|First Tikonov Guards|
|Unit Profile (as of 3145)|
|Parent Formation||Tikonov Guards|
Age of War
Numerous resistance groups were formed with Maskirovka assistance following the loss of central authority brought about by Gray Monday. Hailing from former Sarna Commonality worlds taken by the Republic of the Sphere, these rebels and defectors immediately joined the invading Capellan Confederation Armed Forces as auxiliaries serving in irregular battalions. These battalions were soon reequipped from Capellan supply depots and assembled to become the First Tikonov Guards.
Operation GREAT FLOOD
Operation CELESTIAL REWARD
Sometime in 3144, the Third Sian Dragoons and the First Tikonov Guards fought the First Federated Suns Armored Cavalry for control of Almach as part of Operation CELESTIAL REWARD. The superior maneuverability and ambush tactics employed by the Federated Suns unit resulted in a victory against the Capellan force. The planet would fall in a second invasion attempt later that year.
