The CJF Jade Talon was an Aegis-class heavy cruiser in service within the Clan Jade Falcon touman. During Operation REVIVAL the Jade Talon supported the Falcon Guards Cluster. In or around 3053 the Jade Talon was responsible for helping to crush a major AFFC raid on Sudeten.
As at 3059 the Jade Talon was one of nine Aegis-class vessels serving in the Jade Falcon touman, operating alongside the CJF Black Talon, CJF Blue Talon, CJF Frost Falcon, CJF Gold Talon, CJF Hawk Eye, CJF Janice Hazen, CJF Red Talon and CJF White Talon. The Jade Talon would continue to be an active part of the touman throughout the next decade and into the beginnings of the Jihad.
The Jade Talon survived the Jihad, although by the end of the conflict the Jade Talon was one of only three Aegis-class vessels to remain in the Falcon touman. The Jade Talon remained active into the Dark Age, and in 3136 the Jade Talon took part in the pivotal battle over Sudeten during the Jade Falcon Civil War as a part of the forces loyal to Malvina Hazen. Despite receiving heavy damage the Jade Talon was responsible for crippling the Nightlord-class battleship CJF Emerald Talon.
