History[edit]

From their time with the Star League Defense Force, through the Succession Wars until the present day, this unit has been the core of every single larger campaign which included more than one Lancers regiment. The sheer mass of the unit frightened their opponents sometimes into retreat rather than face the overwhelming force. The unit has defended the Capellan March with the other Illician regiements for the last 60 years.

The Fourth and Twenty-first Rangers assaulted Gei-Fu with orders to destroy the Third Capellan Defense Force. After the mission was successfully completed, the 4th Rangers faced Renshield’s Dragoons on Hexare. The Capellan Confederation Armed Forces unit forced the mercenaries to retreat.

After the end of the Jihad, the Fourth Illician Rangers were stationed on Montour, a world along the Federated Suns-Taurian Concordat border.[1]

Officers[edit]

Colonel Alicia Ramaley has led the regiment for the last twenty years after a time loaned out to the Armed Forces of the Federated Commonwealth.

Tactics[edit]

2 heavy battalions hold the enemy in line and one medium weight battalion probes for weak spots or executes flanking attacks.
