Age of War[edit]

The original Fourth Tikonov Guards was a unit that fought for the Capellan Confederation during the Age of War. They were apparently destroyed and the Strategios decided not to rebuild the unit.


Numerous resistance groups were formed with Maskirovka assistance following the loss of central authority brought about by Gray Monday. The Streltsy or "Shooters" were drawn from the planetary militias of the recently reformed Tikonov Commonality. The various planetary militia personnel were reequipped from Capellan supply depots and assembled to become the Fourth Tikonov Guards.[1]

The unit was assigned as a reserve regiment of the Tikonov Commonality by 3145.[2]

Operation GREAT FLOOD[edit]

The Fourth Tikonov Guards did not fight in Operation GREAT FLOOD.[1]

Operation CELESTIAL REWARD[edit]

As the unit was still forming by 3145, they did not participate in Operation CELESTIAL REWARD. However, the regiment was performing garrison duties on Mira even while training to act as a team.[1]


In 3145 the commanding officer was Sang-shao Katyusha Isakovsky.[3]


By 3145, the unit has not developed any tactical preferences.

Unit Emblem[edit]

The regimental insignia is a musket crossed with a halberd. Equipment is painted dark green and goldenrod.[1]
