History[edit]

The Thirty-fourth Strike Cluster successfully engaged Clan Ice Hellion forces on Londerholm in 3060 and were still on planet in 3061.[1] In 3067 the cluster was stationed on Foster.[2]

Wars of Reaving[edit]

The Thirty-fourth along with the rest of Delta Galaxy had laid siege to the Clan Goliath Scorpion enclave on Foster. Delta had slowly been devastating the industrial areas with long range artillery barrages from positions on the hills overlooking the area. In March 3073 Scorpion reinforcements landed on to the planet and led a flanking charge of Delta, quickly overrunning one artillery position. The Sixty-seventh Assault Cluster steadied the Coyotes retreating lines, allowing the Ninth and Thirty-fourth Strike Clusters to counter-attack the Scorpion's Gamma Galaxy destroying it. By June 3073 Delta had pulled off planet.[3]

The Thirty-fourth was part of the force that assaulted Vinton in August 3073 after months of hard fighting they withdrew in July 3074.[4] In December 3074 the Steel Vipers launched a massive assault on against Clan Coyote on Tamaron with six Galaxies and a large naval force. Delta Galaxy including the Thirty-fourth was part of the Coyote defending force. The Vipers made planetfall despite the fierce aerospace attacks. After a week fighting the Viper forces made for their objectives, several major factory complexes in the Apache Mountains before moving on to the capital. The fighting to defend the capital city saw Delta Galaxy and the Thirty-fourth destroyed.[5]

Officers[edit]

Between 3061 and 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Armin Tamzarian.[6][2]
