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]

SC2 Lab Ultra Capacitors Icon Ultra Capacitors

Attack upgrades improve attack cooldown of affected units by 5% per level.[5]

These self-replicating ultra capacitors reduce the reload time of weapons and systems. Now each of the weapon upgrades at the armory and engineering bay increases attack speed by 5% in addition to increasing damage.

Campaign Acquisition

SC2 Lab VanPlating Icon Vanadium Plating

Armor upgrades increase health of affected units by 5% per level.[5]

We have created a new lightweight alloy called vanadium. Vanadium diffuses weapon impacts much more efficiently than traditional armor plating, and it better preserves the life of our units. Now each of the armor upgrades in the armory and engineering bay increases unit life by 5% in addition to increasing armor.

Multi-lockWeaponsSystem SC2 Icon1 Multi-Lock Weapons System

Allows goliaths to attack air and ground units simultaneously.

This improved version of the goliath allows the missile launcher and autocannons to acquire separate targets and fire simultaneously. This upgrade is ideal when fighting ground targets with heavy air support.[6]

Campaign Acquisition
Acquired from Hyperion armory for $50,000

CharonBooster SC2 Icon1 Ares-Class Targeting System

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]

Campaign Acquisition
Acquired from Hyperion armory for $90,000

Damaged mechanical units recover hit points when out of combat, at a rate of 0.6015 each second.[7]

Our ship and vehicle hulls are now made from a material called Regenerative Bio-Steel. This material uses internal nanobots to slowly repair any damage the hull sustains. While this regeneration process is much slower than conventional SCV repairs, it can be the difference between life and death if no SCVs are available.

Campaign Acquisition
Acquired from Hyperion laboratory for 20 zerg research points

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]
