Cresh-3 Platoon was an infantry platoon of the Galactic Empire's Stormtrooper Corps, serving as a component of Company Cresh alongside three other platoons. After being rotated off active duty for training, Company Cresh and other stormtrooper units were placed under Red Battalion, an Imperial cadet training formation for several days of training exercises on Sirpar. There, the young cadets would command the stormtrooper units to demonstrate the value of discipline and training. The Imperial cadet Zare Leonis served as the platoon's commanding officer as a lieutenant, while Bedal Cerroux served as the sergeant major.
During one of the exercises, Leonis personally led one of the platoon's four squads and were directed to serve as an artillery unit. There, they provided fire support for the rest of the company during the exercise.
