History[edit]

In rebuilding after taking major damage against Clan Steel Viper's Ninth Fang on Waldorff in June 3057.

During the Refusal War the Seventh Talon was stationed on Butler as that was where the Falcons assumed Clan Wolf would attack. This later proved incorrect, so they were out of position.[1]

During the Jade Falcon Incursion in the FedCom Civil War, the 7th Talon attacked Kikuyu. There they attacked the 6th Donegal Guards, driving the Lyran unit to the brink of destruction. Unfortunately for the Talons, the Lyran troops won a Trial of Possession for a two week cease-fire. During this time most of the Donegal Guards left the world and relocated to Blue Hole.[2] The Seventh Talon destroyed the remaining Donegal Guards units on Kikuyu and followed the survivors to Blue Hole. There they destroyed the 6th Donegal Guards and Storm's Metal Thunder. They were inflicting serious casualties on the 8th Deneb Light Cavalry, but the untimely arrival of Clan Wolf-in-Exile's First Wolf Legion prevented them from destroying the Light Cavalry unit.[3] After the fighting on Blue Hole, they withdrew to Kikuyu.[4]

In 3061 they were fighting on Waldorff vs Clan Steel Viper in the final battle of the war [5]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Daniel Kyle.
