2nd Antenora Regiment
Compared to other regiments within the Clan Scholae Palatinae military, the 2nd Antenora Regiment is relatively new. Despite that, the new Regiment has performed well, tested in the crucible of combat against the Yuuzhan Vong.
The Yuuzhan Vong Disaster
The Regiment was still running unit integration exercises when the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the Cocytus System. After some initial confusion, the Legions of the Regiment quickly regrouped, although at the expense of losing well over an entire company of troops within the 46th Legion as they bought time for the rest of the Regiment to re-deploy. The heavy 47th Legion fixed the Yuuzhan Vong in place while the 48th Legion used their superior mobility to strike the main enemy formation from the flank, despite their antiquated equipment. However, the battle was largely a stalemate until the 45th, using ancient LAAT/i’s, used an air assault maneuver to drop right on top of the Yuuzhan Vong command structure. This action decimated the 45th, but the confusion amongst the enemy ranks allowed the other Legions enough time to push through, destroying the rest of the Yuuzhan Vong force that were facing them and fighting their way to relieve the rest of the 45th.
Once in command of the field of battle, they got back in contact with the remnants of the other two regiments based on Antenora, and coordinated with the 3rd Antenora Regiment to engage one of two remaining Yuuzhan Vong forces in the area. Since the 3rd Regiment had sustained extremely light casualties, they took point, with the 2nd providing backup and flank security until the Yuuzhan Vong were pushed off the planet.
The Yuuzhan Vong still threatened other planets in the system, however. Since the 2nd had been seriously mauled during the assault on Antenora, they stayed behind along with the 3rd to ensure that Antenora remained clear of any enemy forces.
As a defensive regiment with a secondary offensive strikes role, the 2nd Regiment tries to balance out both combat assignments. With terrain playing a critical role for the Kraken Regiment in their fight against the Yuuzhan Vong, the 2nd is spending a lot of time surveying the planet for defensible points they can use in defensive operations. With such heavy casualties, especially amongst the 45th Legion, the Regiment is in the process of training up tons of new recruits to standard. Along with the new troops, they are starting to get shipments of state-of-the art equipment and weapons to increase their combat power. The Regiment also is the host of the main ground force training battalions, where they are responsible for the training of all ground forces going to the other two regiments stationed on Antenora.
Unlike the Kraken Regiment, the 2nd Antenora Regiment reports directly to the Quaestor of House Acclivis Draco. The Quaestor deploys the Regiment as they see fit, and is usually deployed around key civilian and industrial areas. There is always a ready battalion, which duty is rotated amongst all of the Legions in the Regiment. This ready battalion is able to deploy anywhere within four hours on planet, and able to join up with any task force within the same time frame for any mission outside the system.
