The Fifth Sakhara Academy Training Battalion was one of six ad hoc regiments of troops formed by the staff and students of the Sakhara Academy during the First Succession War.
Founded during the First Succession War along with five sister training battalions, the Fifth Sakhara was a mixed regiment formed from the students and staff of the Sakhara Academy. The Fifth soon distinguished itself; fighting alongside its sister commands, the Fifth fought off three separate attacks by the Third Sword of Light and three other veteran BattleMech regiments. This became known as the Days of Jousting at Dragons, and established Sakhara Academy's reputation.
