4th Capellan Defense Force
Unit Profile (as of 3085)
Nickname The Miscreants
Parent Formation Capellan Defense Force
Formed 3081


The Fourth Capellan Defense Force was formed in 3081 to provide garrison units for worlds taken in Operation GOLDEN DAWN. The Fourth was split into battalion sized units and stationed on several worlds taken from The Republic of the Sphere. The first battalion was stationed on Capolla and was quickly destroyed by Republic forces. By contrast the third battalion was stationed alongside Marshigama's Legionnaires and on Woodstock the units withstood an assault by a Republic force that outnumbered them four-to-one.

After Marshigama's Legionnaires was destroyed as a unit, the company of survivors was transferred into the Fourth CDF.[1]

Sometime prior to 3145 the Fourth engaged the 8th Orloff Grenadiers and so badly hurt the FWLM unit that the LCCC was considering disbanding it.[2]


In 3085 the commanding officer is Sang-shao Elton Sneed.[3]

In 3145 the commanding officer was Sang-shao Ashton "Thrash" McGar.[4]
