Formed

History[edit]

Largely formed from the disbanded Eighteenth Marik Militia, Force Commander Halle Frazier chose to carry on the traditions of that unit even as the Free Worlds League dissolved. These traditions were maintained well-into the 32nd century, with the unit continuing to use a red rose as their logo, and calling themselves the Red Rose of Connaught.[1][2]

Originally painting their 'Mechs silver with a red trim, by 3145 the unit had reverted to the old paint scheme of the Marik Militia, painting their mechs purple with red and blue highlights.[2]

Tactics[edit]

By 3145, the Fourth Marik Protectors had chosen to emphasize aerospace fighters over more conventional units, fielding the largest number of aerospace fighters of the Marik Protectors, often allowing them to fend off pirates without their ground units ever having to open fire.[2]
