Military and Wars Edit
Military: Based around anti-piracy.
Historically not that powerfull militarily, but a flair for diplomacy and modest claims to space have managed to keep it from ever coming under any major, organised siege.
Worked closely with the former JQA to secure the Syndicate region from Pirates, and during the inital stages of the war that destroyed JQA, was very active in helping to defend its ally. The alliance crumbled during this war however and one of the main JQA political factions began hostile raids against 3FA for a short time.
History: 3FA was founded late Febuary 2004, with all of its corps having no previous 0.0 experience. They did well against the local pirate groups and have carved out a secure niche in their corner of space. Their major hurdle was the war with the short-lived Catch 22 Alliance consisting of Corp 1 and Killer Clowns from Outer Space. The 3FA military did not win the war per se, but their opponents lost taste for it after about a month and a half. Currently they are fighting a empire war against Armoured Assasins. They also mediated a dispute between JQA and NORAD shortly before the 3FA-JQA alliance, which had been in place for a long time, fell apart during the death throes of JQA; as internal factions forming within JQA combined with outside attacks to destroy the alliance.
