History[edit]

The Thirty-second Recon Regiment was originally a SLDF unit raised in 2765 for special operations. It took part in the assault of Terra and in 2780 was assigned to the 312th Battle Brigade. In 2784 it's commanding officer General Gael led the Regiment to Bryant and its new life as mercenaries.[1] Speculation also exits that the new mercenary unit was originally the 167th Light Horse Regiment however this remains unconfirmed.[2]

Their name is also their mission, specialized in recon, raiding and harassing tasks. The unit formed the original command element of the entire Lexington Combat Group and as a result LCG's independent command Battalion is always attached to the Thirty-second separated. [1]

The Thirty-second spent much of the early 31st century engaged in the Capellan March and acquired a great deal of experience dealing with cross-border raids. In 3038 they were stationed on Lindsay later moving to Hyaite at the start of the War of '39.[3] By 3054 the Regimant had returned to Lindsay.[4] During the FedCom Civil War the Thirty-second saw action first on the world of Brockway and then on Panpour.[1]

In Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE the Thirty-second was moved from Midale to Flintoft. Though this would have allowed them to respond to a TDF incursion on New Syrtis or the Pleides Cluster, the real problem was that the CCAF raided Ridgebrook. The 1st McCarron's Armored Cavalry and Prefectorate Guard landed on Ridgebrook, and the Thirty-second moved to respond. Unfortunately the CCAF strike was a feint, and the Thirty-second was stranded at Ridgebrook while New Syrtis was raided.[5]

Officers[edit]

Colonel later Lieutenant General Lochan Gael was the last Star League commanding officer and the first to command the Thirty-second as a mercenary force. General Gael was killed during the fall of Bryant in the First Succession War.[1]

Colonel Irina Gant led the Regiment until her death on Panpour in February 3065 after which the unit was led by Colonel Jules Boruzescu.

Tactics[edit]

The unit prefers terrain with the maximum of cover and uses its eletronic warfare equipment for ambushes and assaults. The 2476th Tactical Fighter Wing trains in ground support and precision strikes.
