Unit:Eridani Light Horse
|First Officer:||General-lieutenant Nivix|
Tradition. Throughout the ages, this word has evoked reactions ranging from scorn to misunderstanding to insincerity. However, for a select few, the word brings a power greater than any weapon and stronger than any armor. For those few, tradition is existence; without it, there is no purpose to life. For those few, tradition defines where we once were, who we are now, and where we strive to be. The Eridani Light Horse’s traditions were born when mankind was at its pinnacle. Man quickly plunged back into the shrouded darkness we have lived in for most of our existence, but the Light Horse know that for a brief span of two centuries, mankind lived in the sun of enlightenment. By our adherence to the traditions born in that light, we strive to bring those around us back to those glorious days.
Just over three years ago, mankind witnessed the rebirth of what all had believed was lost forever: the Star League. That I stand here today, a proud member of the new Star League Defense Force, is a testament to the strength of tradition. The Eridani Light Horse have formed the core of the new SLDF, from which other units will be created and trained. Through the traditions of our ancestors, we will teach the new recruits what it means to be a member of the Star League. That I have this opportunity is the highlight of my career.

We started in June 23rd, 2001 as the Russian ELH and Star League fans community. The founder and the first Commander of our unit was K.B.Wolf a.k.a. Lieutenant General ELH_Amis. Initially we played MechWarrior3 in computer clubs of Moscow. Later, in 2006 we took a keen interest in the NBT-HardCore known as multiplayer mod for MechWarrior4 Mercenaries. We joined NBT-HardCore League as ELH and also took part in the public testing of every following HC Beta update. Now our attention is focused on MechWarrior: Living Legends as a new page in the BattleTech and MechWarrior world fan history. And of course, we're waiting for MechWarror Online.
