Overview[edit]

The Thirty-fifth Dragoon Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.[2]

History[edit]

The Thirty-fifth was an independent regiment within LII Corps, Second Army, and in 2764 was assigned to District 1 of the Federated Suns Military Region. The Thirty-fifth was deployed into District 2 of the FSMR along with a number of other units from LII Corps in 2765 following the New Vandenberg Uprising and the subsequent Periphery-wide uprising to backfill for units deployed into the Periphery Military Region.[2]

After surviving the Hegemony Campaign, the regiment didn't follow General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus; instead, the Thirty-fifth chose to join one of the Periphery states,[2] signing on with the Taurian Concordat in 2784. The Taurian Defense Force re-designated the Hussars as the Concordat Cuirassiers.[1]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Dragoon regiment the Thirty-Fifth would have been composed primarily of heavy to assault 'Mechs, plus tanks and hovercraft.[3]
