The Fourteenth Legion of Vega was a Draconis Combine BattleMech regiment. The unit was considered to be a unit meant to hold less than desirable members of the DCMS who were deemed too valuable to be removed from service.


Third Succession War[edit]

In 3025 the unit was assigned to defend Vega.[2]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

The Fourteenth engaged the Third Lyran Guards on Vega in 3028, successfully retaining the world for the Combine.[3][4]

War of 3039[edit]

In April 3039 during the War of 3039, Vega was attacked by the Federated Commonwealth's Third Davion Guard and Third Lyran Guards regiments.[5] The Fifth LAG and the Fourteenth Legion of Vega were forced off world, reluctantly withdrawing after a six week siege.[4][6]

On July 12th, the Second Legion of Vega arrived at a pirate jump point and commenced recapturing Vega from the occupying Federated Commonwealth forces, with the Fourteenth following closely behind to provide assistance. The planet was recaptured by August 16th.[7] During this reconquest, the Second Dieron Regulars and the Second Legion of Vega were supported by the elements of the Fourteenth that had withdrawn from the world. The Fourteenth forced the First Grave Walkers to break off their attack on the Second Dieron.[8]

Clan Invasion and Destruction[edit]

In 3049, Theodore Kurita made a political statement about his intentions toward the Federated Commonwealth by posting his son, Hohiro, to the Fourteenth Legion, well away from the border with Davion space. Graduating from the Sun Zhang MechWarrior Academy with honors, the Combine's Heir-Designate was assigned a prototype LosTech-equipped Grand Dragon and command of the Fourteenth's third battalion.[4]

In March 3050, the Legion attempted to defend Turtle Bay from Clan Smoke Jaguar.[4][9] The unit was destroyed, and the few survivors were reassigned to the Sixteenth Legion of Vega.[1]

In 3025 the unit had no specialization.[2]

The Fourteenth was primarily a light BattleMechs and tank force which is better on defense than attack.[4]
