History[edit]

Formed in sometime between 3028 and 3034, the Second Federated Commonwealth RCT was recruited from both the Lyran Commonwealth and Federated Suns' military academies in an attempt to build loyalty to the Federated Commonwealth as a whole.

As part of Case Juliet, the Federated Commonwealth's retaliatory attack for McCarron's Armored Cavalry's raids during the War of 3039, the Second FedCom attacked the important Capellan Confederation manufacturing world of Ares in August 3039 and quickly overwhelmed and destroyed the defending Fifteenth Dracon's First Battalion. The other Dracon battalions landed on the planet eighteen days after to avenge the loss of the first, but could not dislodge the Second FedCom until the Kingston's Legionnaires landed two weeks later. Having comprehensively crippled the Bergan Industries, Quikscell Company and Earthwerks Limited factories in repayment for the Big Mac's raids, the Second withdrew back to FedCom space.[2]

The unit was posted to the world of Hsien[3] and were raided in 3049 by the Atrean Hussars, who succeeded in attacking a research facility the Second FedCom was guarding.[4] In 3057, the unit was attacked on Hsien during Operation Guerrero by Capellan Confederation and Free Worlds League forces with some of the unit retreating to Elgin, where they were destroyed by the mercenary unit Swann's Cavaliers.[1]
