Legal basis Edit
The Quadrant Guard was organized under the Quadrant's constitution, after the Grantville government agreed to a locally raised and maintained military force brought up during the Constitutional Convention. It was also to be used as the basis for an expansion of planetary combat troops.
The Quadrant maintained the Guard out of local tax revenues.
Local components Edit
Star nations unified into the Talbott Quadrant originally maintained separate space forces.
- It seems the strongest navies belonged to the Rembrandt Trade Union members, including the Rembrandt System Navy, as well as space forces of Prairie, Redoubt, and San Miguel.
- On the other hand it seems the Montana Space Navy, the Nuncio Space Force and the Spindle Space Navy were some minor forces, operating LACs only.
- The space forces of other Talbott Quadrant members were not mentioned. Pequod was covered by the RTU navies. (SI2)
Ground branch Edit

A modern LAC was defined as a primary local defense platform. Initially deployed LACs belonged to the Royal Manticoran Navy, but as of 1922 PD started local LAC training programme.
It was planned to produce ground troops equpiment within Talbott Quadrant.
