9th Avalon Hussars
|Ninth Avalon Hussars|
|Unit Profile (as of 2765)|
|Nickname||The Hounds of Cerberus |
|Parent Formation||Avalon Hussars |
The Ninth Avalon Hussars had the unfortunate distinction of being the first new Avalon Hussars regiment to be commissioned because of the destruction of another Hussars regiment. The Third Avalon Hussars - known as "Cerberus' Fury" - fell in battle in the 2360s, and the survivors from the Third were incorporated into the new Ninth regiment. With the assistance of those survivors from the Third, the Ninth went on to earn a fierce reputation, along with the nickname "The Hounds of Cerebus", and were active throughout the Age of War and Star League era.
During the Star League era all of the Avalon Hussars were required to focus on being both flexible and mobile, with every regiment required to be capable of deploying within eight hours, although many of the Hussars struggled to actually achieve this. The Ninth was supported by an aerospace wing, although the wing was primarily attached to the Ninth to provide ground support.
During the Star League era the Ninth was highly proficient at operating in hellish conditions - conditions that included raging infernos. As a consequence, while the Ninth was stationed on the planet Cohay it frequently deployed to fight the forest fires that were a recurring feature of dry seasons on the planet's nothern continent.
