History[edit]

Clan Goliath Scorpion[edit]

The Thirty-Fifth Scorpion Cuirassiers captured the continent Abysmal on Huntress after the main SLDF assault on the Smoke Jaguars in 3060. This action took two hours and in the aftermath the Cuirassiers remained on Huntress to garrison their new conquest.[1] They were still garrisoning Huntress in 3067.[2]

As part of the multi-Clan force Alpha Galaxy including the Thirty-fifth Cuirassiers dropped onto New Kent in mid December 3075 as part of the Steel Viper Annihilation. Alpha secured its main objective of the Shandrake Massif research facility by the end of day two. Fighting continued for a least a further week before orbital bombardment reduced the last Viper strong point to dust. [3]

Officers[edit]

In 3061 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Rik Myers.[1] Myers had been reduced to the rank of Star Colonel by 3067, but still had command of the 35th Cuirassiers.[2] In 3086 the commander was Ires Coddington. [4]
