History[edit]

The Quint's Olympian Groundpounders emerged from the ruins of Quint's Quartet. The unit signed a contract with the Circinus Federation in 3050 and stayed under contract with the Federation for the next 16 years. During the Marian Hegemony invasion they faced the Marians' III Legio Limitanei and suffered moderate loses.

During the Jihad, the Groundpounders continued to work for the Circinian government. Circinus was suborned by the Word of Blake, which meant that the Groundpounders were de facto working for the Word. Because of that association, they were blacklisted and considered "wanted" by the Mercenary Review and Bonding Commission.[citation needed]

Tactics[edit]
