Overview[edit]

The Two Hundred Eighty-eighth Hussar 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 LXIV Corps, Eighteenth Army, to an undisclosed district within the Periphery.[2] There they worked to patrol the new colonies of the Outworlds Alliance and protect the Department of Mega-Engineering projects. When not there, they were on New Dawn or Cerberus training and refitting.[1]

The 288th survived the Periphery Uprising and the Hegemony Campaign, to be absorbed by the Free Worlds League Military by 2784.[2]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Hussar regiment the 288th would have been composed primarily of medium to heavy 'Mechs, tanks and hovercraft.[3]
