History[edit]

The Seventy-eighth Hellion Lancers Cluster was equipped with heavier equipment than was usually seen in Clan Ice Hellion. This equipment was usually slower than most Hellion gear, and so the Seventy-eighth was used to operating by itself.[1] During the Hellion's Fury campaign, the Seventy-eighth landed on Foster to face the Twenty-first Vanguard Battle Cluster. They successfully defeated the Mandrill unit.[2]

The Seventy-eighth had suffered heavy losses lately, in part because of the recent internal fighting within the Clan.[3]

In 3067 the 78th is stationed on the world of Hector.[4]

Officers[edit]

The unit was led by Star Colonel Grace Lienet in 3050.[1]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Grace Lienet.[3]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Patricia Rood.[4]

Tactics[edit]

The Seventy-eighth was charged with assaulting enemies who were too heavily entrenched for normal Ice Hellion tactics. Towards this, they were assigned heavier OmniMechs.[3]
