The Stealthy Tigers were formed as a private unit for the Duke of Tamar. To avoid problems with the LCAF, Archon, and Estates General, the unit was officially a mercenary unit.

History[edit]

The Stealthy Tigers were formed to defend their homeworld, operating under a contract with the LCAF. In 2915 the Stealthy Tigers faced off against the 4th Proserpina Hussars. After seven months of combat, the DCMS unit withdrew.[1]

In the 3040s the unit signed a contract with the FWLM and were loaned to the CCAF during Operation Guerrero. The Tigers fought with the Always Faithful but fail in the conquest attempt of Caph. They remained in the Chaos March and helped in the invasions of Carver V and Hall. The Tigers fought against Critchley's Cavaliers, when their employee launched an invasion for William Baranov. Burton's Brigade were withdrawn by the Allied Mercenary Command and left the Cavaliers as the only opposing force. They must surrender after a failed attempt to overrun the Tigers.[2]

The command signed a contract with WoB during the Jihad. They were accused of having executed AMC POWs in 3067 as well as FWL troops. The unit keep on to defend Hall against all invaders.

It was confirmed by 3081 that the Stealthy Tigers had been wiped out during the Jihad.[3]
