HistoryEdit

FormationEdit

The unit was formed from former Davion mercenaries, which shared a deep hated for their ex-employer. The command was founded as part of the St. Ives Armored Cavalry in 3005[1]. The hatred goes so far that no prisoner were taken and all captured soldiers executed on the field. These war crimes in conjunction with other atrocities lead to a price for their heads. A sad example for the gruel are a raid in 3014, where a Davion mercenary command, Morcock's Crusher, assaulted St. Ives. The Defenders, the Armored Infantry and Wilson Hussars, captured many soldiers alive, but they were killed by the commander of the Infantry himself.

4th Succession WarEdit

In the 4th Succession War the unit defected to the newly formed St. Ives Compact.

JihadEdit

During the Jihad Devon's Armored Infantry was denied a place in Operation Thunderstrike. Instead throughout the Jihad the unit rotated between the factories on Warlock and reinforcing troops on Denbar and Nashuar. This changed in 3077 when the Armored Infantry landed on Zurich as part of the CCAF assault. They were still on Zurich in 3079.[2]

After the Jihad ended, Devon's Armored Infantry assaulted the Republic of the Sphere as part of Operation GOLDEN FORTRESS. They landed on Capolla and defeated the Nova Cats' 100th Striker Cluster. In 3082 they faced off against the Second and Eighth Auxiliaries units from the Republic. The Armored Infantry were eventually pushed off planet, but they inflicted severe damage on the Republic units. They were on Nanking in 3084 and they faced the I Hastati Sentinels. Though skilled, the Armored Infantry was savaged by the Republic unit and withdrew with heavy losses.[3] In 3085 they were rebuilding on Indicass, a task made difficult by the fact that they were only at a quarter of their nominal strength.[4]

OfficersEdit

In 3025 the commanding officer is Colonel Maxwell V. Devon.[5]

In 3050 the unit was commanded by Colonel Samuel Raymond.[6]

As of 3063 the commanding officer was Sang-shao Marcella Devon.

As of 3067 to 3085 the commanding officer was Sang-shao Andrea Devon. She was still in command in 3085.[4]
