The 26 RTI Special Tactics Group was the commando detachment of the 26th Royal Tyran infantry and of the Special Tactics Group.
The 26 RTI STG operated under the command of Major Victor Hoffman near the end of the Pendulum Wars. They received training from Sgt. Bernadette Mataki on survival techniques behind enemy lines. The commandos were selected to infiltrate Aspho Point and secure the Hammer of Dawn technology, and deny it to the UIR. They, along with a group of Pesang volunteers, entered Aspho Point from the sea via Marlins, and captured the data and several UIR scientists, but as they exfiltrated, a pair of Khimeras attacked the boats. Half the commandos and several Pesangs were killed, but the rest escaped, and were honored by the COG for securing the Hammer of Dawn technology.
