First Succession War
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.
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.
