The Third St. Ives Sentinels was created in secret sometime before Operation CELESTIAL REWARD as one of the Hidden Lion regiments formed by Chancellor Daoshen Liao using stockpiled equipment.[1] This new Sentinels unit uses the Augmented Regiment formations commonly found in the CCAF by 3145.[2] They are a second-line regiment of the St. Ives Commonality.[3]

In 3145, the 3rd St. Ives Sentinels raided various Federated Suns planets on their way to their garrison post on Remshield. Their care in avoiding civilian infrastructure allowed them to raid virtually unopposed by the local militia.[1]
