History[edit]

In 3067 the Fifty-third Striker was stationed on Barcella.[1]

During the Hellion Shell Games between 3068 and 3070 the Cluster arrived on Hector to relieve the 78th Hellion Lancers where they were engaged in a Trial of Possession by Clan Star Adder looking to secure a Trinary of Ice Ferret 'Mechs. The Irregulars defeated the Adders and soon moved on from the system.[2]

In 3070 the Cluster moved to Nouveaux Paris with the rest of Delta Galaxy, arriving in September.[3] Mid 3071 saw Delta together with Alpha Galaxy and the newly arrived Zeta Prime Galaxy form the primary attack force under Khan Montrose. This force moved against Clan Jade Falcon industrial worlds of the Falcon Occupation Zone, fighting in multiple systems.[4]

The Fifty-third surrendered to Clan Jade Falcon on Romulus in January 3072 and were taken as bondsmen by Clan Jade Falcon.[5][6]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Perry Taney.[7]

In 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Ward Tyler and he was still in command in 3072.[1][6]
