History[edit]

The Third Robinson Chevaliers was one of the regiments within the Robinson Chevaliers brigade which could trace their roots back to the twenty-fourth century through the earlier Vale Rangers brigade of the Terran March Principality of the Federated Suns. Established in 2540 with the re-naming and re-roling of the Vale Rangers in the aftermath of the Davion Civil War, the Third would be an active part of the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns throughout the remainder of the Age of War and the formation of the Star League.[2]

When the few surviving members of the Third's sister regiment, the First Robinson Chevaliers, opted to disband the First in 2729 in the wake of the damage it had taken during the War of Davion Succession the Third - named the "Black Swans" after the short-lived chivalric order - became the oldest regiment within the brigade.[2]

The Third was one of the fifteen regiments of Robinson Chevaliers to be destroyed during the First Succession War.[1]

Officers[edit]

Rank Name Command
Commanding Officers of the 3rd Robinson Chevaliers

Tactics[edit]

A veteran unit, the Third was known for being careful and methodical in action and difficult to face directly due to the regiment's heavy throw weight. This methodical nature also made the Third relatively easy to either evade or vulnerable to being outmaneuvered.[2]
