History[edit]

Star League[edit]

During the Star League era the Sixth Galedon Regulars shared a common structure with the other regiments of the Galedon Regulars, due to the threat posed by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns. This common structure saw the Sixth assigned a swathe of conventional regiments for support - five armour regiments and five infantry regiments, an artillery regiment and a reinforced aerospace fighter wing. Second only to the Sword of Light regiments in priority, the various Galedon Regular regiments had excellent levels of supplies, and a high level of access to new BattleMechs and equipment.[1]

Tactics[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

Due to the high number of Sun Zhang Military Academy and Galedon Military Academy recruits within the Galedon Regulars, the Regulars often displayed fanatical loyalty and courage. However, the elitism displayed by these same recruits led to poor coordination between the Regulars and the attached convention forces, who were often used as cannon fodder.[1]

Based on their absence from deployment tables in House Kurita (The Draconis Combine), the Sixth were presumably destroyed during the Third Succession War.[2][3]
