FSE Foreign Legion

The Légion Étrangère, the French Foreign Legion, is one of the iconic fighting forces. It is composed of both foreigners and Frenchmen, led by the cream of France’s officer corps. It has a mystique and mythology surrounding it unmatched by any other modern military formation which sometimes obscures a fine fighting record. The Légion has been in French service for over four hundred and fifty years and remains a vital part of France’s defences and power projection. The modern Légion has no fewer than 34 combat battalions recruited from across the Earth and the off-world colonies, and in recent years it has proved its mettle against the NAC, NSL and the alien Kra'Vak.
