History[edit]

The First Legion was stationed on Blair Atholl in 3054[1] and faced several attacks by Federated Commonwealth forces after the Invasion. In 3055, the First repelled an assault launched by the Eleventh Avalon Hussars. In 3057, the Third Battalion of the Kathil Uhlans managed to destroy a BattleMech Trinary belonging to the First.[2] The Cluster remained on Blair Atholl until at least 3061.[3]

By 3067 the cluster had moved to Grant's Station.[4]

The final fate of the Cluster is not known, but they would not have survived the destruction of Chi Galaxy or that of Clan Steel Viper in 3075.[5]

Officers[edit]

Between 3061 and 3067 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Suzan Tibaudeau.[2][4]

Tactics[edit]

In contrast to the other two clusters of Chi Galaxy in 3061 the First Legion was a garrison unit, which prefered to fight defensive engagements.[2]
