The Clan Jade Falcon Touman is the military arm of Clan Jade Falcon.

Unit Structure[edit]

Up through to the Refusal War, the Jade Falcons largely followed the standard Clan practice of organizing their Clusters. Front-line Clusters were comprised of three OmniMechs Trinaries, one Elemental Trinary and one OmniFighter Trinary, with some variation between units. Second-line Clusters varied greater in composition, between two to four Trinaries or three to five Binaries. They largely maintained the same level of equipment as in front-line units, with some second-line or even Inner Sphere refitted machines making appearances.[1] Although the Jade Falcons made use of Nova and Supernova formations, they were formed on an as-needed basis.[2]

In comparison, garrison and solahma units had few Omni vehicles, instead making due with traditional BattleMechs and AeroSpace Fighters. They also made due with conventional infantry instead of Elementals. With exception to armored personnel carries to transport infantry into battle, even these units deployed no combat vehicles.[1]

In the aftermath of the Refusal War, the same unit organization remained in place, but due to heavy loses most units were terribly understrength. On the whole the touman had been reduced to just ten Galaxies, and on average each Trinary and Binary was short one Star compared to their official TO&E. Many Clusters and Galaxies also saw their compositions changed drastically since before the invasion of the Inner Sphere while still retaining the same designations, leading to confusion by outside observers about just which units were actually participating in a battle. It was expected though that all units would be back to their full strength by the time the invasion was renewed.[1]

The Jade Falcons were also notable in the way they organized individual Stars, with the following giving their name and type.[3]

Type Information
Com Command Star (Cluster & Galaxy command units).
Talon Assault Star (Heavy to Assault weight Battlemechs).
Beak Battle Star (Medium to Heavy weight Battlemechs).
Eye Striker Star (Light to Medium weight Battlemechs).
Eyrie Mixed Weight Star (Sometimes classified as Beak).
Strider Elemental Star.
Wing Aerospace Star.
Nova Nova (5 'Mech & 5 Elemental Points).
Mix Non-standard Star. (Combines different Point types)

Additionally, some Stars and Trinaries were further classified by their mission type.[3]

Type Information
Shield Defensive Unit.
Probe Reconnaissance Unit.
Sweep Patrol Unit.
Hold Pinning Unit.
Dark Wing Solahma Unit.[4]

Jade Falcon Unit Designation Code[edit]

The JFUDC was the code by which Jade Falcon Stars were classified and used as a way of communicating messages with each other. The code itself consisted of three parts: the first was a four-character alphanumeric combination signifying the Star's parent Galaxy, Cluster, and Trinary/Binary in that order. The second part was by their Star composition as listed the table above. The third was the number designation which helped distinguished Stars of the same composition from each other. The full code was only used when communicating with Stars in separate Galaxy, with portions being dropped off as needed, right down to Stars within the same Trinary/Binary (although in such cases it was common for Jade Falcon warriors to informally identify the Star by its Star Commander).[3]

Example: "G7RD Beak 2" translates to the second Beak Star of Trinary Delta, 7th Falcon Regulars, Gamma Galaxy. If a unit from Gamma Galaxy but in a different Cluster were to communicate with them, they would use only 7RD Beak 2. Same if they were in the same Cluster but in a different Trinary (D Beak 2). If both units were in the same Trinary they would simply use the last two parts of the code (Beak 2).
