First Draconis Combine/Ghost Bear War[edit]

Two of the Claws from Zeta Galaxy were actively involved in the First Draconis Combine / Ghost Bear War, which began in 3062 with a suicidal attack by three regiments of the Alshain Avengers against Alshain.[1] An all-Elemental cluster, the First Claw battled the Nova Cats on Mualang alongside a Mech cluster from Beta Galaxy, the Twelfth Bear Chevaliers.[2] The Nova Cat forces were kept pinned in place, preventing them from assisting the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery.[3] The First fought well, but took heavy losses.[2]


As of 3061 the Commanding Officer was Galaxy Commander Jocelyn Vong[4] who continued to command the First Claw and Zeta Galaxy until at least as late as the eve of the Jihad in 3067.[5]


As one show case unit for battlearmor warfare the cluster is highly skilled in the use of infantry tactics.[4]
