Can anyone else confirm this unit existed? The citation is page 95 of a 72 page scenario book.HunterGratzner (talk) 10:15, 11 February 2021 (EST)

I have already raised it with Pserratv, he is usually spot on with his data so it likely does exist, he just listed the wrong book in the reference. We just need to figure out what book it was!--Dmon (talk) 10:37, 11 February 2021 (EST)
I'm unable to find it!! It is driving me crazy... but I cannot find it. It comes from an scenario and the unit was listed as defender. But in the fall of terra there is no such unit names this way...--Pserratv (talk) 11:51, 11 February 2021 (EST)
Yeah, I've a search-able PDF of the book and I do not see any mention of those three words together. In fact, "Aphros" itself is only mentioned twice. "Security" usually references computer defenses with its 35 instances, and "explorer" is usually in conjunction with "corps". I wonder, Pserratv, if you labeled it in your notes as a placeholder. Looking at the statement on page 10:
"...Word of Blake troops landed on Terra's moon to secure the Copernicus and Serenity bases, while additional forces attacked the War Academy on Mars and Aphros on Venus. The attackers secured Aphros and the War Academy, although only six 'Mechs survived the battle for the academy."
The statement reverses the placement of the locations ("War Academy on Mars" and "Aphros on Venus") in the 2nd sentence ("secured Aphros and the War Academy"), with the loss of all but six 'Mechs associated with the Mars' academy. Maybe you mistook the mentioned academy to be referencing the Military Academy (on Aphros), and saw the WOB losses as indicative of a security force? I'm going to tag this for deletion for the meantime. No need to rush to carry through, though. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 12:52, 13 May 2021 (EDT)
Sincerely speaking, at this stage, I feel you are right. Let's delete this and if I find the reference in the future, I'll amend. I'm reviewing the Jihad books just in case it is from that era.--Pserratv (talk) 13:11, 13 May 2021 (EDT)
Sounds good. I'm going to leave it as a non-speedy deletion case, just in case it comes up again. Good luck in your search.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 16:17, 13 May 2021 (EDT)
