Parent Formation Star League Defense Force
Formed unknown


The Two Hundred Sixty-first Dragoon Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.


In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the LXV Corps, Nineteenth Army, of the Periphery Military Region but was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery to take part in the Periphery Uprising by 2765.[1]. They were one of the independent units that rotated through the Perdition Union of the Taurian Concordat, supporting Corps units or covering worlds that lacked any SLDF presence.[2]

The 261st survived the war and the Hegemony Campaign, and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.[1]


As an SLDF Dragoon regiment the 261st would have been composed primarily of heavy to assault 'Mechs, tanks and hovercraft.[3]


The history of Aleksandr Kerensky's early career places him in command of the 261st Royal Dragoon Regiment as a colonel stationed in the Taurian Concordat, until his promotion in 2731.[4] This is presumably an error citing this unit as Royal and they are in fact the same units.
