Stapleton's Iron Hand was a regiment in service to the Capellan Confederation up until the Fourth Succession War.

History[edit]

During the Fourth Succession War the unit took moderate casualties in the failed defense of Tikonov. During that fighting, they faced elements of the 6th Crucis Lancers.[1] The remnants became later part of the 2nd Republican.

During the Fourth Succession War Pavel Ridzik wanted to move Stapleton's Iron Hand up and use it as the core of a counterattack into the Federated Suns. This proved to be impossible.[2]
