History[edit]

The Cluster was defeated by a Clan Snow Raven second-line unit while raiding Hellgate in 3059.[1]

In 3060 the Cluster was stationed on Grant's Station, but by 3067 it had moved to New Kent.[2] [3]

War of Reaving[edit]

In January 3072 the Sixty-first Striker Cluster along with the Second Eridani Lancers Cluster from Clan Goliath Scorpion landed on Shadow to join forces with Clan Coyote to undertake the Reaving of Kindraa Mick-Kline-Kreese-Sainze. As was agreed the Coyote force attacked first their assault caught the defenders totally by surprise as did their inclusion of new technologies such as the Assault ProtoMechs, so much so that their three to one odds could not prevent a Coyote victory. The surviving Fire Mandrills including saKhan Dakar Mick surrendered themselves to the Coyote force and were slaughtered by the Coyote Elemental Honor Guard. The honor Guard then turned their weapons on the attendant Viper and Scorpion warriors as the rest of Lambda Galaxy wiped out both clusters. [4]

Officers[edit]

Between 3061 and 3067 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Sally Bukannon.[1][3]

Tactics[edit]

The combat style of the Cluster was offensively minded.[1]
