|Unit Profile (as of 3085)|
|Parent Formation||Triarii Protectors|
The V Triarii Protectors (also known as the Fifth Triarii), are the garrison unit for Prefecture V. Currently the Fifth isn't on its garrison world, but is instead taking part in a six month training exercise.
After the Blackout the Capellan Confederation sent troops into the Republic. The Second McCarron's Armored Cavalry regiment landed on Liao and faced the garrisoning troops. After six years of terrorist assaults by the Ijori Dè Guāng the garrison forces were on edge, and peaceful protests quickly exploded into violence. The Liao Standing Guard, the Fifth Triarii Protectors and V Principes Guards faced multiple hit and run attacks from the Armored Cavalry across two continents while the protesters and Ijori Dè Guāng joined forces with dissident elements of the Liao Conservatory of Military Arts to cause more problems. Despite this, five weeks of fighting had slowed the Capellan forces. Then the Dynasty Guard arrived. They joined with the dissident forces and opened a new front against the Republic troops. The Republic forces might still have won, but one of their aerospace fighters shot down a medical transport DropShip filled with refugees thinking it was transporting CCAF reinforcements. Overnight all loyalty to the Republic disappeared and the citizens of Liao rioted against the Republic troops. A last minute attack against the Dynasty Guard failed, and the Republic forces surrendered. They were allowed to leave Liao, returning the system to the Confederation.
Early February 3135 forces from McCarron's Armored Cavalry raided New Aragon. They fought and were expelled back by the Fifth Triarii Protectors but not prior to reducing to dust the industrial sector of Jahrman, the second-largest city in Tandoh province.
