|Parent Formation||XXXVII Corps|
The 159th Hussar Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.
In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the XXXVII Corps, Fourth Army, to District 3 of the Federated Suns Military Region, but was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery in 2765.. The 159th joined the rebels during the Periphery Uprising, defecting to the Taurian Concordat. The 159th was one of three SLDF regiments to defect to the Concordat during the Uprising - the others being ad-hoc regiments from the Thirty-sixth Infantry Division and the 161st Mechanized Infantry Division - and was the only one to survive the Uprising. In 2784 the Taurian Defense Force re-designated the Hussars as the Red Chasseurs.
