These Clan mechanized forces are used for reconnaissance purposes, although their minimal armor and light weaponry limited their usefulness in stand-up fights. The 67th BattleMech Cluser, Iota Galaxy of Clan Hell's Horses maintain an unusually large number of these Cavalry Points, in spite of (or perhaps because of) their frequent use as decoys to allow damaged scout tanks to retreat.
Each Cavalry Point is limited in part to carrying only Mauser IIC Laser Rifles because of the weight requirements of their small hovercraft.
