History[edit]

The Sixty-ninth Dragoon Cluster was a former Clan Burrock unit known as the Fifteenth Rapier Cluster.[1].

Clan Burrock[edit]

The Fifteenth Rapier Cluster, were part of Clan Burrock's Beta Galaxy.[2] They fought against the Wolf Clan's Third Battle Cluster in the Trial of Refusal Ulric Kerensky requested to stop Operation REVIVAL. They fought alongside the Fourth Jaguar Dragoons of Clan Smoke Jaguar. During that Trial, the Cluster was led by Khan Jocelyn Siddiq.[3]

Clan Star Adder[edit]

The Star Adder leaders chose to use them as a Dragoon unit, their light equipment giving them the flexibility that they needed for their new task.[1]

Officers[edit]

In 3048 the unit was commanded by Star Colonel Torrance Marghar.[2]

Tactics[edit]

As a rather unique speciality the warriors of the cluster used Light and Medium 'Mechs for brawling. The unit showed a preference to urban combat and engagement in limited areas.[1]
