History

Third Division was raised in response to an increasing number of pirate raids on newly formed or outlying colonies, that needed an armed force for security. Third Division has spent much of it's time operating attached to the Colonial Authority, augmenting the limited capabilities of the Colonial Security Force.

Organization

On paper, Third Division was structured similarly to First Division and Second Division, but in actuality contained larger headquarters and engineer battalions (closer in size to a full regiment, each), in order to support Third Divisions needs, as it was spread out among numerous colonies, allowing First and Second divisions to remain clustered within the relatively built up inner colonies.
