Formation[edit]

The Concordat Cuirassiers were originally a Star League Defense Force command, the Thirty-fifth Dragoon Regiment. Having survived the Amaris Civil War, the Thirty-fifth chose to not join General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus; instead, the Thirty-fifth chose to join one of the Periphery states,[1] signing on with the Taurian Concordat in 2784. The Taurian Defense Force re-designated the Hussars as the Concordat Cuirassiers.[2]

The unit's most noted actions during this era was in late thirty-first century against Federation Suns. The Cuirassiers would clashes between 2995 to 3020 with Capellan March forces lead by Michael Hasek-Davion. During this time period they were known hatred for Federated Sun troops, so far they would refuse to take prisoners Davion forces.[3]
