History[edit]

They faced the Sixty-seventh Assault Cluster of Clan Coyote and the 212th Jaguar Reserve Cluster from Clan Smoke Jaguar during the Hellion's Fury campaign just after the start of Operation Revival in 3050.[1] The Cluster had landed on Londerholm with the Seventh Attack Cluster and was nearly destroyed in battle against a Coyote trinary. Destruction was averted when Elemental Star Commander Andy eliminated the Coyote's command Star, allowing the rest of the 150th to escape.[2]

In 3067 the 150th was stationed on the world of Babylon.[3]

In 3070 the Lancers moved to Nouveaux Paris with the rest of Alpha Galaxy, arriving in September.[4] Mid 3071 saw Alpha together with Delta Galaxy and the newly arrived Zeta Prime Galaxy form the primary attack force under Khan Montrose. This force moved against Clan Jade Falcon industrial worlds of the Falcon Occupation Zone, fighting in multiple systems.[5]

The Lancers were destroyed on Romulus in January 3072 fighting against elements of the Jade Falcon's Alpha and Delta Galaxies.[6]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Phillepe Lienet.[2] He also commanded the unit in 3050.[7]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Andy Hordwon.[3]

Tactics[edit]

Like the rest of Alpha Galaxy, the 150th favors fast assaults and using their superior speed to outmaneuver their enemies.[2]

During the Hellion's Fury campaign, the 150th would use light OmniMechs to drop Elementals off at the front lines. These Omnis then withdrew from the immediate conflict, only to return a few minutes later to support their Elementals. This tended to disrupt enemy forces because they didn't expect the Omnis to support their battle armor brethren.[7]
