History[edit]

The Nine-two Commando Mercenary unit is a small command, barely a reinforced company in size, that operates out of a customized Aurora-class DropShip, the Radiance. It is not known when it was founded, but it was very active on the Dark Age.

Their most well-known action was on Marcus in 3144 under contract of the Republic Remnant. Their mission was a Pirate Hunting action against the planet pirates that were too strong but the detachment of the VII Hastati Sentinels deployed on planet. Using guile and tactics the Nine-two feinted and attack with their Quirinus Battlearmour (and other ones) plus the unit's VTOL flight that when responded by the pirates made the Infiltrator Mk II platoon break havoc on the pirates. That and the arrival of the Hastati sealed the fate of the pirates, whose few survivors fled into the wilderness conceding the firebase to the attackers.[1]

Tactics[edit]

The unit's specialization is in covert and special operations, with contracts that never last more than a month or two. Their rates are... well they command rates that an infantry battalion would envy.[1]

Support[edit]

It is not known if they have a Jumpship in their possession, but the way they move and the length of their contracts could imply it.[citation needed]
