The Spartan Company is a former UED Expeditionary Force unit, abandoned during the Brood War. After the conflict, they became mercenaries for hire, operating powerful goliaths.[1]

HistoryEdit

The Spartan Company offered its services to Commander Jim Raynor after Raynor's Raiders collected terrazine from Bel'Shir,[1] later accompanying them during Sarah Kerrigan's invasion of Korhal.[2] There were also members in the Moebius Foundation[3] and Mira's Marauders.[4]

Goliaths gain +3 missile range and +1 cannon range.

This advanced targeting system lets the goliath's missiles locate and lock on to more distant targets. The targeting system also features an AI that can better predict the paths of moving targets, letting the goliath's autocannons hit ground targets from a greater distance.[6]

TriviaEdit

The unit portrait bears a close resemblance to Dustin Browder. This is in fact intentional, as people at Blizzard Entertainment have noted via a running joke that Brian Sousa, whose likeness was used for the regular goliath, bears resemblance to Browder, As such, the Spartan Company unit portrait was based on Browder to reflect the joke in-game.[8]
