The unit was originally the 40th Mechanized Cavalry Cluster of Clan Hell's Horses known as the Apollo Cluster. It was stationed on Eden between 3059 and 3067 [1] [2]

Clan Stone Lion[edit]

After the creation of Clan Stone Lion in 3075 during the Wars of Reaving, the Cluster was renamed the 40th Iron Guards and became part of that Clan's Touman.[3]

Officers[edit]

Between 3059 and 3067 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Zigfried Ravenwater. [4] [2] Magnus DeVillar was appointed Galaxy Commander during the early stages of the Wars of Reaving and took control of the Fortieth. [5]

Having been deprived of air cover for so long, the cluster operates poorly when it is provided.
