History[edit]

The Fourth Avalon Borderers were an Armed Forces of the Federated Suns regiment formed by recruiting former Star League Defense Force personnel.[1]

First Succession War[edit]

In 2784 the AFFS successfully recruited a number of SLDF regiments. One of the regiments recruited was the 149th Dragoon Regiment,[2] formerly a part of VII Corps[3] within the SLDF Eighth Army.[2][3] The Dragoons were redesignated as the Fourth Avalon Borderers, and were joined within the Avalon Borderers brigade by two other former SLDF commands, the Fifth Hussar Regiment and the 2004th Battle Regiment.[2] The Fourth Avalon Borderers survived the First Succession War, although they lost more than two-thirds of their strength during the conflict. One of their sister regiments, the Third, was less fortunate.[1]

Second Succession War[edit]

The Fourth Avalon Borderers rebuilt to just over four-fifths of full strength by the time the Second Succession War began full-force, and were the only regiment within the Avalon Borderers to survive the war - albeit as a shadow of their former selves.[4]
