History[edit]

The 103rd Striker Cluster was part of Alpha Galaxy in the short lived Clan Jade Wolf.[1]

The Cluster was stationed on Radstadt in 3059 and assigned to Gamma Galaxy.[2] It had become a dumping ground for second rate warriors and machines, causing it to have a very low morale. In 3058 a Trinary of former Clan Ice Hellion warriors was added to the cluster, these had been taken in the Harvest Trials.[3]

In 3060 forces from Clan Ghost Bear attacked Radstadt and after a long hard fought battle forced the 103rd Striker Cluster from the planet.[4] This loss prompted Khan Ward to shift Gamma Galaxy away from the Ghost Bear border. A move that the Galaxy Commander took personally and caused her to instigate tough reforms on the Cluster for its failure.[5]

By 3067 the Cluster had taken up a posting on Wheel. It had received new equipment, including OmniMechs and was considered a veteran front line formation.[6]

The Cluster was stationed on the world of Planting in 3085.[7]

Officers[edit]

Between 3058 and 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Cathlee Jorgensson.[1][3][6] By 3085 Star Colonel Fabian Crow had taken command.[7]
