Unit Profile (as of 3015)
Parent Formation Ducal Guards
Disbanded 3015


Originally formed on New Delos in November 3014, they were rotated to Semenyih in December. [1] The Eighth saw their first real action in January 3015 on Tiber, when they and the Sixth Ducal Guard supported an assault by Wolf's Dragoons' [Beta Regiment (Wolf's Dragoons)|Beta Regiment]], along with Zeta Battalion, Black Widow Company and the Fire Support Group, on the Earthwerks Incorporated factory there. The rebels secured the facility, but were soon counter-attacked by the Loyalists' 1st Regulan Hussars and the 1st, 5th, 6th and 8th Orloff Grenadiers. Although the Dragoons successfully defended the factory for a time, the green Ducal Guard troops steadily lost ground against the First and Sixth Orloff. No reinforcements were available, and by the time the rebels and Dragoons ultimately withdrew in February, the Sixth and Eighth Ducal were effectively destroyed. [2] [3]
