Unit Description[edit]

The Thirteenth Republic Light Lancers was a BattleMech Regiment originally from the forces of Stefan Amaris, after the fall of the Amaris Empire members of the unit formed the Black Sharks mercenary command.

History[edit]

Star League[edit]

The unit served Stefan Amaris in his failed bid for supremacy, and survived the Hegemony Campaign.

First Succesion War[edit]

By 2784 they were in possession of the equipment to form a mercenary command, the Black Sharks, thanks to the power vacuum left after Aleksandr Kerensky's Exodus. They were initially hired by the Draconis Combine.[2]

A notable appearance places them on Tyrfing during the five-way fighting there in 2788, for the Combine on alongside the 8th Sword of Light.

They were listed as destroyed by 2821.
