye toward it.[4]

In 3025 the unit was still stationed on Bad News.[5]

Ronin Wars[edit]


War of 3039[edit]


Clan Invasion[edit]


Operation Bulldog[edit]


Dominion War[edit]


Federated Suns Incursion[edit]


Jihad[edit]

Stationed in the Tabayama Prefecture with the 16th Galedon Regulars, the Nineteenth Galedon Regulars spent most of the Jihad traveling around the prefecture, "showing the flag" and rebuilding civilian confidence. At 85% of their pre-Jihad size, they're currently the largest Galedon Regulars unit. The unit has split into two groups, one based on Kazanka and the other on Tabayama.[6]

Republic Era[edit]

In 3085, the Nineteenth redeployed to their new baseworld, Hun Ho. The Nineteenth wasn't part of the DCMS' punitive strike against the Snow Ravens in 3083. The unit desires a rematch with the Clan forces, but is still busy processing their new recruits.[7]

Dark Age[edit]

The Nineteenth has involved with the invasion into the Federated Suns, however they were forced back to Le Blanc after taking serious losses on Doneval II.[8]

Officers[edit]

Rank Name Command
Commanding Officers of the 19th Galedon Regulars
General Janet Parkinson 3025[5]
Tai-sa Bobby Bock 3050 - 3059[4][9][10]

Tactics[edit]

The Nineteenth has been used mainly as a garrison unit, and has therefore mastered defensive tactics. A particular favorite is a standing-line defense, concentrating fire on one target at a time, then driving forward to split the opposing force in half.[4]
