History[edit]

The Seventh Battle Cluster was a part of Clan Wolf. Shortly after the Wolverine Annihilation, the Seventh faced Clan Jade Falcon on Eden. During that Trial the unit was shattered. After action reports indicated that the unit suffered the loss because it ran out of ammunition. Since that time the Seventh uses 'Mechs that are equipped with energy weapons. This allowed the Seventh to operate away from logistical support, and so in 2833 it was an excellent bandit-hunting unit.[1]

On Dagda in 2834 the Seventh joined with the 1015th Burrock Guards and the First Falcon Striker to destroy Clan Widowmaker's Third Battle Cluster. The Wolves and their allies were successful, but the Falcons quickly issued a challenge for the Widowmaker enclave. The Falcons lost this challenge.[2]

Operation Revival[edit]

The Seventh Battle Cluster fought on the following worlds during the invasion of the Inner Sphere:

Periphery[edit]

Wave Five[edit]

...

Refusal War[edit]

Post Refusal War[edit]

In 3058 the Seventh Battle Cluster engaged elements of the Jade Falcon's Fifth Battle Cluster on Tomans.[3] The Seventh was rebuilt around a Binary of warriors who survived the Refusal War. To quickly rebuild, the Seventh was expanded with a pair of mixed Trinaries from Clan Coyote and a Binary of former Clan Star Adder OmniMechs.[4]

Invasion of the Republic[edit]

The unit was part of the Clan Wolf invasion of Prefecture IX to ultimately capture Terra. The unit commander bid against Star Colonel Edward's Third Battle Cluster for right to conqueror Alkalurops.

In the late 3110's, the Seventh Battle Cluster fought a Trial of Possession against the Second Tyr Cluster for a Vanir DropShip. The Seventh wasn't successful, and the Vanir remained with the Ghost Bear unit.[5]

In 3141 the Seventh was on Hollabrunn. They faced the Wolf Hunters on that world, and were destroyed by the mercenary unit there.[6]

Officers[edit]

In 2833 the Seventh was commanded by Star Colonel Britta Shaw.[1] She was killed fighting Clan Widowmaker's Third Battle Cluster. She forced the Third's commander, Maria Isaacs, over the edge of a cliff.[2]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Dirk Radick.

During Operation Revival, the Seventh was commanded by Star Colonel Carmin Winson.

In 3141 the unit was commanded by Star Colonel Bart Radick.[7]
