|Unit Profile (as of 3145)|
|Parent Formation||Tundra Galaxy|
|Formed||Late 31st Century|
Created during the later years of 31st Century, like other Drakøns Clusters, the unit would adopt its sister unit's traits of the Combat Vehicle only Trinaries, while MechWarriors would still be embracing the use of Melee weapons for close-quarters combat.
The Second Combine-Dominion War
The unit's most noted action was in the Second Battle of Labrea in October 3199, where the Second was teamed with First and the Fourth Bear Regulars. The Second's Aerospace elements would be first to encounter Clan Nova Cat's forces led by saKhan Heather Winters, helping destroy the Nova Cat Legers's DropShip while trying to burn towards the planet. During the month long battle for the planet, a crippled Nova Cat DropShip would plunge itself into Second while on the battlefield. The Broadsword-Class DropShip would take out nine 'Mechs and three stars of Elementals of the Second with it in the resulting explosion on impact. By November 19th the Second along with First Drakøns would be nearly exhausted by the fighting and forced to withdraw from the planet.
Late Dark Age Era
Tundra Galaxy be positioned close to Falcon's Reach near the former Republic of the Sphere border. The Second would be part of the plan to cut off the supply lines into the Falcon's holdings should they be needed.
The Cluster, like other Drakøns units, prefer close-quarter combat, preferring to use melee attacks.
