Alpha Newt (Clan Steel Viper)
|Unit Profile (as of 3072)|
|Parent Formation||Alpha Galaxy|
Alpha Newt were one of Clan Steel Vipers training units, led by experienced officers. The Newt Trinaries teach the newly graduated warriors to fight as a unit and act as "feeder" units for the front line Galaxies.
In June 3052, Alpha Newt was committed to an invasion of Blackjack alongside the Fourth Viper Guards and Alpha Solahma Clusters. The three Viper units faced the Third and Fourth Talon Clusters of Clan Jade Falcon. The lanet fell to the Vipers within 24 hours.
