The Fifty-first Dragoon Regiment was a part of the Hegemony Armed Forces and later the Star League Defense Force.


When Ian Cameron declared himself Director-General of the Terran Hegemony, elements of the Fifty-first Dragoons mutinied. On September 29th, 2549 they left their barracks and seized control of Geneva[1], particularly the Hegemony Congress, Palace of the Director-General, and several other government buildings.[2] This action (later known as the September Revolt) only lasted for ten days before forces loyal to the Director-General took control of the situation. The leaders of the mutiny, including members of the Fifty-first, were tried and sentenced. The unit as a whole, however, was spared destruction.[3][4]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the XXI Corps[5], First Army, to the Terran Military Region and then transferred to District 1 of the Capellan Confederation Military Region by 2765, to take part in the New Vandenberg Uprising.[6] The Fifty-first was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[6]


As an SLDF Dragoon regiment the 51st would have been composed primarily of heavy to assault 'Mechs, tanks and hovercraft.[7]
