|1st Vega Regulars|
|Unit Profile (as of 3145)|
|Parent Formation||Omega Galaxy|
Omega Galaxy were directly involved in the formation of the Vega Protectorate during the widespread invasions of the Republic of the Sphere. While the Vega Protectorate was independent Omega was starved of supplies by the Rasalhague Dominion, and the little new equipment it was able to obtain consisted largely of salvage or equipment purchased from Clan Sea Fox. When the First Vega Regulars successfully fought off an invasion by the Twelfth Falcon Jaegers in 3142 they not only achieved a notable victory - they also secured valuable salvage.
Whilst Omega lacked equipment, it had no problem attracting recruits from amongst the Vegan population, particularly after the Dominion began shipping Freeminders into the Protectorate. Omega's supply lines improved after the Vega Protectorate was absorbed into the Dominion and became a semi-autonomous province; access to the Dominion brought access to cast-off equipment from other Dominion forces. By 3145 the older Omega Clusters resembled front line Clan forces once more, while the Vega Regulars were able to draw on supplies ranging from equipment dating back to the Jihad or the Second Combine-Dominion War, as well as battle armor and 'Mechs from the Watch. With the Regulars able to incorporate real 'Mechs and light battlesuits, augmenting the capabilities already offered by their tanks and infantry equipped with Clan technology, Omega Galaxy had rebuilt to the point that it could be expected to hold the worlds it was stationed across.
