Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
* The Sangrian Training Company
Detached Infantry Company
Formed originally from volunteers and assigned Jannisary forces, the Sangrian Training Company was a detached force from * “The Cerberus Command” assigned to act as a training force under contract with the Sangrian Government on System – Dumassas.
Originally led by Captain Jerri Holden, she had taken her platoon of experienced security and line troopers along with a pair of “militia” platoons to train the government forces located in the national capital in combined-arms operations. Assisting her was Master Trooper Grant Burke “Sabre”, whose professionalism assisted in fulfilling their contract. They were contracted for a complete year, as a Static Defense Mission (Cadre) Contract – Operation : “Show-and-Tell”. They fulfilled the contract honorably.

In early 3023, the unit was rebuilt using a veteran marine force as leadership, and placing three very green recruit platoons under them as a training force, while the unit performed garrison duty on The Independent Archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina, under the semi-permanent Static Defense Mission (Cadre) Contract – Operation : “Ocean Breeze”.
The new militia units also deployed with EVA Suits – “Prometheus Class”, and L2 “Maser” Laser Assault Rifles to begin training as marines. In addition, the unit brought a number of Sea Shark personal watercraft, and MP-75mm Anti-Tank Guns for defensive purposes. The unit scrounged a Combat Engineering Vehicle from the unit’s equipment reserves, and also deployed with a Field Comm Kit, Advanced and a Military Comm Hub.
Sangrian Training Company (3023)
Command of the unit after November, 3023 was taken over by the 9th Marines, replacing the 6th Marines :
Having spent some time on-planet during a very “Easy Ticket”, the unit slowly expanded to four full-strength platoons, and a couple of the squads have even improved their quality. LtJG Paula “Kaliente” Perez and LtJG Abelinda Rivera rose to lead the Militia elements of the unit.
At the start of 3021, the unit was folded officially back into * “The Dead Man’s Hand”, and took over the infantry portion of that unit’s last contract on Terramatrix.
In 3023, the company was reborn as a garrison/cadre force for The Independent Archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina, and began operations under Contract – Operation : “Ocean Breeze”. It was placed under the temporary command of LtSG Trooper Shiv “The Knife”, acting as a (Brevet) Captain in his role. It was hoped the unit could slowly raise a force of reserve military troopers for defense of the island archipelago if required.
In late-3023, the 9th Marines took command of the company, relieving the Talons for deployment in Contract – Operation : “Where the Wild Things Are”.
