HistoryEdit

The Fourth Alshain Regulars were founded sometime between 3035 and 3039[1] and did not see action during the War of 3039, instead serving in garrison duty on Rubigen and Buckminster.[2]

The Fourth later fought against Clan Ghost Bear's First Bear Guards on Rubigen in April 3052 during the Clan Invasion. They waged a hit-and-run fight against the Bears for three weeks, notably using holographic projections as decoys during the initial phase of the fighting, before Tai-sa Timsjek decided to withdraw his surviving soldiers off-world. Less than a battalion of the Fourth succeeded in escaping.[3]

At some point between 3054 and 3058 the battalion was merged with two other surviving battalions of Alshain Regulars (one apiece from the Third and Seventh regiments) to form the Fourteenth Alshain Avengers.[4]

Each 'Mech company usually went into battle accompanied by an armor company, while the aerofighters were trained in tactics by individual company. The infantry battalion served as an anti-'Mech force[1]
