Mercenary groups are actually quite common in the 3I. Their services are used bu MegaCorperations as added security and sabotage actions against other MegaCorperate interests, or what have you.

On any number of worlds planetary governments (especially on gov code 7 worlds) use mercs for nearly any tickets you can imagine. Security, extraction, aniti- terrorism, putting down rebellions, as support in Gov vs Gov actions, even as front line troops when the mercs can bring a high tech advantage to the field.

Mainly this is due to the 3Is hands off policy concerning planetary governments, and so long as what ever warfare they are involved in does not effect 3I interests (trade/the starport/the local 3I nobles land grant) and so long as they dont engage in black war tactics, the sky is the limit to what they can be involved in.
The Third Imperium is a strong as it has to be, as weak as it can risk to be, as good as it can, as evil as it must, and as blind as it chooses.
