FedCom Civil War[edit]

During the FedCom Civil War, the 15th faced off against the pro-Victor 5th Crucis Lancers. The triggering event was the loss of a 15th DLC Combat Command. Thinking that the 5th Crucis Lancers were responsible, the 15th attacked. The 5th Lancers destroyed their supplies however, and after three weeks the 15th DLC had to withdraw.[3]

The 15th landed on Algol just in time to see the destruction of the 2nd Republican at the hands of the 12th Vegan Rangers Beta and Gamma regiments. The 12th Vegan Ranger regiments then turned their attention to the 15th DLC, trying to destroy them. The Vegan Rangers were reinforced by the 5th Crucis Lancers, who had followed the 15th Deneb Light Cavalry to Algol. The Deneb Light Cavalry and the other Loyalist regiments slowly began to overwhelm the pro-Victor forces.[4] Unfortunately for the 15th, the 12th Vegan Rangers Alpha regiment arrived on Algol, and tipped the balance of power. The 15th, now reinforced with the survivors of the Republican Guard regiments, left Algol in October.[5]

Arriving on Tikonov, the 15th faced the Davion Assault Guards. The Assault Guards inflicted serious losses on the Light Cavalry unit, forcing them to pull back. The 15th seized Fort Pavel Ridzik and held off Allied forces. Shortly after this the 6th Crucis Lancers surrounded the fort and began bombarding it.[6] After Fort Pavel Ridzik was breached, the 15th DLC evacuated Tikonov and went to Marlette.[7] There they would surrender to Victor's Allied forces.[8][9]


As of 3025, the commanding officer was Marshal Henry Quentin.[10]

As of 3054 to 3062, the commanding officer was Hauptmann General Michael Lipstein, he held later the rank of an Marshal.[11][2]


Like the other Deneb Light Cavalry RCTs, the 15th DLC used their superior speed and mobility to outmaneuver their foes, which is rather surprising, since the 15th Deneb Light Cavalry is a heavy 'Mech regiment.[2]
