5th Scorpion Cuirassiers (Escorpión Imperio)

5th Scorpion Cuirassiers
Unit Profile (as of 3086)
Nickname Forked Ambition
Parent Formation Beta Galaxy


Clan Goliath Scorpion[edit]

The Fifth Scorpion Cuirassiers formed part of Rho Galxay and the Roche garrison in 3059. During the Harvest Trials that occurred after the Jade Falcon/Wolf conflict, they bid away their Thirteenth Battle Trinary to the Fourth Striker Cluster of Clan Wolf.[1]

In 3067 the Fifth was still stationed on Roche[2] and it appears it remained here until 3079. At this point it was likely transferred to Beta Galaxy as it formed part of Beta in 3086 and Rho Galaxy did not take part in the invasion of Nueva Castile or the Umayyad Caliphate.[3]


As of 3061 to 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Sargon, a former member of ex-Khan Nikolai Djerassi's experimental sibko.[1][2] By 3086 command had fallen to Star Colonel Manuel.[4]


Used to fighting in poor conditions, particularly stormy ones.

Game Rules[edit]
