Alpha Tactical Armored Cavalry Regiment “Rabbits”

The Alpha Tactical Armored Cavalry “Rabbits” was perhaps the most famous unit of the Second Robotech War. Not only was Alpha Regiment responsible for several important victories during the war, to include but not limited to the downing of one of the Robotech Masters’ Azashar-class Mother Ships, it was also the unit of then 2LT Dana Sterling, the daughter of the equally famous Brigadier General Maximilian Sterling and Colonel Miriya Sterling. The following is a simplified table of organization for Alpha Regiment, minus support units.
