Independent Commands - AFFS
The 1st Argyle Lancers is one of several SLDF units to join the AFFS after the departure of General Aleksandr Kerensky. The unit is well equipped, but is dependent on assistance due to lack of interstellar transportation.
In actuality an upgraded garrison, the First Aragon Borderers are stationed on the Capellan March border world of New Aragon. The unit has been deployed off world, but has been most effective as a counter-insurgency force and short-range strike force.
Federated Suns Armored Cavalry
The personal project of Prince Ian Davion, the First Federated Suns Armored Cavalry is a medium-weight formation that specializes in speed and firepower. The unit has seen almost constant combat through raiding missions on the Capellan border.
Federated Suns Lancers
The first unit raised under the banner of the Federated Commonwealth, the 1st FedCom RCT saw action from the Fourth Succession War through to the conclusion of the FedCom Civil War and disbandment of the FedCom Corps, with the intact unit renamed 1st Federated Suns Lancers RCT.
The 1st Kestrel Grenadiers were the household guard of House Cunningham. After the Fourth Succession War, the Grenadiers received Capellan defectors assigned by Prince Hanse Davion, bringing the unit to regimental combat team strength. After training quickly, the unit has deployed twice, against the Draconis Combine and Clan Smoke Jaguar. Both times, the Grenadiers have demonstrated their elite status.
The 1st Capellan Dragoons are the traditional guardians of the Duke of Kathil. Raised from mercenaries and Capellan defectors, the AFFS has never truly trusted the Dragoons. The Dragoons were sold by the Hasek family early in the 31st century, and have been loaned back to the Duke of Kathil for reasons unknown. The regiment was effectively destroyed during the FedCom Civil War.
The 1st Kittery Borderers emerged as an elite garrison during the Succession Wars. Originally a bolstered garrison, the Borderers have participated in raiding the Capellan Confederation for quite some time. The traditional enemies of the Borderers were the St. Ives Armored Cavalry; despite the friendship between the St. Ives Compact and the Federated Suns, it took 30 years before the Borderers had let go of traditional hatreds. No longer an elite unit, the Borderers were the personal vanguard of Kuan-Yin Allard Liao during her mercy missions to the Compact.
