Unit Description[edit]

The Lyran 2nd Armored Brigade is a Combat Vehicle oriented combined arms formation employed by the Lyran Commonwealth.

History[edit]

Poulsbo[edit]

While assigned to Poulsbo in 3028, the unit was positioned in the city of Silverdale where it was to defend the Bangor Military base from an incoming Marik raid. The Brigade was placed in the city, while the 1st Regulan Hussars made their landings. Once elements of the Regulans entered town, the Brigade began its counter attack, leading the Lyran defenders. It then sent its VTOL Lance in flanking action on outskirts of the city, while elements of the Hussars retreated.

Among the 1st Regulan Hussars was the Rolling Thunder Company, which along with other units inflicted considerable amounts of damage against the Brigade and its elements while they retreated off planet.[1]
