20th Scorpion Cuirassiers (Clan Goliath Scorpion)
|20th Scorpion Cuirassiers|
|Unit Profile (as of 3072)|
|Parent Formation||Delta Galaxy|
The Twentieth Scorpion Cuirassiers were stationed on Dagda between 3061 and 3067. There they often faced off against Clan Wolf's First Wolf Lancers. Star Colonel Trajan Baba worked very hard to insure that the rivalry remained friendly. He kept five dogs as his familiars, and said he was "walking the dogs" when travelling to challenge the Wolf Warriors.
Wars of Reaving
The Goliath Scorpions launched an attack on Brim in 3072, foregoing any attempt at issuing a batchall and instead simply dropping two of Delta Galaxy's Clusters directly onto one of the three remaining Snow Raven enclaves, which consisted of a city and a Sylph manufacturing factory. The warriors who landed were shocked to discover that the enclave wasn't in fact being protected by Snow Raven warriors, but rather a large Society force.
The Society force demanded a proper batchall, but their demands were ignored by Galaxy Commander Lincoln Dinour and the resulting intense firefight spilled over into a nearby large terraforming research zone. During the battle several of the sealed tanks within the terraforming research area were pierced by stray shots, resulting in a devastating explosion that wiped out half the defending Society forces and the majority of the Goliath Scorpion forces on the ground, including the Twentieth Cuirassiers.
The Twentieth Scorpion Cuirassiers negate any terrain based advantages their foes can use. If there are two branches of service on the field (Mechs, Infantry, AeroSpace, etc.) they get a 1 point Initiative bonus.
