Fourth Succession War[edit]

Acting on information provided by Fadre Singh, the Third Proserpina Hussars and Fifth Galedon Regulars pursued the families of Wolf's Dragoons as they evacuated Draconis Combine space. However, the Hussars and Regulars who were assigned to the duty were shamed by it, and used the skill and valor of a battalion of Dragoon cadets as an excuse to let the families escape to Cassius.[1]

On September 17 3028 the Twelfth Galedon Regulars Regiment landed on Wapakoneta alongside the Third Proserpina Hussars. After a nine month war against two deeply entrenched regiments of Wolf's Dragoons the Combine troops finally gained control of the planet.[2] The Third Hussars faced the Fourth Provisional Company of Wolf's Dragoons.[3]

Following the lull in major offensives in early 3029, a number of new offensives began as the Fourth Succession War entered its second year. In early July 3029 Coordinator Takashi Kurita moved to Irurzun from Luthien and took more of an interest in combat actions on the border between the Draconis Combine and Federated Suns than he had earlier in the war, where his attention had been almost completely focused on Wolf's Dragoons. Ten days after arriving on Irurzun Takashi had drafted and launched a new offensive aimed at securing more worlds from the Federated Suns, and Lima was one of those worlds. Attacked by the Third Proserpina Hussars, the planetary militia on McComb were swiftly defeated as the DCMS inexorably annexed the Galtor Thumb region.[4]

War of 3039[edit]

The Third Proserpina Hussars faced the First Crucis Lancers on Capra, and were soundly defeated. The action against the Federated unit cost the Hussars three JumpShips.[5]

Clan Invasion[edit]

During the Clan Invasion, the the Third faced the Smoke Jaguars on Kiamba. After Hussar Aerospace assets destroyed a DropShip, the Hussars had hopes of winning. This confidence only increased when the Jaguars fell into a trap in Hecate's Swamp set by the Third Hussars.[5] Unfortunately the Jaguars responded to these attacks with unmatched ferocity, and the Third lost two battalions in the fight. The unit was rebuilt, using the remaining troops and equipment from the destroyed Fourth Proserpina Hussars, as well as new recruits from the University of Proserpina and Dieron District Gymnasium.[6]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

The Third Proserpina Hussars landed on Asgard as part of Operation BULLDOG.[7]

Jihad[edit]

During the Jihad the Third Proserpina Hussars were transferred to Kiamba to dissuade Ghost Bear adventurism. Once it became clear the Ghost Bears wouldn't attack the Combine, the Third redeployed to Niles to protect the DropShip yards in that system. This meant that by the end of the Jihad the Third was actually closer to full-strength than many Combine regiments. In the aftermath of the Jihad the Third began petitioning the High Command for permission to attack the Dragon's foes.[8]

Officers[edit]

Prior to 3025 the unit was commanded by Colonel Richard Ahrmram.[9]

From 3025 to 3028, the commanding officer was Sho-sho Bruce Lee Bernstein[10][2].

As of 3050, the commanding officer was Tai-sa Richard Weston[11].

As of 3054, the commanding officer was Tai-sa Gregg Weston.[12]

As of 3059, the commanding officer was Tai-sa Angus McTeague.[6]

As of 3067, the commanding officer was Tai-sa Elliot Taharaga.[13]

- Chu-sa Kent Shou, who commands the 2nd Battalion, is the only senior officer to survive the destruction of the 4th Hussars.[6]

Tactics[edit]

The Third has long excelled at hit-and-run tactics. Following their near destruction on Kiamba, they have begun greater training in the traditional "stand-and-deliver" tactics of the DCMS.[6]
