History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

The Thirteenth Liao Lancers were raised as part of the Liao Lancers brigade. As was traditional with the Liao Lancers, approximately one third of their force consisted of citizens of their name world, in this case Jonathan. There is some evidence that suggests the Thirteenth was formed after the repeal of Council Edict 2650, and was created by promoting a Home Guard unit from Paches to the Lancers brigade.[2]

Unlike most of their sister units, they were not stationed on their namesake world in 2765, but on Bell.[2]

First Succession War[edit]

In late 2787 the Thirteenth deployed in support of the Seventh Tikonov Lancers for the invasion of New Florence, a former Terran Hegemony system that had been claimed by the Federated Suns. The Armed Forces of the Federated Suns defenders had been anticipating an attack by troops from the Draconis Combine, and when the Seventh and Thirteenth invaded the AFFS troops found themselves both outnumbered and unprepared for the hit, run and harass tactics used by the Lancers. New Florence had been conquered by November 2787.[3]

The Thirteenth were casualties of the First Succession War; by 2821 the regiment had been destroyed and was no longer an active combat command.[1]
