Non-canon: In this instance this term referred to a small elite military unit raised from the Bunkeria Subsector on the planet of Marsus (Core 0127 B578598-B) by the fanatical Baron Rolf von Toerbach. They were organized and trained for four years before they saw combat, at the Baron's personal expense and under his personal command. The higher ups saw first to give him a small cadre of very talented special operators, NCO's and instructors who took personal pride in forging an elite outfit. This Colonial Legion exceeded expectations and had a decent combat service history for the Interstellar Confederacy until the Sylean Federation overwhelmed them. Equipped with the very best TL–12 weapons, vehicles and armor; they relied on naval support for deployment. They were army and NOT marines.
