The Ninetieth Royal Light Horse Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army. It was one of the SLDF's Royal units, which consisted of troops from the Terran Hegemony.


In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the IX Corps, Second Army, to District 1 of the Federated Suns Military Region and then transferred to District 2 as part of the New Vandenberg Uprising.[1]. The Ninetieth survived the Hegemony Campaign, and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.[1]


As an SLDF Light Horse regiment the Ninetieth would have been composed of light to medium vehicles backed up by at least two Recon companies composed of 'Mechs designed for information gathering in addition to any regular 'Mechs within the regiment.[2]
