Fourth Succession War[edit]

With their best troops transferred to the Second Lancers in 3022, the Third was unable to hold Megrez against Lyran forces in 3027, although they did return, with mercenary support, three months later to recapture the planet.[1]

The Third spent the majority of the Fourth Succession War garrisoning Shiloh.[1]

Andurien Secession[edit]

Between 3040 and 3044 the Third rebuilt their troops and equipment. This included taking in some former Andurien troops.[1]

Operation Guerrero[edit]

The Third defeated militia forces on Castor during Operation Guerrero in autumn 3057.[1]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

Around the same time as Operation Bulldog, the Third Sirian Lancers liberated worlds of the Sirian Holds from the crazed Alexander Gyrn. In 3067 the Third served as the repository of all Sirian Lancers who weren't citizens of the Sirian Concordance. Though considered "outsiders" by the other two Sirian Lancer units, the Third Lancers shared their comrade's disappointment and distrust of the Free Worlds League and Captain General.[2]
