Clan Coyote Touman

The Clan Coyote Touman is the military arm of Clan Coyote.

Unit Structure[edit]

Clan Coyote maintains unique front-line Galaxy formations, composed of a Command Trinary and five 'Mech-equipped Clusters, one of which is designated a reserve Cluster. This fifth Cluster is held as a strategic reserve, used to provide reinforcements and harass the enemy on extended campaigns. Despite their second-line status, these Clusters are just as capable as the rest of the Galaxy and used during bidding.[1] True second-line Galaxies are composed of three to four 'Mech-equipped Clusters, some of which are Solahma units. The latter are restricted to using standard BattleMechs instead of the more valuable OmniMechs.[1]

Standard front-line and reserve Clusters are composed of three 'Mech, one aerospace and one Elemental Trinary, led by a command Star or Nova. One of the 'Mech Trinaries is often upgrade to a Supernova. Second-line and Solahma Clusters are limited to three to four Trinaries led by a command Star, with fewer OmniMechs and, in some cases, no aerospace or Elemental forces. Some Solahma Clusters strictly use conventional armor and infantry, and are treated as little more than cannon fodder or as an insult to be used against a hated foe.[1]
