History[edit]

Dragon's Breath was formed from former members of the 17th Skye Rangers in 2989, they left the LCAF and gathered on Galatea for assignment. Their first client was the Lyran Commonwealth. Until now they served their home state with distinction.[1]

In 3025 the unit was stationed on Winter,[2] a post they still had in 3040.[3]

By 3050 the unit was stationed in Rochelle,[4] and by 3059 it was stationed in Xinyang. [5]

Dragon's Breath was employed by the Draconis Combine and stationed on Kiesen as of 3067. By 3070, the unit was reduced from a regiment to a battalion of 'Mechs, augmented by a company of aerospace fighters.[1]

Under a new contract with the Federated Suns (possibly set up by the enigmatic Mr. Askai), Dragon's Breath participated in an ill-fated attack on Sian on 13 September 3070.[6] The defending CCAF and Canopian forces destroyed them and the mercenaries they were leading in Word of Blake employ Grandin's Crusaders, one of the mercenary units they were leading was able to escape.[7][8]

Enough of the unit survived and retreated because as of 3085, the Dragon's Breath were at seventy percent of full strength and under contract to the Draconis Combine garrisoning the world of Enif.[9]

As of 3145, the Dragon's Breath were at ninety-five percent of full strength and still under contract to the Draconis Combine, now garrisoning the Irece system.[10]
