ToE 19th Scansin Lancers (Part 3)
Contrary to many Rough Rider Regiment's throughout the Imperium the 19th Lancers are also trained as standard guardsman. Meaning that they can operate mounted using their Lances, or as dis-mounted infantry. This is extremely useful for outflanking an enemy, and using the dismounted troops to set up a prepositioned firing line. Up until now, this has been their redeeming factor, the 19th has performed exceptionally well when deployed in a dis-mounted role. Some of the lower echelon officers have even begun to voice the opinion that Group command has no idea how to properly employ cavalry. Of course such thoughts are rarely voiced in the presence of outsiders, or within 100 meters of a Commissar, but the idea is slowly spreading throughout the battle group.
