History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The Homeworld of the 7th Confederation Reserve Cavalry is on Altorra and Brixtana. Experimental unit, created in 3058, to see if it was possible to integrate Capellan troops with Magistracy of Canopus recruits who had attended a regional training center. The Maskirovka put the unit under surveillance in 3061, and the unit was still not declared combat ready when the ceasefire went into effect at the end of the Capellan Civil War. [2]

Xin Sheng Campaign[edit]

Stationed on Altorra in 3065, when the Magistracy of Canopus pulled all of its troops from the Confederation, the Capellan Forces watched the Seventh with great interest. The unit contained so many Magistracy officers and warriors that the Maskirovka had warned the CCAF of possible massive defections. To the Seventh’s credit, not one warrior requested transfer back to the Canopian military.[3]

Jihad[edit]

During Operation: Sovereign Justice the Seventh faced off against a regiment of the Lexington Combat Group (Marie's Golden Hammers). For an untested unit they performed well, bringing the mercenary unit to a halt several times before being relieved by more experienced Capellan commands. They then took up stations on Old Kentucky, Campertown, and Tsinghai.[4]

In 3085 the unit had redeployed to Sakhalin.[5]

Dark Age[edit]

In the Capellan Crusades, the Seventh faced the VI Principes Guards on Wei and crushed the Republic unit.[6] They later relocated to Senshi, where they faced Kai Allard-Liao and the V Hastati Sentinels.[7]


The Seventh had only suffered a few casualties in their recent clashes with the RAF, and are deployed on Bromhead.[1][8]

Officers[edit]

As of 3063 the commanding officer was Sang-shao Orvus Toshadi.[2]

As of 3067 to 3085 the commanding officer was Sao-shao Georgia Shippe.[9][5]

As of 3145 the commanding officer was Sang-shao Lynette Ortega.[8]

Tactics[edit]

As of 3063, the 7th is too new to have developed any signature tactics.[2]

During the fighting against Marie's Golden Hammers on Housekarle the Seventh became skilled in timing wave attacks where a battalion would engage the enemy then fade away as another battalion attacked. The Seventh used these tactics to provide a constant stream of new attackers against an enemy unit. This "rapid stream" technique is undergoing refinement by the Seventh.[10]

As of 3145, in their ongoing refinement of their personal "rapid stream" technique, the Seventh CRC have begun to vary the timing of their hit and fade attacks in the hopes of catching the enemy off-guard.[1]
