History[edit]

The original cluster name is not recorded, but it was re-formed in the late 3050s as the Thirty-third Combined Strike Cluster after it had lost a large amount of personnel to the front-line Galaxies.[1] In 3060 the Thirty-third was stationed on Priori.[2]

By 3067 the Cluster had been assigned to the CDS Bold Venture as a mobile force.[3]

With the loss of the Bold Venture at Salonika in early July 3072 it is assumed that the clusters was either destroyed or captured by Clan Burrock forces.[4]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Korin Horn, he was still in command in 3067.[1][3]

Tactics[edit]

The Cluster prefers smaller engagements, where they excel. During combat a large enemy force is broken into smaller parts, which are defeated in turn.[1]
