History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

The Twelfth Andurien Hussars was one of five regiments of the Andurien Hussars brigade to be recruited between 2765 and 2785; two of the others, the Eighth and Ninth Andurien Hussars were mustered around personnel recruited from the Star League Defense Force, but the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth were locally recruited.[1]

In May 2789 Captain-General Kenyon Marik launched a large-scale invasion of the Andurien Commonality of the Capellan Confederation, beginning with dropping the Fourth and Eleventh Atrean Dragoons and four regiments of mercenaries onto Andurien, after a brief but bloody naval battle above the planet. Faced with six regiments supported by heavy aerospace forces and the punishing artillery of Baldwin's Cobras Heavy Brigade, the defending forces - the Andurien Heavy Guard, and the Twelfth, which was an untested unit at the time - crumbled; the campaign was brief and one-sided. A week after the landings, Andurien was under the control of the Free Worlds League again.[2]
