3rd Taurian Pride
|Third Taurian Pride|
|Parent Command||Taurian Pride|
The Third Taurian Pride was formed during the Dark Age by the Calderon Protectorate. During the mid-thirty-first century the Third were responsible for protecting the Carvajal system, a strategically significant system given that both trade and military aid from the Federated Suns and the Filtvelt Coalition flowed into the Protectorate through Carvajal.
Being stationed on Carvajal meant facing a significant number of pirate raids - considerably more than the average for a Protectorate world. By 3145 the largest raid the Third had been forced to deal with had been a battalion-sized raid in 3140, staged by a pirate band who managed to sneak their combined-arms unit through the customs checks in place at the main jump points before staging an orbital drop onto the city of Lancaster.
The Third engaged the pirates as quickly as they could, although they were unable to prevent the raiders from firing the planetary administration complex; the Third's commanding officer, Colonel Yulia Carlos, personally led the Third in a hot pursuit that took them across the planet and then into space. The Third finally caught up with and destroyed the pirates while they were travelling to a pirate point, and even managed to capture and secure a Merchant-class JumpShip that was waiting for the raiders at the pirate point.
