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.

In 28 ABY, amid heavy losses in the Yuuzhan Vong War, the Third Fleet was reorganized along with the rest of the Combined Defense Forces of the New Republic as the Galactic Alliance Third Fleet.

Operational History[]

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.[1]

After its capture, the Guardian was assigned to the Third Fleet. After the Almanian Uprising, it and the Fifth Fleet were sent to battle the Imperial Remnant in the Outer Rim.[3]

In preparation of the Battle of Fondor, it was stationed at Kuat. It later became the Galactic Alliance Third Fleet.

The Jantol and Farlight were part of this fleet.
