Unit Profile (as of 3067)
Nickname None
Parent Formation Rho Galaxy


The Third Fang was a second line cluster, after the Battle of Tukayyid it was composed primarily of test-down warriors from clusters that had fought in that battle. Few experienced warriors were willing to command the Third at this time.[1] In 3054 it was stationed on Benfled, but by 3060 it had been transferred to Jabuka.[2][3]

By 3067 the cluster had moved to New Kent.[4]

The final fate of the Cluster is not known, but they would not have survived the destruction of Rho Galaxy or that of Clan Steel Viper in 3075.[5]


Between 3061 and 3067 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Yvgeny.[1][4]


In the 3050s the cluster was often opposition force during training cycles for the clusters of Alpha Galaxy. This gave the Cluster an advantage in defensive operations and they knew how to use Inner Sphere tactics against raiders with great effect.[1]
