History[edit]

The First Syrtis Hussars was a BattleMech regiment mustered by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns at some point between the publication of a Star League Intelligence Command report on the status of the AFFS in mid-2765[1] and the eve of the First Succession War in 2786.[2]

The First Syrtis Hussars were destroyed at some point during the First Succession War.[2] When the Draconis Combine launched a massive invasion of the Federated Suns in May 2787, the Hussars were on Galtor III, in the region known as the Paris Bulge, a critical target for the DCMS. The rapid pace of the invasion, with worlds being conquered before having a chance to send messages, and the deliberate destruction of JumpShips by the Draconis Combine Admiralty left local AFFS command staff bewildered, and resulted in a confused response that left the Hussars holding in place on Galtor III as the front rapidly surged past them.[3]
