[edit] 4th Succession War

Prior to the Fourth Succession War the 41st was based on David. They were deployed elsewhere during the start of the Fourth Succession War, and the 12th Deneb Light Cavalry garrisoned David. The 41st returned to David, and helped the 12th Deneb Light Cavalry drive the 9th Dieron Regulars off-world.[1]

[edit] Clan Invasion

The 41st was destroyed on Planting during the Clan Invasion.[2] They avoided using static defenses, instead luring elements of Clan Wolf's Beta Galaxy into a series of ambushes that inflicted heavy losses. The Hussars were so successful that the Clan commander had to break his bid to destroy the unit.[3]

[edit] Operation Guerrero

After Operation Guerrero, Victor Steiner-Davion ordered the reconstitution of the 41st. They took up station on Benet III. Unfortunately they didn't receive much in the way of support from the High Command after Katherine Steiner-Davion took power. Instead of the standard supporting regiments common to an RCT, the 41st only had two battalions of armor support and a single wing of AeroSpace Fighters.[2]

[edit] Operation Bulldog
