Overview[edit]

The 112th Royal Hussar Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army. It was one of the SLDF's Royal units, which consisted of troops from the Terran Hegemony using advanced equipment.

History[edit]

The Regiment received their nickname in 2641 after some black humor in the wake of a training accident that killed Joseph Cameron. His 'Mech stepped on an improperly set Vibrabomb that blew its leg off, as Joseph attempted to eject his system failed killing him instantly.[1]

In 2763, the unit was assigned, as a part of the X Corps, First Army, to the Terran Military Region but was expecting a transfer to the Periphery in 2674.[2] With the increasing tension at this time it was subsequently transferred to District 1 of the Lyran Commonwealth Military Region by 2765.[3] The 112th suffered heavy losses in the Hegemony Campaign, and was disbanded in 2784.[3]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Hussar regiment the 112th would have been composed primarily of medium to heavy 'Mechs, tanks and hovercraft.[4]
