Donegal Guards, 1st-17th

Donegal Mechs and vehicles use a blue-gray paint scheme. Exploiting their old Earth ties to Ireland, the Donegal Guards use a shamrock set on a dark red square as their insignia. On Donegal ‘Mechs and vehicles the Guards insignia appears on the right shoulder or side and the insignia of the unit on the left.

Having often hosted junior members of the Steiner family, the 2nd regiment has adopted a Steiner fist clutching a golden crown as its insignia.

The Third uses the Scales of Justice as their unit emblem.

The regimental insignia of the 4th is a red rectangle upon which is a crossed hammer and sickle.

The Fifth uses a variant of the Guards’ paint scheme, adding black and white highlights to their ‘Mechs and vehicles. The unit insignia of the 5th depicts a bulldog smoking a cigar.

The Sixth uses the standard blue-gray paint scheme of the Donegal Guards, but individual Mechwarriors often customize their machines, overlaying a pattern of swirling lines in a Celtic motif. The regimental insignia depicts a white hawk surrounded by interwoven vines.

Recognizing the unit’s ties to the ruling family, the insignia of the Seventh Combat Team depicts a blue-green world held in the Steiner fist.

The insignia of the Eighth shows a Zeus BattleMech half-submerged in mud.

The insignia of the Eleventh shows a pair of ‘Mechs, one a Commando and the other an Atlas, engaged in a game of tug of war.

The insignia of the Thirteenth depicts the head of an angry black cat, its hair standing on end.

The insignia of the Fourteenth depicts a running Zeus ‘Mech standing before a rising sun. 

Reflecting the RCT’s ability to disappear into the terrain, the insignia of the Seventeenth is a black disc upon which is a pair of cat’s eyes and a broad grin.
