History[edit]

The Ninety-third Assault Cluster was a unit in the service of Clan Steel Viper. Prior to Operation Revival, the Ninety-third was a frequent participant in raids against Clans Ice Hellion and Snow Raven. The Cluster raided Snow Raven holdings on Hellgate in 3055 and 3059, losing both engagements.[1] In 3060 the Cluster was stationed on Arcadia,[2] by 3067 the cluster had moved to New Kent.[3]

In November 3069 the Ninety-third assaulted the Jade Falcon holdings on Huntress. They made a combat drop onto the Falcon's Eyrie position and then used their DropShips as planetary transport to hunt down and destroy the 3rd Falcon Dragoons.[4]

September 3073 saw Clan Goliath Scorpion forces land on Glory to support Kindraa Mattila-Carrol that were barely hanging on to their enclave at Portage. The Vipers had been attacking the Kindraa for sometime. The arrival of the Scorpions sparked a short naval battle before they landed on the planet. On 30th September the Mandrills fired upon the Ninety-thirds positions. The Ninety-third moved out to engage the Mandrills leaving only a trinary as rear guard. however this trinary was attacked and overrun by the Scorpions driving the Ninety-third into the waiting Mandrills and destroying the cluster.[5]
