Unit Description[edit]

The First Kavalleri was a light-weight and reconnaissance BattleMech Regiment, which was a military formation serving the Free Rasalhague Republic.


The First Kavalleri was formed on Radstadt in 3034 comprising mostly armor and motorized infantry.[2] In April 3034 the unit was on Heiligendreuz. [3] Involved in the Ronin War, they attempted to defend Radstadt from invading ronin forces in 3034, but temporarily lost control of it due to Vinson's Vigilantes' refusal to help in the defense.[4] The 1st Kavalleri moved to Goito in June 3034 [3] and was destroyed in fighting in 3035; their surviving forces were absorbed into the Second Kavalleri.[2]

Later the First would be reformed in 3050 as a BattleMech formation, where it would be assigned as part of the planetary garrison force for Basiliano.[5]
