The Ceti Hussars were formed as a combined-arms command integrated below the regimental level. The RCT consists of a trio of combat commands, each built around a ’Mech battalion. Each command also includes two vehicle battalions and two infantry regiments. The Hussars’ fighter wing and artillery battalion are independent subcommands that attach to any of the three combat commands as needed.
