CO: Tai-sa Shih Chou
Average Experience: 3
RAT: House Kurita, House Davion, FMDC, FMU
Force Abilities: During the Initiative Phase, the Genyosha receive a +1 Initiative for each enemy combatant destroyed in the previous turn; they receive a –1 Initiative for every Genyosha unit destroyed in the previous turn.
Notes: The First Genyosha was a heavy regiment commanded by the unit’s second-in-command at the beginning of the struggle, as Hohiro Kurita was on Tharkad. They were augmented by nearly a battalion of survivors from the Fourteenth Sun Zhang Cadre in early February of 3068. By the end of the conflict, the unit had been reduced to two reinforced companies. Sorenson’s Sabres operated as an independent company under nominal command by the Genyosha, used as a flanking and reserve force in larger engagements. The Sabres left Luthien in 3071 and reappeared under Chandrasekhar’s command on Arcturus in 3073.
