|Unit Profile (as of 3025)|
|Parent Formation||Magistracy Armed Forces|
The brigade has a colorful history of loyal service to Canopus. During the great conflicts like the Reunification War of the Amaris Crises the individual regiments saw a lot of actions. Even with such circumstances the brigade remain loyal and fought against many external threats.
In the Jihad the Canopian Fusiliers defended their worlds with skill, but suffered heavy losses. The First Canopian Fusiliers fought forces from the former Free Worlds League, while the other two regiments fought the Word of Blake in the Magistracy itself. The Second in particular took heavy losses from the Word. The Third was actually forced out of Capellan Confederation space during Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE, and then spent the rest of the Jihad defending the core of the Magistracy from the 42nd Shadow Division.
