History[edit]

The Seventh Regulan Hussars were formed as a medium weight BattleMech regiment from ex-Star League troops and in 2786 were deployed to Köln.[1] They were stationed on Kyrkbacken in 2808 when House Liao launched an assault against the world with five BattleMech regiments. The Seventh put up a dogged defense but after a week of fighting they had been destroyed. The Liao invaders committed numerous war crimes during this offensive and not a single Regulan prisoner was taken. The Hussars as a whole carried a deep grudge against Capellan forces for centuries because of this action. [2]

Rebirth[edit]

The Seventh Regulan Hussars was reformed from the Ronin Incorporated security battalion in 3069. When the Principality of Regulus declared independence, the unit was drafted into the Regulan Hussars. The unit has accepted replacements from many former Free Worlds League regiments, typically soldiers who have deserted from their regiment.[3] They were stationed on Wallis in 3079.[4] In 3085 they were the garrison for Harmony.[5]

The unit initially found it difficult to adapt to the requirements of the Regulan Strategic Military Command, but in the decades since the Jihad they became a valued member of the Regulan Hussars. They were stationed on Regulus in 3145 after taking some losses while raiding the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth. While there they were training replacement armor and infantry units and rebuilding its 'Mech battalion.[6]

Notes[edit]

First Succession War (Sourcebook) lists the unit as being at 38% full strength on the planet Remulac in 2821, this seems at odds with the information in Rolling Thunder, but could represent an attempt to rebuild the regiment after its destruction in 2808.
