228th Light Horse Regiment
|228th Light Horse Regiment|
|Unit Profile (as of 2764)|
|Parent Formation||LXVII Corps|
The Two Hundred Twenty-eighth Light Horse Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.
In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the LXVII Corps, Twentieth Army, to the Periphery Military Region. After the Twentieth Army was ordered to withdraw from the Rim Worlds Republic, the 228th joined with the 26th Royal CAAN Marines, 232nd Light Horse and 205th Dragoon regiment to form an impromptu Regimental Combat Team. They had deployed more than halfway across the Lyran Commonwealth in pursuit of pirates who were apparently based in the Free Worlds League.
As an SLDF Light Horse regiment the 228th would have been composed of light to medium vehicles backed up by at least two Recon companies composed of 'Mechs designed for information gathering in addition to any regular 'Mechs within the regiment.
