As a part of the Tikonov Lancers brigade, the Sixth Tikonov Lancers could claim a line of direct descent from some of the first military units to be formed outside of the Terran Alliance. Despite a number of regiments from the brigade being transfered to the Star League Defense Force, deactivating those regiments within the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces, it was considered unacceptable to create a new regiment of Lancers when the traditions of a former regiment could be revived. This helped to maintain the perceived connection between each regiment and the history of the Lancers all the way back to the earliest days of the Tikonov Union.[2]

The Sixth Lancers were one such unit to be reconstituted as the Capellan Confederation began enlarging its military during the second half of the twenty-eighth century. Those who joined the Sixth when the regiment was reactivated during the twenty-eighth century quickly embraced the traditions and heritage of the Tikonov Lancers, reveling in both playing and singing the traditional polkas associated with the regiment, which was nicknamed the "Jolly Poznan Lancers". In common with the other regiments of the brigade the Sixth would display the rigid doctrines and inflexible character that typified the Tikonov Lancers.[2]

It was during the Age of War - prior to the disestablishment of a number of Lancer regiments to feed the nascent SLDF - that Franco Liao purged the noble trained bands that had been dominated by the families of the Tikonov Tetrarchs and sheng nobility, removing their influence from the various Tikonov Lancers regiments with varying degrees of success.[2]
