History[edit]

The 233rd Battle Cluster appears to have been part of the invasion force but was not employed in combat in the Inner Sphere. It was not posted in the Occupation Zone after the Battle of Tukayyid.[1] It was likely stationed in the Deep Periphery as it was assigned to patrolling the Exodus Road as of 3061.[2] However, by 3067 the cluster had moved to Marshall.[3]

The final fate of the 233rd Battle Cluster is not known, but they would not have survived the destruction of Beta Galaxy or that of Clan Steel Viper in 3075.[4]

Officers[edit]

Between 3061 and 3067 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Jen Ahmed.[2][3]

Tactics[edit]

The Cluster was known to fight with ferocity and was very experienced in small scale warfare and countering raids.[2]
