|Parent Formation||Rim Worlds Army|
The 4th Amaris Dragoons engaged the Rim Republican Army's rebellion during the Reunification War. On the 23rd of April 2575 Gregory Amaris ordered the 4th Amaris Dragoons in to disrupt a massive worker's strike on Apollo, a strike which had been sparked by Amaris' issuing the Manchester Directive. The 4th were unprepared for the order and for the scale of the strike; they were quickly overwhelmed, and the workers declared that Amaris' use of the military to try and prevent their strike constituted a breach of the public trust in his office. The failure of the 4th to disrupt the strike led Amaris to then order the 7th Amaris Legionnaires and 8th Amaris Fusiliers in to disrupt the strike where the 4th had failed; both regiments promptly defected to the opposition, leaving Amaris and his surviving loyalist forces to take refuge in island states and ultimately led to civil war in the Rim Worlds Republic.
During the next two decades of attacks against Gregory Amaris, the Fourth would stop repeated rebel attacks on Amaris' estate. These actions led to their being decorated by the First Consul and becoming an unofficial part of the Amaris Household Guard. In 2581 they were stationed on Apollo. They would still be on Apollo in 2596, however they were disarmed and rendered combat-ineffective by the SLDF.
In 2716 the 4th Amaris Dragoons were assigned to the Star's End region of the Rim Worlds Republic, and would be deployed on Gustrell alongside the 2nd Lyran Guards in the aftermath of the Gustrell Massacre in 2746.
It was the first unit to arrive in the Terran Hegemony after Richard Cameron asked Stefan Amaris's help in garrisoning the Hegemony, earning them their unit nickname, "The Far Guard".. The unit employed a nuclear device to destroy the Black Watch Highlanders, a portion of the First Lord's bodyguard unit, during the takeover of Terra.
