|Sixth Amaris Dragoons|
|Unit Profile (as of 2584)|
|Parent Formation||Amaris Dragoons|
One of the Rim Worlds Army units aligned with the Rim Provisional Government during the Rim Worlds Republic civil war that began in 2575, the Sixth Amaris Dragoons spent much of the next decade on the world of Qurayyat in the Republic's Finmark Province.
The Star League eventually decided to intervene in the civil war in support of Gregory Amaris, and assembled Task Force MAILED FIST to help secure Amaris' control over the Rim Worlds Republic. A multinational force headed by the Star League Defense Force, Task Force MAILED FIST was responsible for executing Operation MAILED FIST, the name given to the military intervention. After a destructive raid on Alarion prompted the SLDF to alter its initial strategy for the campaign, the focus shifted to reducing Rim Worlds Army concentrations throughout the Republic and responsibility for formations such as the Sixth Dragoons within the Finmark province was given to Battle Group Finmark, a grouping of SLDF and Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces units under the overall command of Archon Viola Steiner-Dinesen.
The Archon deployed the Lyran Auxiliary Corps to secure Qurayyat and the Sixth Dragoons; based around the Fourth Royal Guards Regiment, Twenty-Fifth Skye Rangers and the Tamar Tigers, the LCAF contingent landed on Qurayyat in 2584, defeating the outnumbered Sixth Dragoons and securing control of the world.
