Welcome to the page of the 78thRSB.
History of the regiment.
Path to today

Spoiler
  • The regiment was originally formed as the 4thKGL sometime before november of 2017 where the regiment reformed into the 9thSR.
  • The regiment then on the 8th of April 2018 decided to disband, a few member joined the 65thFLB and stayed there.
  • Around july 2018 the 65thFLB disbanded and there was no regiment and most people just went and played other games.
  • Then in august 2018 the No9 was formed with many of the former members of both the 9thSR and 65thFLB.
  • The No9 was disbanded on 11th of February the regiment was in limbo as both the Col and Lt-Col left the regiment.
  • So we gave the regiment a new spin and became the 78thRSB.
