History[edit]

The First Chesterton Voltigueurs was formed around 2790 by former soldiers of the Chesterton region who fled after the planet's capture by Federated Suns forces in 2750.[1]

First Succession War[edit]

The Voltigeurs first tasted combat fighting against House Kurita on Rio and Ronel in first half of the 2800's.[1]

Later on Westphalia they defended the planet against the Freeman's Fanatics mercenary unit then in Steiner employ.[1]

Third Succession War[edit]

In 2944 the Voltigeurs met House Marik forces on Epsilon Eridani and suffered serious losses, but managed to capture a Leopard DropShip and eventually won the day.[1]

The unit was badly mauled in 2987 while defending Tikonov against the attacking House Davion.[1] In the end the invaders were defeated by the slimmest of margins.

Fourth Succession War[edit]

Defense of Tikonov[edit]

The Voltigeurs took moderate casualties in the failed defense of New Moscow on Tikonov when they battled the 3rd Crucis Lancers in October of 3026. [2]

Operation Riposte[edit]

All three regiments of the Chesterton Voltigeurs took part in the assault on New Aragon. The 1st suffered heavy losses attacking a supply depot and eventually surrendered when escape proved impossible.[3]

Officers[edit]

As of 3025, the commanding officer was Colonel Alana Dickersenn.[1]
