As part of the Sian Dragoons, the Eleventh 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.[3]

Though destroyed in the Succession Wars, the Eleventh was recreated as part of Chancellor Daoshen Liao's "Hidden Lion" initiative. The Eleventh participated in Operation GREAT FLOOD, and like other units of the Sian Dragoons it was split up into smaller commands to confuse Republic intelligence assets. They were used frequently to reinforce other CCAF units, and were praised by those units for their ability to "fill gaps" in a CCAF unit's abilities.[4] In 3145 they were stationed on Palladaine.[1]
