Comprised of the elite of Wolf's Dragoons, who are themselves the elite of all mercenaries and the Inner Sphere, Alpha Regiment has long served as the Dragoons' high profile unit, with the best equipment, the finest officers, vast support and fresh paint jobs. Originally nicknamed "First Team" and later "The Dire Wolves", Alpha Regiment is given the highest profile assignments that guarantee the most media coverage, the better to distract the public from the discreet operations of the other Dragoon units.
With attached Infantry, Armor and Aerospace Fighter units, plus ample DropShip and JumpShip transport, Alpha Regiment clearly embodies the Combined Arms Doctrine championed by Colonel Jaime Wolf's Dragoons. Colonel Wolf himself commanded Alpha for over forty years before turning command over to Kelly Yukinov, who had served as his second-in-command for nearly twenty years. This did not lessen Alpha's quality, however, as it continued to maintain the highest standards and professionalism.
It was in Alpha that the best battlemechs the Dragoons could field would be found. In the years before the Clan Invasion, it fielded significant numbers of exclusive Dragoon 'mechs, most notably fielding the highest number of 100-ton Marauder IIs of any line regiment, and years later fielding the most OmniMechs and Clan-tech equipped 'mechs. Alpha Regiment truly served as the vanguard of the Dragoons throughout its existence.
