Third Succession War[edit]

In 3007 the regiments of McCarron's Armored Cavalry raided New Valencia, baseworld of Wolf's Dragoons. Though they seized several small communities, the Dragoons were able to hold off the Armored Cavalry units long enough for the Eridani Light Horse regiments to arrive. The MAC regiments didn't inflict any damage to the Dragoons, but did raze several villages.[1]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

During the St. Ives conflict known as "Cristobel's Regiment" and in 3025 as "Barton's Regiment".

In the 4th Succession War all regiments of McCarron's Armored Cavalry except for the 1st were stationed on Menke. They later fought along campaign to defend Sarna but had to retreated off world as Davion reinforcements arrived in the end phase of the war.[citation needed]

Andurien/Canopus Invasion[edit]

War of 3039[edit]

Operation Guerrero[edit]

The First and Second Regiments of McCarron's Armored Cavalry assaulted Hsien during Operation Guerrero.[2]

Xin Sheng Campaign[edit]

Took Brighton from the St. Ives Compact during the Xin Sheng Campaign. Later occupied Milos and held it against the Eridani Light Horse.[3]

In 3066 the Second MAC and Ambermarle's Highlanders landed on Zion, disrupting the 3rd Free Worlds Guards and preventing them from attacking the Capellan Confederation.[4] The two units ripped into the Guards, only returning to Capellan space after several strongly worded orders from the Strategios.[5] They were stationed on Menke in 3067.[6]


In 3069 the Second MAC and Warrior House Dai Da Chi attacked Kathil.[7] The two Capellan units destroyed the shipyards located there. They then attacked Almach, Valexa, and Ashkum.[8]

While fighting on New Aragon in 3077, Angel Bodez was killed. Rhamses McCarron was appointed to take her place. In 3079 the unit was broken into two smaller units and stationed on Nanking and Arboris.[9]

Republic Era[edit]

During the Capellan Confederation's assault on The Republic of the Sphere, the First and Second MAC were assigned to Gan Singh. While there the VIII Hastati Sentinels and several regiments of Principes Guards destroyed the First MAC. The Second MAC then tore into the Eighth Hastati, but were eventually pushed off of Gan Singh.[10] This severe fighting reduced them to a third of their nominal strength. They were assigned to garrison Mitchel in 3085.[11]

Dark Age[edit]

Ramses McCarron carried a grudge against the Republic for the death of his sister, Faith, but wasn't able to fight them directly. Instead the Second used their anger to spur them into action during the Victoria War. They eventually had to retreat, but were satisfied with their performance. The Second fought on New Aragon, Hunan, and Halloran V later on, but they were stopped by the defenders of Kansu. They later withdrew as part of the CCAF's general retreat.[12]

They also fought on Plieone, St. Andre, and Shenshi. They were successful on those attacks.[12]

In 3144 elements of the Second MAC landed on Liao in order to return the world to the Capellan Confederation. The Second MAC used fast strikes to put the Republic defenders (the V Triarii Protectors and the V Principes Guards) on the defensive. As time passed the Republic forces were able to recover, but when the Second MAC joined forces with students from the Liao Conservatory of Military Arts and the fighters from a local terrorist movement, the Republic started to crumble. The arrival of the Dynasty Guard only accelerated the process. Infighting among the Republic forces led to a breakdown in command structure, and the Capellan forces were successful in their bid to remove Liao from the Republic.[13] They also fought on Gan Singh as part of this operation.[12]

December 3144 found the Second fighting on New Hessen. They took the world for the Capellan Confederation.[14][15] This assault was led by Sao-shao Danai Liao-Centrella.[16] Near the same time, they assaulted Yangtze and Alrescha before taking part in the capture of Tikonov.[12]
