Formed

The Ryuken-hachi regiment were created in the Dark Age era, modeled after the other Ryuken who were created to be trained and adopt the tactics of the Wolf's Dragoons mercenary unit.

History[edit]

The Ryuken-hachi is the newest of the six Ryuken regiments. This regiment has carried on a competition with Beta Regiment of Wolf’s Dragoons to keep pace with them during the invasion of the Federated Suns. So far they have done so, however because of their recklessness and haste both regiments have suffered comparable losses.[1]

Officers[edit]

As of 3145 the commanding officer was Tai-sa Merle Aguilar.[2]

Tactics[edit]

Highly mobile unit tactics, based on teachings of the Wolf's Dragoons. The conventional forces are set in pre battle position for ambushes and rear attacks when the time is right. Combined arms warfare is used with great efficiency.
