SPARTAN-III Program Roster
The Spartan-III Program began in 2531, and was mainly backed by ONI Section Three's Colonel James Ackerson. Supported and funded by Beta-5 Division, this new generation of supersoldiers was conceived as a secondary plan to repel Covenant incursions in UNSC space. The Spartan III's are different from their predecessors from both tactical and logistical standpoints. Their Semi-Powered Infiltration armor systems are considerably weaker than the Mjolnir, and their selection criteria was based on colonial volunteers, thus in-keeping with Colonel Ackerson's vision of creating cheaper, easy to maintain contingents of armored troops.
The Spartan-III's headquarters and command center is based in Camp Currahee on the planet Onyx. From what is currently known, the Spartan-III's engaged in at least six major operations ranging from battlefields on Covenant-controlled industrial asteroids, to distant Covenant military outposts such as Pegasi Delta, to asteroid belts. The commanding officer in charge of the entire structure of the Spartan-III's is Lieutenant Commander Kurt Ambrose (also known as SPARTAN-051, an erstwhile member of Spartan-II Blue Team and Green Team).

Spartan-III Delta Company
Delta Comapny was due to arrive on Onyx in 2552, however, with the Covenant attack beginning on Earth and the Sentinels taking control on Onyx, the unit never received training.
● Operation: PROMETHEUS was the most disastrous mission the Spartan-III's had undertaken. The operation itself consisted in disabling 30 plasma reactors on the surface of K7-49 (a Covenant industrial asteroid situated a few light years away from the UNSC frontier), and lasted seven days, from July 27 to August 2, 2537. While the Spartan-III Alpha Company succeeded in destroying 27 reactors, the entire unit composed of 300 Spartans was lost.
● Operation: TORPEDO took place on the planet Pegasi Delta on July 3, 2545. The operation was a success for the Spartan-III's, having destroyed the Covenant refinery on the planet. The only survivors of the mission are Tom-B292 and Lucy-B091.
● Zone 67 was a fenced dig site funded by ONI on Onyx. Although it was reported to contain valuable Forerunner artifacts, several Spartan-III fireteams went missing once they entered the area. It was later discovered that the Onyx Sentinels attacked the teams and captured them.
