History[edit]

After Operation Revival the Third Battle Cluster provided the Jade Falcon Garrison for their enclave on Strana Mechty. However in practice the Cluster detailed one Trinary to serve as the Honor Guard, with the balance of the unit functioning as a mobile reserve force throughout the 3050s and 3060s.[1][2][3]

In 3061 the Falcons confronted Clan Diamond Shark over that Clan selling their Ha Otoko BattleMech to the Inner Sphere. The Sharks called for a Trial of Refusal stating it was the warrior that made the difference not the machine and defended with second line 'Mechs only. The Third was chosen to represent the Falcons, but were defeated.[4]

In January 3070 the Steel Viper's Triasch Keshik assaulted the Falcon holdings on Strana Mechty and after only a few hours had destroyed every last Falcon warrior.[5]

Officers[edit]

In 3059 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Maraig Binetti.[1] By 3067 Sujatha Mattlov had taken command.[3]
