The Dead Horse Infantry Company is the official NCR designation for the roughly 150 tribesmen of the Dead Horses who joined the Allied effortin the NCR Arizona Offensive. The unit was led by Joshua Graham, the infamous former Malpais Legate turned Dead Horses war chief and bitter enemy of the Legion after his botched execution.
After assisting the Dead Horses in ridding Zion of White Legs, as well as the NCR victory at the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, the enigmatic figure known as Courier Six is said to have returned to Zion with news of the formation of a coalition dedicated to attacking the Legion in their core territory of Arizona, with the eventual goal of taking Nova Roma (formerly Flagstaff) and eliminating the Legion leadership, effectively destabilizing the faction and eliminating them as a major threat in the Legion. Graham was immediately was enthusiastic about the offer, and traveled to New Vegas to meet with representatives of the other factions. Graham agreed to provide and lead a unit of 150 volunteers from the Dead Horses on the expedition, which the NCR agreed to supply with weapons and ammunition, as well as provide trucks for transport.
The NCR provided the Dead Horse Infantry Company with M16A1 assault rifles and M199 carbines, as well as M249 SAW light machine guns and FGM-199 Missile Launchers, giving the unit additional firepower. The Dead Horse Infantry also carried M1911 pistols and Thompson submachine guns captured from the White Legs, which could be integrated into the unit easily enough, as .45 ACP ammunition was common in NCR inventories. Finally, the Dead Horses retained their traditional war clubs as close-range melee weapons. The NCR had also given the Dard Horses standard army uniforms as well, but with different markings to reflect their tribal origins.

The Dead Horse Infantry Company played a major role in the Battle of Williams after the Legion forces ambushed the NCR column. In this engagement, their submachine guns and war clubs proved the be ideal weapons for engaging the legionaries at close range.
