The Nordlicht Squadron (ノルトリヒト戦隊, Norudorihito-Sentai?) was a squadron of the Federal Republic of Giad's 177th Armored Division, comprised of Federacy soldiers, Vargus mercenaries, and the five survivors of the Spearhead Squadron. They have since been removed from the Federacy's regular forces and placed under the Eighty-Sixth Strike Package, as all of the regular Federacy soldiers previously in the squadron had perished, leaving only the Vargus and the Eighty-Six. Currently, the squadron is only comprised of the Vargus led by Brent Bernholdt.

Role[edit | edit source]

The Nordlicht Squadron's most important role was in the elimination of the Morpho on the San Magnolia-Giad border during the large-scale offensive. Fifteen members of Nordlicht were airdropped deep behind the front lines in order to eliminate the Railgun Type, which they did successfully.

Inside the Strike Package, they play supporting roles to Shin and the Spearhead Squadron.
