History[edit]

Clan Invasion Era[edit]

In the 3060s the Ninth Raven Wing Cluster was deployed to Bearclaw, where it provided CAP to supply convoys.[1]

The Dark Age[edit]

In 3144 the Raven Alliance attacked and conquered Sterlington and Kirbyville. Sterlington was defended by the Third Periphery Guard at the time; the Ninth Raven Wing Cluster made very effective use of their Hippogriff ProtoMechs as shock weapons, and in at least one notable instance the Ninth managed to rout a dug-in contingent of the Third Periphery Guard by deploying Elementals and Afreets on the ground before dropping Hippogriffs onto the Third from a high altitude to sweep down. The sudden appearance of the ProtoMechs caused panic and disarray amidst the ranks of the Third, who promptly ran into the arms of a second wave of Raven forces.[2]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Todd Patterson.[1]
