History[edit]

Formation during Clan Invasion[edit]

The Third Night Stalkers regiment was raised after Theodore Kurita's Phoenix Programs fell short of the need for new units. Retired warriors were offered one more chance to fight, and officers were transferred in from the Second. As of 3059, the unit was stationed on Xinyang.[1]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

After defeating Clan Nova Cat forces on Sawyer, the Third Night Stalkers and 6th Ghost regiment attacked Clan Smoke Jaguar forces on Schwartz.[2][3]

FedCom Civil War[edit]

During the FedCom Civil War, the Third was deployed to the Lyons Thumb as part of the peacekeeping force. A battalion of the Third was stationed on Yorii when mercenaries disguised as Lyran troops hit the world. The Stalkers drove them off-world.[4]

Jihad[edit]

The regiment was destroyed by Word of Blake forces on Yorii and Lyons. Its surviving members were held in Blakist re-education camps. Few survived. [5] The Third was officially listed as destroyed in 3085.[6] The three survivors of the unit were transferred into the Otomo to honor their years of resistance against the Blakists, even while in prison.[7]
