3rd Centauri Guards
|Third Centauri Guards|
|Unit Profile (as of 2765)|
|Nickname||The Tortoise-Shield Borderers|
|Parent Formation||St. Ives Armored Cavalry|
The Third Centauri Guards were stationed on Bacum in 2765. Unlike the two other Centauri Guards units, they were formed after the Confederation joined the Star League, so they had fewer of the regional rivalries that plagued the other units. They still had problems with internal power struggles, however.
