|271st Assault Cluster|
|Unit Profile (as of 3059)|
|Nickname||The Big Bad Wolves|
|Parent Formation||Gamma Galaxy|
In 3059 the 271st Wolf Guards Assault Cluster was populated by a high percentage of freeborns and warriors taken from other Clans in Harvest Trials. As they had a large number of fighting styles and tactical abilities, the 271st was assigned to be Gamma Galaxy's troubleshooter unit.
During the withdrawal of Clan Wolf forces from their occupation zone into the Lyran Commonwealth, Gamma Galaxy served as a rear-guard force. The 271st Wolf Guard Assault Cluster was the only unit to face combat. They performed a Trial of Possession for some sensor data captured by Clan Sea Fox. Their victory insured that the Wolf's relocation wouldn't be opposed by other Clan units.
The commanding officer in 3059 was Star Colonel Krems. One light Star in this Cluster is commanded by Lucas (Mason), a Lyran Commonwealth citizen trapped on Tamar in 3051. His mother commanded the Chahar Melissia Theater Militia in 3062.
