Andurien Secession[edit]

Attacked Lopez with the First Free Worlds Guards and the Thirtieth Marik Militia in 3038, where they wore down the heavier 6th Defenders of Andurien with raids, prompting the rebel unit to surrender in October of that year when combined losses made further effective resistance impossible. The effort also cost the Fourth much of its strength, and they spent the rest of the war guarding a supply base on Deschenes.[1]

Operation Guerrero[edit]

Took Wasat in conjunction with the Thirteenth Marik Militia, Second Sirian Lancers and the mercenary Twenty-first Centauri Lancers.[1]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

In 3067 the Fourth Hussars were assigned to Federal control. This annoyed them but they had little recourse.[2] They were stationed on Wasat.[3]


The Jihad saw the Fourth Hussars come through with relatively light losses. After pledging their support to the Duchy of Oriente, they restricted their activities to raids and avoiding the heavy fighting. As a result they form the core of the Duchy's defense in the post-Jihad era. In 3079 they were posted on Maritgues.[4]

The Fourth Hussars were horrified to learn about Thomas Halas deception and have transferred their dislike for the federal government of the Free Worlds League to him. Though they held him in low regard, the Fourth was truly loyal to the Grand Duchy of Oriente. The Duchy's commanders knew this, and kept the Fourth on the rolls as a unit to inspire other DDOCFH units to perform to the best of their ability despite their personal feelings.[5] They were the garrison force for Les Halles.[6]

Dark Age[edit]

The Fourth Hussars raided Shuen Wan in early 3117. They fought elements of Kraken Unleashed and Warrior House Tsang Xiao. The CCAF forces destroyed a company of the Hussar's raiding 'Mechs and forced the Hussars to withdraw from the world.[7]


As of 3025 the unit is commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Geddy Carver.[8]

As of 3050 to 3059 the commanding officer was Colonel Sherrie Dragoo.[9][10][1]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was Colonel Fleur Lewis.[3]

As of 3085 the commanding officer is Colonel Shannon Dolier.[6]


This regiment use bad environmental conditions as cover for the mobile fighting style in their light machines.[1]
