The Two Hundred Ninth Light Horse Regiment was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army.


The 209th Light Horse was configured as a bandit raiding force. They would conduct "raids" on at least four Hegemony systems every year, providing training opportunities for the system defenders. As these defenders were largely made up of reserve troops, the training proved vital.[1]

In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the X Corps, First Army, to the Terran Military Region and then transferred to District 1 of the Free Worlds League Military Region by 2765, to take part in the New Vandenberg Uprising.[2] The 209th was destroyed during the Hegemony Campaign.[2]
