History[edit]

Alpha Galaxy is the best unit in the Hell's Horses touman. Elements of this Galaxy have been involved in every major campaign undertaken by the Horses, ranging from the Pentagon Wars to the capturing of battle armor technology. The lead Cluster (11th Mechanized Cavalry) joined forces with Clan Coyote forces to destroy Kindraa Smythe-Jewel. It was Alpha Galaxy who inadvertently started the Horses/Clan Ghost Bear feud when a Horses warrior assigned to Alpha accidentally killed Khan Kilborne Jorgensson on Tokasha. Every warrior of Alpha Galaxy is skilled in combined arms tactics, and they are the best equipped warriors in the touman.

The 21st and 22nd Clusters joined Khan Malavi in the Inner Sphere. The 12th Cluster was assigned to work for Clan Wolf, and was mauled in fighting on Hoard. Trials between members of the 11th Cluster reduced that unit's strength as well.[1]

After the Horses moved permanently to the Inner Sphere, they spent much time on Csesztreg supporting Khan Gottfried Amirault.[2] In 3145 Alpha Galaxy Command was stationed on Csesztreg.[3]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Nobel DeLaurel.[4]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Sasha Mitchel.[5]

In 3145 the unit was led by Galaxy Commander Trina Mitchell.[3]

Tactics[edit]

Alpha Galaxy is skilled in combined arms tactics, and frequently deploys equal amounts of infantry and 'Mechs, with some armor support. They fight well in any terrain.[4]
