|Sixteenth Avalon Hussars|
|Unit Profile (as of 2765)|
|Nickname||The Drop Bears|
|Parent Formation||Avalon Hussars|
Star League Era
During the Star League era Sixteenth Avalon Hussars were known for being able to load into their DropShips in considerably less time than the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns average - sometimes managing to load in just a third of the time another regiment would take. This was a result of the extensive training the Hussars undertook alongside their DropShip crews; the Sixteenth were also known for specialising at making orbital insertions and excelling at launching rapid strikes against enemy targets.
During the Star League era all of the Avalon Hussars were required to focus on being both flexible and mobile, with every regiment required to be capable of deploying within eight hours, although many of the Hussars struggled to actually achieve this. The Sixteenth were experts at launching rapid strikes using massed firepower.
