History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

The Thirteenth Avalon Hussars was one of the more specialized regiments within the Avalon Hussars during the Star League era. Unusually for a primarily BattleMech formation, the Thirteenth specialized in underwater combat, and many of the troops of the Thirteenth had gone so far as to field-modify their rides to mount more energy weapons as a consequence.[2]

First Succession War[edit]

When the First Succession War erupted, the Thirteenth were stationed on Xhosa VII. The Thirteenth were subsequently destroyed during the War, one of seven Avalon Hussars regiments to be wiped out during the thirty-five year conflict.[1]

Officers[edit]

Tactics[edit]

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.[2]

Composition History[edit]
