History[edit]

War of 3039[edit]

During the War of 3039, the 10th Deneb Light Cavalry, along with the 1st Robinson Rangers and 93rd Mechanized Brigade, was part of a taskforce led by Field Marshal James Sandoval to recapture the important BattleMech producing world of Marduk, lost to Draconis Combine forces during the Fourth Succession War. The AFFS taskforce greatly outnumbered the local militia and a battalion of the 6th Benjamin Regulars defending the world, capturing the planet with relative ease. [1]

Digging in the face of an expected counter attack, AFFS forces outnumbered the remains of the Sixth and 8th Galedon Regulars sent to retake the planet, inflicting heavy losses thanks to the old-school Kurita tactics practiced by both units. Trapping the Combine forces in the remains of a Succession Wars era fort, the Light Cavalry only withdrew when First Prince Hanse Davion recalled the FedCom forces, but not before they stripped machinery and materials from the manufacturers on-world.[2]
