|Twelfth Avalon Hussars|
|Unit Profile (as of 2765)|
|Parent Formation||Avalon Hussars|
Star League Era
The Twelfth Avalon Hussars and its sister regiment, the Eleventh Avalon Hussars, were both technically light horse regiments rather than hussar regiments during the Star League era. Equipped with lighter BattleMechs and augmented by a conventional aircraft detachment, the Twelfth was a skilled reconnaissance formation. The Twelfth was the Avalon Hussars regiment stationed on New Avalon when the Amaris Civil War broke out in the Terran Hegemony; tradition dictated that one regiment from the brigade should be stationed on New Avalon at all times, and the various regiments rotated the duty, each taking a five-year tour. The Twelfth served on New Avalon until 2770, at which point the Thirteenth rotated in.
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 Twelfth was supported by an aerospace wing, although the wing was primarily attached to the Eleventh to provide ground support.
