The Avalon Borderers were a Federated Suns BattleMech brigade mostly consisting of former SLDF Regiments which joined the House Davion after the Exodus of the SLDF from the Inner Sphere.[1]


History[edit]

Founding[edit]

The unit had initially began with the First Avalon Borderers, however it was expanded with the addition of three former SLDF regiments once belonging to the SLDF 5th and 8th Armies. The four regiments in the brigade consisted of SLDF defectors which were the Fifth Hussars, Ninety-first Heavy Assault, 2004th Battle, and the 149th Dragoon Regiments.[1] These newcomers were veterans of the Amaris Civil War and participated in the liberation of Terra.[2]

First Succession War[edit]

The First Succession War first pitted the brigade's units against the Sun's enemies. The Second, Third and Fourth Regiments were deployed against the Draconis Combine in the FedSun's Counteroffensive. By the end of the war the Third Avalon Borderers had been destroyed and the remaining units' reduced to half-strength or worse.[1]

Second Succession War[edit]

The Second Succession War took an even greater toll upon the Avalon Borderers, as by the war's end both the First and Second had been destroyed and the Fourth reduced to barely a tenth of its authorized strength.[3]
