History

Were originally part of the Ursh military force and fought for the Kalagann tyrant before he was defeated by the Emperor during the Unification Wars.[2]

They sported distinctive helmets with flip-down visors that showed frost-green photomech cursors moving back and forth across the optical slit.[1]

Weapons & Equipment

The Tupelov Lancers were described as "hussars", or light cavalry, and were noted to ride cybernetic steeds and be armed with saddle-rated carbine weapons.[1]
