The Fifth Raven Wing Cluster is a Clan Snow Raven military command.


The unit was deployed to Homer in 3060 against Clan Steel Viper's Fourteenth Viper Regulars, who declined to send their own aerospace fighters into mass combat with the Fifth.[1]

The Fifth Raven Wing left their garrison of Rezak's Hole to assault Antallos in November 3067. The Periphery world hosted Vance Rezak and his Band of the Damned. The Ravens eliminated the pirates and the remnants of Vinson's Vigilantes.[2][3][4]

In March 3071, the Fifth Raven Wing was badly damaged in the Dante system during a Word of Blake assault that decimated a Galaxy worth of troops.[5][6]


The commanding officer was Star Colonel Maury Lanknau from at least 30613067.[1][2][7]


The Fifth are experts in atmospheric dogfighting.[7]
