|Unit Profile (as of 3059)|
|Parent Formation||Alpha Galaxy|
During the Operation Revival Trials of Position, the Fifth Assault Cluster represented the Star Adders. Though they weren't fighting for an invasion corridor, the Fifth was determined to force their fellow warriors to perform at their best. During the Trials, the Star Adders defeated the forces from Clan Nova Cat and Clan Fire Mandrill, but lost to Clan Diamond Shark.
During the Revival Trials, the Fifth was led by Star Colonel Imelda Talasko.
The unit can fight in any terrain and prefers longer engagements, because of their heavy equipment. Most battles follow a two step plan. First the fighter soften the opponent up and then the heavy/assault mechs deliver the final blow.
