Nickname The Fangs of Death
Parent Formation Gamma Galaxy


The Fifty-seventh Striker Cluster was a front line unit of Clan Steel Viper.

Operation Revival[edit]


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.[1]

Post Invasion[edit]

Despite the near destruction of the Fifty-seventh on Tukayyid, it was rebuilt.[1] 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.[2]

Ejection from the Inner Sphere[edit]


In 3069 the Cluster lost a Trial of Possession for the Roc ProtoMech complex on Arcadia to the Blood Spirits. [3]


As of 3061 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Robert Grimari, who had been in command since at least 3058.[1]


The Cluster is experienced in the use of the Viper's Maw tactic and can fight also in conjunction with the other Clusters of the Galaxy effectly.[1]
