57th Striker (Clan Steel Viper)
|57th Striker Cluster|
|Unit Profile (as of 3069)|
|Nickname||The Fangs of Death|
|Parent Formation||Gamma Galaxy|
The Fifty-seventh Striker Cluster was a front line unit of Clan Steel Viper.
The Fifty-seventh Striker was the unit that broke the stalemate at Devil's Bath on Tukayyid. Using their speed, the Cluster flanked and isolated the 6th Com Guard Division, but only at the cost of rendering the Fifty-seventh combat ineffective.
Despite the near destruction of the Fifty-seventh on Tukayyid, it was rebuilt. In July 3052, the Cluster was sent to seize Parakoila from Clan Jade Falcon. With the world judged to have little inherent value, the 5th PGC made only a token effort to defend the planet before retreating.
