Unit Description[edit]

A dedicated Federated Suns regiment, used to support BattleMech regimental formations for offensive and defensive actions.

History[edit]

Third Succession War[edit]

The 782nd Davion Guards Auxiliary was assigned the defense of the fake Star League depot on Galtor. The unit was wiped out to the last man while fighting the Third Benjamin Regulars.[1]

The Combine 'Mechs exterminated the Guards one platoon at a time, clearing the DropShip hulks and discovering the empty storage building. When offered to be extricated, Oliver replied that the Guards did not flee. When the surviving Guards retreated into the tunnel under the depot, hoping to lure the Third Benjamin 'Mechs into a trap, Sho-sho Naguchido ordered his men to collapse the tunnels. None of the 259 troopers in the Guards survived the battle, but killed or crippled twelve 'Mechs in their last stand.[2]
