History[edit]

The Third Centauri Guards were stationed on Bacum in 2765. Unlike the two other Centauri Guards units, they were formed after the Confederation joined the Star League, so they had fewer of the regional rivalries that plagued the other units. They still had problems with internal power struggles, however.[1]

In 2793 a battalion from the Third, the Twenty-first Centauri Lancers, were responsible for the destruction of the Fourth Marik Militia, a Free Worlds League Military regiment, on Anegasaki.[2]

Notes[edit]

It was confirmed that the Twenty-first Centauri Lancers were a battalion within the Third Centauri Guards in 2793 and responsible for the destruction of the Fourth Marik Militia on Anegasaki by the BattleTech Developer Adrian Gideon in the Catalyst Game Labs official errata forum:

Handbook House Liao (print)

Pg 30, Timeline: First Succession War, Dev-level errata: 2793 - The Twenty-First Centauri Lancers destroy the Fourth Marik Militia on Anegasaki, in one of their first contracts as mercenaries after the Star League Defense Force's withdrawal.
