2nd An Ting Legion
Unit Profile (as of 3145)
Nickname The Light of Enlightenment
Parent Formation An Ting Legion
Formed First Succession War[1]



The Second An Ting Legion mustered as a part of the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery during the First Succession War, at some point after 2786.[1]

Third Succession War[edit]

In 3025 the unit was stationed on New Caledonia.[2]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

The Second An Ting Legion were stationed on New Caledonia when Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG, the major Lyran Commonwealth offensive of the Fourth Succession War, began. The garrison on New Caledonia had an unusually large continent of aerospace fighters, but the arrival of the Tenth Donegal Guards RCT and the Thirtieth Lyran Guards RCT in the New Caledonia system on the 22nd of August 3028 achieved total surprise over the defending forces. The Thirtieth dropped north of Redfev, the planetary capital city and major industrial center, while the Tenth dropped to the south of the city. The Second An Ting Legion managed to withdraw from New Caledonia, but the two Lyran RCTs inflicting enough damage on the Legion that more than a fifth of its equipment had been lost before the Legion escaped.[3]

Ronin Wars[edit]

Stationed on Trondheim, the Second An Ting came under attack by the Twenty-fifth Rasalhague Regulars. Operating under falsified orders, the Twenty-fifth decimated the Second An Ting's barracks and motor pool in a well-organized surprise attack.

After two days, the Second An Ting rallied their forces outside of Misby Flats and attempted to retake the city from the Twenty-fifth Rasalhague Regulars. During their approach; however, the Second came under prolonged artillery fire. Suffering from several hundred rounds of artillery fire, targeted without regard for the local citizenry, the Second withdrew and called for reinforcements.[4]

War of 3039[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

During the Clan Invasion the Second An Ting Legion was stationed on Tanh Linh with the 42nd Dieron Regulars. The two units expected to have a peaceful rotation after the Truce of Tukayyid, but the 3rd Jaguar Cavaliers attacked the world just two weeks after the Truce went into effect.[5]

Using their skill at night fighting to frustrate the Smoke Jaguars, the Second played a game of cat and mouse with the Jaguars, never staying in one place very long and keeping the Clan unit off-balance. Finally after a week of these tactics, the Smoke Jaguars pinned the Forty-second Dieron Regulars against a mountain range and started blasting them to bits. The Second An Ting Legion slammed into the rear of the Jaguar unit, capturing it between the two DCMS units and driving it offworld. This was one of the earliest victories against the Clans, but a bittersweet one; The Forty-second Dieron Regulars were destroyed and the Second suffered heavy losses.[5]

The Second An Ting was rotated to Leiston to rebuild. This rebuilding effort resulted in the Legion having a large amount of upgraded Inner Sphere equipment.

Operation Bulldog[edit]

In 3062 the Second was posted on Richmond. They faced the Fifth Bear Regulars of Clan Ghost Bear's Xi Galaxy.[6]

They also fought on Mienacos, Irece, and Caripare.[7]

Dominion War[edit]

The Second An Ting Legion fought the 5th Bear Regulars on Richmond. The Bears inflicted serious losses on the Legion, but a strike to the Bear's rear area by the 2nd Sword of Light forced the Bear Regulars to withdraw.[8]

Federated Suns Incursion[edit]


In late 3077 the Second An Ting Legion reinforced the 10th Pesht Regulars in their attack on Qandahar. While there, the two units expelled Black Dragon Society supporters and held the planet under martial law until a new civilian government could be installed. [9] They spent the next year hunting down Black Dragon supporters on Virentofta, McAlister, and Bangor before being assigned to garrison Bjarred. Later in 3078 the Second and the 1st Arkab Legion arrived to reinforce the 10th Pesht Regulars, who were fighting on Korramabad. The Second's members were totally disgusted by what they saw on the world. To cleanse the honor of the Combine, the Second subordinated themselves to the 1st Arkab Legion and supported the Legion assault on Slaithwaite.[10] The successful campaign on Slaithwaite saw more than 300 Black Dragon Society leaders and sympathizers executed.[11] After that campaign, the Second split into battalions and garrisoned Korramabad, Gravenhage and Hartshill.[10]

Republic Era[edit]

3085 found the Second An Ting Legion on Klathandu IV. Unfortunately the Draconis March forces have raided the world constantly, and as a result the unit has lost a battalion of troops.[12]

Dark Age[edit]

The Second was posted with the Eighth Legion of Vega during the reclaiming of the Dieron Military District worlds. Their advance were stopped however by the creation of the Fortress Republic. They are currently hung out alone on the triple border of the Republic of the Sphere and the Vega Protectorate. The Second has refrained from attacking the Rasalhague Dominion due to their concern over the poorly supplied Eighth. Currently they are content with carrying out recon raids and repelling the same.[13]

The Second An Ting Legion specialized in night operations and engaging multiple enemies at once. It wasn't unusual for the members of the Second An Ting to put so much fire on so many targets that the enemy thought they were being attacked by a battalion rather than a company.[5]
