|Unit Profile (as of 3067)|
|CO||Colonel Jeffrey "Fred" Morgan|
The 13th Stalking Horse were formed in 3064 from former Ceti Hussars members and later joined by soldiers from every other House. One of the founders had good connections to the Wolf's Dragoons and Jaime Wolf. The support was essential for the build up. As a sign of gratitude for the help, they joined the AMC together with the Wild Geese. The command battle against the Word of Blake and forces loyal to Katherine Steiner-Davion.
In 3069 contract with the AFFC expired and they left the FedSun for Galatea to open new recruiting offices about to expand the AMC after the loss of the Wolf's Dragoons. It was on the 8th of December 3069 that the 13th struck at the Free Worlds League world of Talitha. The 13th took the fight to the WoB in 3071. On Spica they, together with the Wild Geese, faced furious defenders and retreated after heavy losses.
The 13th Stalking Horse were a part of a Regulan task force led by the Fourth Regulan Hussars and sent to attack Gibson in August 3073, were destroyed at the hands of the Forty-ninth and Fifty-second Shadow Divisions. A number of units other units were also destroyed completely, including the Wild Geese, but some survivors managed to escape by DropShip after the Wild Geese sold themselves to buy time. With the Regulan ground offensive firmly defeated, Word of Blake WarShips appeared in-system and shattered the Regulan naval forces, with only a few survivors escaping.
