The 1st Capellan Dragoons are the traditional guardians of the Duke of Kathil. Raised from mercenaries and Capellan defectors, the AFFS has never truly trusted the Dragoons. The Dragoons were sold by the Hasek family early in the 31st century, and have been loaned back to the Duke of Kathil for reasons unknown. The regiment was effectively destroyed during the FedCom Civil War.


History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The 1st Capellan Dragoons originated from the guards of the Duke of Kathil during the Second Succession War (28302864).[1]

In 3009 the regiment was sold to the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns under the condition that the respective Duke of Kathil could buy it back anytime.[1]

4th Succession War[edit]


War of 3039[edit]


Clan Invasion[edit]


Operation Guerrero[edit]


Operation Bulldog[edit]


Civil War[edit]

In 3061 political turmoil was happening on Kathil, as the official military chain of command collided with orders issued directly by Katherine Steiner-Davion. The 8th FedCom RCT stayed on Kathil with the excuse, that the other defenders were too inexperienced. So, Duke Petyr VanLee called the 1st Capella Dragoons to counter that argument. The 8th FedCom RCT didn't dare to disobey direct orders and some of it's career-hungry officers opened direct war with the Kathil CMM. Under heavy losses, the Kathil CMM managed to secure a safe landing for the 1st Capella Dragoons,[2] which wiped out the 8th FedCom in revenge.[3]

The First was assimilated into the 5th Davion Guards in May 3064.[4]
