After the merging of the Republic into the Ghost Bear Dominion, Clan Ghost Bear would by 3074 would re-organize the KungsArmé into a new Clan oriented military fighting force. The regiment had been cut half and reduced to a Battalion size and tweaked into a Clan Cluster. During the 2nd Kavalleri reconfigured as a Clan Ghost Bear 2nd Line force, much of its original members would under take series of Trials of Position to retain their place in the Cluster. Assigned to the newly formed Polar Galaxy, the unit would soon be redeployed within the Dominion in order to free of Clan frontline Combat units to fight the Word of Blake.[2][3][4]

Ice Hellion Raid of Damian[edit]

In early 3076, Clan Ice Hellion assaulted world Damian after series of raids through the Ghost Bear Dominion. The 2nd Kavalleri's aerospace fighter elements forced the Hellion's DropShips to ground themselves. Despite being under strength, the Kavalleri's ground and aerospace fighter conducted a series hit and run attacks on Clan Ice Hellion warriors in attempt to keep it pinned down until reinforcements to arrive. In course of the fighting outside of the planetary capital, the forest which battle was occurring would be set ablaze as the Kavalleri were taken apart by Hellion forces. Despite that, the Kavalleri's sister clusters 2nd Freeman and 3rd Drakøn successfully destroy the Hellion raiders.[5]

The unit would be moved to Krenice as part of their garrison assignment as of December 3076.[6]

During the Second Combine-Dominion War, the Second was posted to Trondheim in 3100. The Draconis Combine had dispatched the 11th Ghost regiment, supported by the WarShip, DCS Draconis Rift in attempt to take the planet. When the Eleventh landed, the Second sent a request for reinforcements to Rasalhague, and they held defensive positions in the planet's spaceport.
