Fourth Succession War[edit]

The Second was strengthened by the transfer of the best soldiers from the First and Third Lancers in 3022, but was defeated on Procyon in 3029 by vastly superior numbers. The Second's commanding officer, Colonel Jenny Twofeathers dueled Lord Ridzik, trading her life to allow her unit to escape.[1] On Procyon the Second Sirian Lancers faced the 2nd Republican Guards regiment led by Pavel Ridzik.[2]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

Around the same time as Operation Bulldog, the Second Sirian Lancers liberated worlds of the Sirian Holds from the crazed Alexander Gyrn. Though equally as critical of the Captain-General and Free Worlds League, instead of getting into fights with other units the Second took a different tack: Any soldier not born in or a citizen of the Sirian Concordance was transferred out of the unit. This led to a sharp drop in the number of qualified soldiers, but they were quickly replaced by new recruits.[3]

Jihad[edit]

The Eagle-class WarShip FWLS Percival went rogue in early February 3068, and on the 4th of February the Percival launched a raid on Skye. Accompanying the Percival were troops of the 2nd Sirian Lancers in retaliation for the death of Helen Thrall. They faced several units of Skye Rangers and were driven offworld.[4][5][6] This attack led directly to the Bolan Province invading the Free Worlds League.[7]
