72nd Crimson Cuirassiers (Clan Blood Spirit)

72nd Crimson Cuirassiers Cluster
Unit Profile (as of 3070)
Nickname None
Parent Formation Alpha Galaxy


The 72nd Crimson Cuirassiers Cluster missed the Burrock Absorption together with the 112th Scarlet Battle Cluster due to a jump-drive core leak on their JumpShip. With the destruction of Delta Galaxy, the Seventy-second was transferred to Alpha Galaxy.[1]

Alpha Galaxy and the Cuirassiers remained on the defensive on York, counter attacking where possible. Between 3059 and 3066 they saw almost constant fighting fending off raids by Clan Star Adder. [2]

In late 3069 Khan Schmitt led Alpha and Iota Galaxies against the Adders on Albion quickly capturing a Chrysaor ProtoMech factory and by the end of the year had secured 40% of the planet. The Khan then led Alpha against Clan Steel Viper holdings on Arcadia and captured their Roc ProtoMech complex. [3] Alpha Galaxy and the Cuirassiers were involved in near constant fighting on York but by 3070 had reduced the Adder holdings to a single enclave. [4]


In 3059 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Sibyl Noruff.[1] By 3067 it was Carmen DeLuca. [5]
