History[edit]

As part of the Sian Dragoons, the Tenth Sian Dragoons were a part of the largest BattleMech brigade in the history of the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces - both during the Age of War, and then again in the closing decades of the Star League era as the CCAF began rapidly expanding and reactivating regiments - and a regiment that could trace its origins back to when the first WAM-B BattleMechs were issued to support the tanks of the Sian Lancers.[1]

The Tenth was on El Giza when three regiments of the Regulan Hussars assaulted the world. The Tenth held the world for six months, tying down those three regiments so they couldn't get away. Unfortunately this cost the Tenth all but six of their warriors. In 2765 the Tenth was stationed on Payia.[1]
