History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

The Twenty-fourth Sian Dragoons regiment was founded by the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces in 2786, although the origins of the Twenty-fourth lay in an older command, the 189th Battle Regiment.[1] An independent regiment within XXV Corps of the Star League Defense Force Eighth Army, the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces recruited the 189th in 2783 and redesignated them as the Twenty-fourth Sian Dragoons in 2786.[1]

The Twenty-fourth participated in the third attempt to conquer Oriente, the capital world of the Duchy of Oriente, in 2805. The third attack used a hastily-assembled task force, and saw the Twenty-fourth deploy some of the new WSP-1L Wasps to assist with various tasks including clearing buildings in Cadiz, Oriente's capital city.[2]
