History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The 3rd Ghost Regiment was formed in 3040[1]. The oyabun responsible for staffing the unit committed suicide after misunderstanding one of Theodore's wishes. When he died, most of the 3rd's loyalty to the DCMS died as well. Each battalion of the 3rd Ghost was drawn from a different yakuza clan, and they tend to think of themselves as separate units instead of a single regiment.[1]

War of 3039[edit]

On July 15 3039 the Third and Fourth Ghost Regiments landed on Breed and engaged the defending FedCom forces (2nd Robin Rangers + 1st NAIS Cadre) in a mobile campaign. The DCMS make the FedCom defenders believe that the invading force were much larger then the incoming 2 regiments. After the landing the fight continued for three week with out a clear winner. The 4th Ghost get new orders to continued their raids deeper in the enemy territory and the 2nd Robin Rangers were recalled to Robinson to increase the defence for an awaited attack which never occured.

Dominion War[edit]

During the Dominion War, the 3rd Ghost launched an attack on Marawi, where they were destroyed by the 17th Provisional Garrison Cluster and the 30th Provisional Garrison Cluster.[3]

Officers[edit]

In 3059 the commanding officer was Tai-sa Noah Christienson[1].

Tactics[edit]

The 3rd Ghost is the most traditional of all the Ghost Regiments. They tend to favor stand up fights rather than the integrated attacks preferred by Theodore Kurita. They also tend to operate as separate battalions rather than a single regiment; This is a holdover from their origins.[1]
