|Unit Profile (as of 3145)|
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.
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.
