The New Republic Third Fleet was a major fleet unit of the New Republic Defense Fleet. Activated in 4 ABY under the personal command of Admiral Gial Ackbar, the fleet was involved in the New Republic liberation campaign up to the capture of Coruscant, and then became a major defensive command based at Kashyyyk. The Third Fleet acted as a rapid reaction force during the Thrawn campaign, and in 17 ABY fought in the Imperial Skirmishes, helping deal a final defeat to the Imperial Remnant.
The New Republic Third Fleet was led by Admiral Gial Ackbar after the Battle of Endor. It fought Grand Admiral Syn's Imperial forces during the liberation of Kashyyyk. The Third Fleet, under the command of Admiral Nammo, was defeated in battle at the Bilbringi system by Admiral Teren Rogriss and the 181st Imperial Fighter Wing in 6 ABY.
