History[edit]

The Sixty-Ninth Strike Cluster fought on Brim in 3060, here it ran into Cloud Cobra forces while attempting to flank the Star Adders, losing two Trinaries of OmniMechs in the process before being pushed off world after a month of combat.[1] After this action it was stationed on Delios.[2] By 3067 it had moved to Londerholm.[3]

The Cluster survived the Society revolt[4][5], indicating that the warriors remaining in 3075 either did not join with the revolt or could not positively be identified as collaborating and had won a Trial of Refusal to retain their position.[6]

In 3077 the Cluster landed on Ironhold hunting down Society enclaves. Suffering several ambushes and room to room fighting by their Slamanders the Cluster was eventually victorious.[7]

Officers[edit]

In 3061 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Kanya Markopolous.[1] By 3067 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Noemi McKibben,[3] She was still in command in 3085.[5]

Tactics[edit]

The Cluster relied on high speed and manoeuvrability to confuse its enemies.
