History[edit]

Clan Ice Hellion[edit]

By 3059, the Seventh was in danger of total collapse as a military force. Years of neglect had resulted in maintenance and spare parts problems afflicting nearly every BattleMech in the unit, and poor morale among the warriors lead to rumors of several Stars within Beta Trinary leaving to become pirates or join the Bandit Caste.[1]

The Seventh was stationed on the world of Foster in 3067.[2] In 3068 the Cavaliers were engaged in a Harvest Trial by Clan Hells Horses on Hoard, the Cluster was defeated and taken as isorla.[3]

Clan Hell's Horses[edit]

In January 3069 they joined up with Alpha Galaxy on Niles to reinforce against a Clan Fire Mandrill assault. Their counter attack took back the industrial facilities.[4] The Cluster is not mentioned again and it appears that it was disbanded and the warriors were used as replacements in Alpha after the high losses suffered on Tranquil in 3068.

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Lilith. Her inattentiveness was partly to blame for the problems affecting the Seventh.[1]

As of 3067 the commading officer was Star Colonel Shira Klien.[2]

Tactics[edit]

Because of their ageing equipment, the Seventh was forced to use harassment tactics in order to defeat their opponents.[1]
