The Second Kell Hounds Regiment was formed from a collection of smaller mercenary units. Each of these smaller units had been led by a former member of the Kell Hounds, and when Morgan Kell took command in 3028 these former Hounds returned. By using these smaller units and training for a year, the Second rapidly developed into an elite command. 3050 found the Second Kell Hounds assigned to garrison Ambergrist.[1]

The Second participated in the Battle of Luthien, helping to drive off the Clan forces. They also participated in Operation Bulldog, taking Yamarovka.

In 3067 they were based on Arc-Royal.[2]


As of 3050 to 3067 Lieutenant Colonel Scott Bradley is the commanding officer of the 2nd regiment.[1][3][2]


The regiment prefers to fight at night. Every battalion has a specialized 3rd company.[3]

The Greyhounds 3rd Company is specialized in Zero G combat.

The Wolfhounds 3rd Company can operate for a long time without support.

The Junkyard Dogs 3rd Company can fight under environmental conditions where others will not fight.


The regiment can count on a experienced technical staff of the Arc-Royal MechWorks and Clan Wolf in Exile.
