|An Ting Legion|
|Nickname||Return to Prosperity |
Formed in the wake of the First Succession War on the then still prosperous world of An Ting, the An Ting Legions have a history of honored service to the Combine and are closely linked to the An Ting Academy.
In the Second Succession War, the An Ting Legions served much the same purpose as the Proserpina Hussars, earning the same respect and glory. The An Ting Legion originally consisted of five regiments. As the war wore on and the An Ting suffered several major defeats, the five regiments of the group dwindled to just two.
Those two have survived into 3025. In the past, the An Ting Legions got direct replacements from the An Ting Academy and graduates from this school went into the An Ting Legion. Unfortunately, once the academy was destroyed, the Legion felt it, and by 3025 the An Ting Legions are Free-Floating Regiments. Some in the DCMS thought this was only appropriate as the Academy got into a feud with the Sun Zhang Mechwarrior Academy.
The Jihad saw the effective destruction of An Ting due to quarantine. The effects of this quarantine, and how it would affect the Legions was unclear, but rumors suggested the DCMS will not be rebuilding any of the destroyed An Ting Legion. As the DCMS rebuilt from the losses taken, the An Ting Legion found themselves falling somewhere between the second and third tier of units when it came to replacements and supplies. Because of the smaller size of the An Ting Legion compared to the Regulars, the Legion found themselves a lower priority for rebuilding than the Regulars, but were accorded considerably more support than the Ghost Regiments or the Legions of Vega.
The An Ting Legion shares with the Galedon Regulars by bearing the name of worlds lost during the Jihad. In An Ting's case, the population managed through the plague while the rest of the Combine looked on and kept the planet quarantined.

An Ting Legion Details
The Procurement Department treats the regiments with little respect, and so the units are in decline.
Dark blue is the color chosen for An Ting regiments. Their unit crest is a black dragonet against a red background.
