Sierra-Three Special Warfare Squadron NAGINATA, better known as Team Naginata, was a standard fireteam-sized formation of SPARTAN-III Gamma Company. Originally a five-man team, Naginata was indefinitely reduced to only four field operators after close-quarters combat specialist Marco-G224 disappeared during a brief shore leave for reasons that remain undisclosed.

Following the deaths of two team members during Operation ICELANDER of the late 2570s, the team was dismantled and the surviving Spartans were given assignments bearing ties to an unknown Naval Intelligence organization.


Behind the Scenes

  • In keeping with established naming conventions, the team received a name shared by a bladed weapon. Specifically, it was named after the naginata, a Japanese pole-type weapon.
