HistoryEdit

2765Edit

After the Reunification War II Corps was rebuilt by expanding on the Hyades Special Services regiments that had originally formed as part of the Taurian Guards Corps. The regiments were highly skilled in combined arms, and typically integrated militia armor and infantry assets into their order of battle. For rapid redeployment to counter Federated Suns incursions, a Concordat-class WarShip was assigned to each regiment along with the standard JumpShips. This allowed the regiments of II Corps to quickly smash the pirate forces they found along the Federated Suns border.[1]

3060sEdit

Elements of the Brigade were deployed to loaned to the Trinity Alliance partner, the Capellan Confederation for their war against the St. Ives Compact. Forces deployed there were devastated in the conflict.[2]

In 3066, Hyades Light Infantry, along with other Corps were deployed to FedSun's Pleiades Cluster after the discovery of a route through the Cluster allowed for an assault against Taurus. The task force invading the Cluster initially took control of most of its worlds. However a powerful counter-attack at direction Capellan March Lord, Duke George Hasek devastated the II Corp last combat regiment, the Hyades Light Infantry.[3] Survivors were absorbed into the Taurian Guards.[4]

After the destruction of the Hyades Light Infantry, the II Corps was temporarily disbanded, with Longwood's Bluecoats was transferred to IV Corps[5]
