Overview[edit]

The One Hundred Ninety-ninth Dragoon Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the LXVII Corps, Twentieth Army[1], to an undisclosed district within the Periphery and continued to operate in the Periphery during the Periphery Uprising.[3] The 199th survived the war and the Hegemony Campaign, to be absorbed by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns.[3] By the time the 199th defected to the AFFS in 2785 it had become a part of the Eighteenth Army. When the AFFS recruited the surviving battalion of the 199th, they merged it into the Third Ceti Hussars, a regiment founded in 2783 when the AFFS recruited a battalion from the 250th BattleMech Division. Also recruited into the Third Ceti Hussars at the same time as the surviving elements of the 199th was a battalion from another SLDF command, the 396th Dragoon Regiment.[2]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Dragoon regiment the 199th would have been composed primarily of heavy to assault 'Mechs, tanks and hovercraft.[4]
