Formed 3128


The Dark Age[edit]

Formed in 3128, the Third Fronc Cuirassiers were established as a part of the Fronc Reaches Sentinels brigade because the Fronc Reaches was expanding rapidly through colonization.[1]

Whereas the two sister units to the Third Cuirassiers, the First and Second Fronc Cuirassiers were both operating in small unit formations by the mid-thirty-second century the preferred doctrine of the Third was to keep the various branches of the unit - the Third Fronc Air Wing, Third Fronc Armor and Third Fronc Infantry - distinct and seperate, mixing them only as companies on the various worlds the Third was assigned to.[1]

In 3145 one of the worlds garrisoned by the Third, Appian, was the target of a substantial number of pirate raids; the commanding officer of the Third, Colonel More Routhier, made a point of rotating the elements of his command through Appian on a regular basis, both to reduce the effects of attrition and to ensure that the entire unit maintained it's edge.[1]


As of 3085 the commanding officer of the Third was Colonel More Routhier.[2]
