History[edit]

The Seventh Assault Cluster gained a reputation in the thirtieth century of steadfast resilience in the face of extreme odds, when on two separate occasions it had successfully repelled forces three times larger than itself.[1]

Between 3060 and 3067 the Seventh was stationed on Foster.[2][3]

In December 3074 the Steel Vipers launched a massive assault on against Clan Coyote on Tamaron with six Galaxies and a large naval force. Lambda Galaxy including the Seventh was part of the Coyote defending force. The Vipers made planetfall despite the fierce aerospace attacks. After a week fighting the Viper forces made for their objectives, several major factory complexes in the Apache Mountains. The fighting to defend these saw Lambda Galaxy and the Seventh destroyed.[4]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 to 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Nathaniel Jerricho.[1][3]

Tactics[edit]

The Cluster was highly adaptable to all terrain and weather conditions.
