4th FedCom RCT

4th FedCom RCT
Affiliation Federated Commonwealth
Parent Command Federated Commonwealth Corps


The Fourth FedCom RCT was formed as part of the Federated Commonwealth Corps.

History[edit]

The Fourth FedCom RCT was stationed on Highspire in 3038; the following year, the unit garrisoned Errai. After the War of 3039 ended, they were back on Highspire.[1]

Formed in sometime between 3034 and 3037, the Fourth Federated Commonwealth RCT recruited from both the Lyran Commonwealth and Federated Suns in an attempt to build loyalty to the Federated Commonwealth as a whole. The unit was posted to the world of Lesalles until at least 3050.[2]

The Fourth Federated Commonwealth RCT remained on Lesalles until the succession of the Lyran half of the Federated Commonwealth. The unit was renamed by order of Katherine Steiner Davion and became either the 1st or 2nd Alliance Guard. The unit's loyalties seemed questionable and it became a repository for personnel of questionable allegiance. Within two years, the unit was broken up; their equipment and the more loyal personnel were used to form the core of the new Alliance Jaegers.[3]

Notes[edit]

  • The parade colors of the Fourth, when it was a member of the FedCom Corps, were navy blue with gold banding on the arms and legs of 'Mechs. Gold is also used to highlight panels on the upper torsos of 'Mechs and turrets of armor units, resulting in a checkerboard pattern. After being renamed, the color scheme was changed to a brown and tan paint scheme with black edging.
