Second Taurian Lancers
Formed 3042[citation needed]
Nickname Starbright Regiment
Affiliation Taurian Concordat
Parent Command IV Corps


The Second Taurian Lancers were formed after the successful actions of the First Taurian Lancers impressed the Taurian Defense Force command enough to repeat the unit experiment. By 3042, a regiment of light to medium weight 'Mechs had been assembled and paired with a regiment of heavy and assault weight tanks (Heavy LRM Carriers).[1] The new unit had little time to perfect/acquire a singular set of tactics, but was employed as a defensive unit. The Second Taurian Lancers and their CO William Mouat were destroyed on Midale in February of 3070 by Hansen's Roughriders. The unit's symbol was an armored bull with starbursts at the tips of his horns set over interlocking circles.
