An Alliance rear admiral once unfairly dismissed the Salarian Third Fleet as nothing more than "an over-abundance of spy-planes." While the salarians rely heavily on gathering intelligence in any way, the Third Fleet's firepower is comparable to any other major naval force. Its vessels use the latest GARDIAN defense systems, with improved tracking algorithms to handle a greater number of projectiles than older models. Even its scouting flotillas have been armed with hull-mounted Thanix cannons, developed in conjunction with the turian military.
Now that their egg clutched are out of danger, the salarian colony Senoquol is shipping all the materials and weapons it can muster to the Third Fleet.
