|15th Lyran Guards RCT|
|Unit Profile (as of 3067)|
|Nickname||The Death or Glory Boys|
|Parent Formation||Lyran Guards|
The unit gained its regimental nickname for the many times it faced certain death, only to trick fate by surviving. The Fifteenth defended the planet Hesperus II during the the Tenth Battle (2997) against elements of the FWLM. The Guards, which were commanded by later Archon Katrina Steiner, performed a dangerous suborbital combat drop ontop of the enemy forces. The difficoult maneuver was successful, and the 15th Lyran Guards routed the smaller Marik force. Accordingly, they participated in the unsuccessful attempt to invade the planet Kalidasa.
Since the battle for Hesperus II in 3057, the 15th Lyran Guards have resorted to conservative unrisky tactics.
