History[edit]

Border Raid of 3071[edit]

In late 3071, the unit was warned that Ramora was about to be raided. House Davion's mercenary unit, the Screaming Eagles, had deployed three Battalions worth of BattleMechs to attack the planet. The Borderers defended, along with a Clan Snow Raven trinary from the 6th Battle Cluster. The Borderers were destroyed along with their Clan allies in course of battle. [1]

Officers[edit]

Chairman Deborah Razer. A gifted bombardier, she won the bombing competition by dropping 87 out of 100 on target with the other thirteen drifting not more than 15 meters.
