HistoryEdit

Brion's Legacy was the second regiment of the Brion's Legion, created after the unit's stationing in Terra under ComStar contract.

The 2nd Regiment was assigned at the beginning of the Jihad as a reserve to the Bolan Province. Stationed on Bolan, the mercs had difficulty calming the situation down. After losing some units to ambushes the command increased their cooperation with the local leader. This events led to the rumors of their being the "pet" mercs of the planetary leader.[1] When the 52nd Shadow Division struck at Bolan on the 17th of February 3074, the defending 2nd Regiment was shattered and Bolan City razed.[2][3]

TacticsEdit

In contrast to its sister regiment, the 2nd uses a two step battle plan. 1st: use long-range weapons to soften the enemy before 2nd use your mobility to get in to close quarters and finish the engagement quickly. The mercenaries try to capture as much salvage as possible. The command is also known to set ambushes, building false units from scrap with bogus radio traffic as diversionary tactics. [4]
