3rd Periphery Guard
|3rd Periphery Guard LCT|
|Parent Command||Periphery March Guard|
The Third Periphery Guard is the youngest Periphery March Guard unit, having only existed since 3083.
Intended to be the rapid reaction force of the Periphery March Guard, the Third Guard is composed of units that can exceed eighty kilometers an hour. The only units that can't are the lighter battle armor formations, but even these are expected to make use of VTOL or hover transports to deploy alongside the rest of the unit. As yet, the Third Guard has only deployed two companies of the Mech and battle armor battalions. These two units were split into combat commands and sent to hunt pirates in the vast no man's land between the Taurian Concordat and Filtvelt Coalition while the third company of each unit type continues to train on June. The AFFS High Command hopes that these pirate hunting operations will quickly season the green troops of the Third Guard.
