Overview[edit]

The Eighty-fourth Hussar Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.

History[edit]

From 2701 onwards it was frequently used as the opposing force in wargames and training exercises for the rest of LII Corps. When not acting as an Opfor in a training exercise, the unit was based on Batavia with LII Corps headquarters.[1]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the LII Corps, Second Army, to District 1 of the Federated Suns Military Region. The unit was originally formed in the Marik Commonwealth of the Free Worlds League.

The Eighty-fourth was then transferred to District 3 by 2765, to take part in the Periphery Uprising.[2] The Eighty-fourth was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]

Composition[edit]

As an SLDF Hussar regiment the Eighty-fourth would have been composed primarily of medium to heavy 'Mechs, tanks and hovercraft.[3]
