History[edit]

The Twenty-third Scorpion Cuirassiers form one of the strongest defensive units available to the Goliath Scorpions. Though they focus on defense, they have also been used to launch attacks that shatter an enemy formation, forcing the opposing unit from the field.[1] They formed the other Marshall garrison unit in 3061[2] and were still there in 3067.[3]

The Cuirassiers were wiped out in the fighting of the Trial of Refusal against the election of Garret Sainze to ilKhan; a three-day campaign against Clan Fire Mandrill fought on Shadow in 3072.[4]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 to 3067 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Colin Yeh.[1][3]
