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. The battle was over in a matter of hours.[1]

Post Invasion[edit]

In 3054[2] the cluster was stationed on Twycross with the bulk of Gamma Galaxy. After several years of inactivity the Ninety-fourth attacked Jade Falcon forces on Trinity, initially winning, but were forced off world when reinforcements arrived.[3] By 3060 the cluster had been posted to Trell I.[4]

Ejection from the Inner Sphere[edit]

During the withdrawal from the Inner Sphere the Ninety-fourth took heavy casualties along with other clusters of Gamma Galaxy. This prompted the Khan to disband the Fifty-first Battle Cluster and reinforce the Ninety-fourth with the survivors.[5]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Ivan Sinclair, who had been in command since at least 3058.[3]

Tactics[edit]

The cluster was experienced in the use of the Viper's Maw tactic and fought in conjunction with the other clusters of the galaxy effectively.[3]
