Third Sian Dragoons
Unit Profile (as of 3145)
Nickname Guan Yu’s Jade Cavalry[1]
Parent Formation Sian Dragoons


The Third Sian Dragoons were frequently used by the Strategios as a rapid strike force that would find a weakness in an enemy line and break through, allowing other Sian Dragoons regiments (like the Second) to drive the enemy from the field. In 2765 they were stationed on Aquagea.[1]

Republic Era[edit]

The Third Sian Dragoons were one of the units re-created as part of the Hidden Lion initiative. Intelligence reports suggest that they were active and undergoing training in 3117. Their main training partners were the Death Commandos and various elements of the Capellan Hussars.

Dark Age[edit]

When they were released as part of Operation GREAT FLOOD, they were one of the first units deployed. They hit Foot Fall and Algot by quickly overrunning the defenders by hiding their 'Mechs in civilian DropShips. They later landed on Halloran V and used artillery to drive the defenders out of their positions. Once the defenders were on the move, the Third Dragoons used their speed to run them down.[2] They were stationed on Shuen Wan in 3145.[3]

On Almach they were prevented from taking the world by the 1st Federated Suns Armored Cavalry.[4]


In 3145 the Third was commanded by Sang-shao Min-Qiang Wang.[3]
