23rd Robinson Chevaliers
|Twenty-third Robinson Chevaliers|
|Unit Profile (as of 2765)|
|Nickname||The Eagle Fliers|
|Parent Formation||Robinson Chevaliers|
The Twenty-third Robinson Chevaliers was one of the regiments within the Robinson Chevaliers brigade of the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns and took its unit name from a chivalric order that existed during the pre-industrial history of Terra; this was standard practise amongst units of the Robinson Chevaliers that formed prior to the massive expansion of the AFFS following the repeal of the Council Edict of 2650 in 2752. In the case of the Twenty-third the regiment was known as "The Eagle Fliers"; members of the Twenty-third identified closely with their chosen order, and even the newest recruits were expected to be able to name significant individuals and events from the history of the order.
The Twenty-third used excellent tactics for fighting in urban and mountainous terrain, and ensured that every BattleMech in the regiment was jump capable - from the Wasps assinged to the newest recruit to the Highlander piloted by the commanding officer.
