Alpha Galaxy (Clan Ice Hellion)
|Unit Profile (as of 3067)|
|Nickname||The Blinding Keshik|
|Parent Formation||Clan Ice Hellion Touman|
Alpha Galaxy was formed at the very beginning of Clan Ice Hellion's existence. It was severely weakened and reduced to a single Cluster after the secret Trial of Annihilation between saKhan Wick and Khan Norizuchi in 3000. By 3059 the Galaxy had been rebuilt into a swift and powerful force. Warriors of the Alpha Galaxy took part of Clan Coyote led attack on Clan Cloud Cobra's Babylon Diet in 3065. It was noted that this was not an officially sanctioned attack by the Clan itself, but of individual warriors. Very few of these warriors returned to duty, with many other from this attack missing and assumed killed.
Alpha Galaxy practices blitzkrieg warfare, using their maneuverability to strike quickly and with overwhelming firepower. Its Clusters employ special "headhunter" units to specifically target the enemy command structure and thereby weaken their foes' response. However, this emphasis on fast striking power leaves them vulnerable in static battles with little room to maneuver.
