History[edit]

Operation Revival[edit]

Wave Five[edit]

The Ninety-fourth Battle Cluster emerged victorious from a Trial of Possession against Clan Jade Falcon to win the right for Clan Steel Viper to attempt to retake Twycross from the Federated Commonwealth forces.[1]

The actual attack was undertaken by the 423rd Assault, 428th Assault and Ninety-Fourth Battle Clusters. Landing under the cover of the Diabolis sandstorms, the 423rd and 428th defeated the Tenth Lyran Guards RCT by using the Viper's Maw tactic, while the Ninety-fourth engaged the Ninth Federated Commonwealth RCT and forced them back to the spaceport.[1]

The battle was over in a matter of hours.
