The fighters have participated in many conventional battles fought against the Sri Lankan Forces including Battle of Pooneryn, Operation Jayasikurui, Battle of Mullaitivu, Battle of Kilinochchi and Second Battle of Elephant Pass.[2][3]

Its motto is: "We will go anywhere. We will win anything". This brigade was named in the memory of Sampukuddi Pathmanthan (alias Captain Jeyanthan) from Morakkondanchenai, Batticaloa District who died in 1991 during an attack on a Sri Lankan naval patrol vessel. It has been claimed a person by the alias Bhavaan is the chief of this brigade.[4]
