21st Illician Rangers
|21st Illician Rangers: Drop-And-Stop|
|Unit Profile (as of 3067)|
|CO||Colonel Aynsley Zibler|
Formed for airborne missions and other special force tasks, in the past the unit included enough Dropships to support a quick relocation. The unit worked closely together with the Star League Defense Force as instructors. During the Succession Wars, they lost most of their sophisticated equipment and reorganized for their new operations. The lancers worked for the AFFS (and later the AFFC) for the last two centuries, and were a feared opponent in the CCAF.
The Twenty-first Rangers and 4th Rangers captured together with other mercs Gei-Fu. The 3rd Capellan Defence Force had no change and were annihillated. Later in the Operation the regiment captured Imalda. The Fifth Capellan Reserve Cavalry with support of the Death Commandos forced the Twenty-first to a retreat.
The Twenty-first specializes in airborne operations and high-risk combat insertions, and regularly performs maneuvers that most others would never consider.
