First Kathil Uhlans
Unit Profile (as of 3062)
Nickname "Lions of Davion"
Parent Formation AFFS
Formed 3029

The First Kathil Uhlans were a Federated Suns BattleMech regiment.


Raised by Morgan Hasek-Davion in 3029 from Delta Company of the Davion Light Guards under the command of Captain Andrew Redburn, the survivors of the Fifth Syrtis Fusiliers, and the Third Battalion of the Kathil CMM. Their formation was part of a last ditch effort to fend off a Capellan raid intended to cripple Kathil's shipyards. The unit took heavy damage in the operation, where they faced elements of the Death Commandos and the Fourth Tau Ceti Rangers, but emerged victorious. [1]

Almost immediately after the battle, the Uhlans traveled to Sian to extract Justin Allard, the spy who had warned of the impending attack on Kathil. Besides picking up Allard, the Uhlans also extracted Alexi Mallory and Candace Liao.

War of 3039[edit]


During the war the Uhlans were part of an task force together with the 1st Kestrel Grenadiers. The task force had the goal to conquer the planet Matar for the AFFS as future base for the following up waves. The 1st Phase of the invasion was difficult, because the local population was hostile to the invaders and the conventional fighter unit of the DCMS slowed the invasion. Only with additional conventional forces could the AFFS secure strategic points on the world. The DCMS would send the 11th Ghost and 12th Ghost as relief force to the planet. The AFFS unit could separate the 2 DCMS units but the fighting in heavy urban environment killed hundreds of civilians and devastated large areas. That angered the Combine citizens further, leaving AFFS no other choice but to withdraw the task force from that world. [2]

Task Force Serpent[edit]

Primarily remaining on station on its homeworld of Kathil immediately before and after the Clan Invasion.[3]

In 3059 they formed part of Task Force Serpent[4] and assaulted Clan world of Huntress in the following year.

After the heavy losses on Huntress the unit was dissolved in 3062 and most of its members joined the SLDF's newly founded First Royal BattleMech Regiment.
