History[edit]

During the Hellion's Fury campaign, they landed on Marshall and faced the Fifth Raven Auxiliaries. They sustained heavy losses during their landing. Only their heaviest 'Mechs were left operational. Despite this, they managed to take the Clan Snow Raven research facility on Marshall.[1] They were rebuilt using exclusively Heavy and Assault Mechs.[2]

In 3067 the Thirty-third was stationed on the world of Londerholm.[3]

In 3070 the Cluster move to Nouveaux Paris with the rest of Delta Galaxy, arriving in September.[4] Mid 3071 saw Delta together with Alpha Galaxy and the newly arrived Zeta Prime Galaxy form the primary attack force under Khan Montrose. This force moved against Clan Jade Falcon industrial worlds of the Falcon Occupation Zone, fighting in multiple systems.[5]

Officers[edit]

In 3050 the unit was led by Star Colonel Samantha Hordwon.[6]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Damon Hawkins, who is abtakha from Clan Ghost Bear.[2]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Hiru.[3]

Tactics[edit]

During the Hellion's Fury campaign, the lighter units of the Cluster would race ahead and engage enemy forces, then break off to allow heavier units to engage. When that occurred, the lighter Stars would then close any gaps in the line and start hunting stragglers.[6]
