195th Striker (Clan Steel Viper)
|195th Striker Cluster|
|Unit Profile (as of 3061)|
|Nickname||The Black Mambas|
|Parent Formation||Beta Galaxy|
The 195th had landed with expectations of an easy victory, but the battle bogged down for three months, with neither side able to land a decisive blow. Finally, the commanders of both sides agreed to a personal duel to settle the fight, which Star Colonel Paul Thibaudeau of the 195th won.
This campaign left a stain on the reputation of the 195th, which they tried to erase with a raid on Evciler in 3055. However, Galaxy Commander Jonathon Mercer died fighting the Seventh Falcon Regulars in this action, which led to a continuing feud between the 195th and the Seventh.
Ejection from the Inner Sphere
The Cluster fights with ferocity and is very experienced in small scale warfare, because the unit blocked many raids of other clans successfully.
