Clan Ice Hellion Touman

The Clan Ice Hellion Touman is the military arm of Clan Ice Hellion.

Unit Structure[edit]

The Ice Hellions largely follow the standard Clan model in organizing their Clusters, with five Trinaries of three 'Mech, one Aerospace and one Elemental. Front-line Clusters receive the best equipment and warriors, including the most number of OmniMechs and OmniFighters, and are with rare exceptions all trueborn. Second-line Clusters make due with less, taking longer to receive supplies and repairs, and contain a larger number of freeborn warriors alongside aging or disgraced trueborns. They also contain fewer OmniMechs, which are reserved for experienced trueborn commanders. Both front-line and second-line Clusters emphasize the Ice Hellion philosophy of swift attack and agile response on the battlefield, and so rely heavily on light- to medium-weight 'Mechs; heavy and assault machines are often used for garrison duty, again with a preference to speed over armor.[1][2]

Since its founding the Clan traditionally uses light and medium weight 'Mechs, with the aptly-named Hellion serving as their primary machine. A small portion of heavy and assault weight 'Mechs are also produced, primarily for garrison duties, although these too favor speed over armor with designs such as the Gargoyle and Linebacker within their touman. The aerospace assets initially consigned to the Clan were also primarily light and medium weight fighters, although this put the Clan as a disadvantage in dogfighting and eventually were forced to adopted heavier designs, with a preference towards the Visigoth and Sabutai. Where they are used at all Ice Hellion infantry will either be equipped with Battle Armor or, if garrison or solahma units, be outfitted with jump packs or mechanized transport.[3] The general disdain for infantry also meant Ice Hellion Elementals were on average smaller compared to other Clans' bloodlines.[4]

Unique to the Ice Hellions was the creation of so-called Flurry clusters in the wake of the Hellion's Fury campaign in order to hold onto their newly-captured territory. Little more than cannon fodder, Flurry units are loose groupings of mostly freeborns, along with relatively few aging or disgraced truborns, whose only job is to hold an area until proper units can arrive. While organized loosely along standard Cluster lines, the vast majority of a Flurry unit's forces are fast attack hovercraft and VTOLs, with approximately five percent piloting salvaged or decrepit 'Mechs. On occasion these ad hoc units have managed to give a good showing themselves, at least long enough for reinforcements to arrive.[5] By 3067 the number of Flurry units had not only grown, but more and more have proven themselves capable combat units despite the natural Clan bias against combat vehicles, with more of these units spread out amongst the Clan's Galaxies.[6]
