Fourth Succession War[edit]

The Second was strengthened by the transfer of the best soldiers from the First and Third Lancers in 3022, but was defeated on Procyon in 3029 by vastly superior numbers. The Second's Commanding Officer, Colonel Jenny Twofeathers dueled Lord Ridzik, trading her life to allow her unit to escape.[1]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

Around the same time as Operation Bulldog, the Second Sirian Lancers liberated worlds of the Sirian Holds from the crazed Alexander Gyrn. Though equally as critical of the Captain General and Free Worlds League, instead of getting into fights with other units the Second took a different tack: Any soldier not born in or a citizen of the Sirian Concordance was transferred out of the unit. This led to a sharp drop in the number of qualified soldiers, but they were quickly replaced by new recruits.[2]

Jihad[edit]

In October 3068 'Mechs of the Second Sirian Lancers landed on Skye in retaliation for the death of Helen Thrall. They faced several units of Skye Rangers and were driven offworld.[3] This attack led directly to the Bolan Province invading the Free Worlds League.[4]

Officers[edit]

Colonel Jenny Twofeathers was the Commanding Officer in 3025[5]. For her stand on Procyon, Captain-General Janos Marik inducted her into the Marik Hall of Heroes.[1]

As of 3050 to 3059 the Commanding Officer was Colonel Davis Csencsics, a 3038 graduate of the Allison MechWarrior Institute, and he was still in command in 3067.[6][1][7]

Tactics[edit]

The unit used night operations and stealth tactics extensively to surprise their enemy.[1]
