History[edit]

The 120th Strike Cluster formerly served as a garrison on Marshall.[1] They were stationed on the world of Delios in 3067.[2] By 3070 they had moved to Glory.[3]

A combined Scorpion and Kindraa Mattila-Carrol assault on Glory in December 3071 quickly overwhelmed the 120th Strike Cluster, which fell into chaos when Star Colonel Harm Tchernovkov was killed early in the fighting. The Fourteenth Scorpion Grenadiers pushed through the Coyotes line, while the Sixty-first Firestorm Cluster outflanked the 120th as they tried to retreat. Star Captain Blaise was forced to surrender what was left of the cluster at the end of the day, and the Coyote holdings were divided between the two Clans.[3]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 to 3071 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Harm Tchernovkov.[1][2][3]

Tactics[edit]

The Cluster was often employed to pin an opponent in place.
