Clan Snow Raven Touman

The Clan Snow Raven Touman is the military arm of Clan Snow Raven.

Unit Structure[edit]

While front-line Clusters of the Snow Raven Touman follow the norms of Clan military organization, adversity and a lack of resources have forced the Snow Ravens to adapt combined-arms warfare at the Trinary level for second-line units. Known as a Triad, each of these special Trinaries contains a Star of BattleMechs (or combat vehicles in some garrison units), a Star of infantry (either conventional or Elementals depending on mission), and a star of AeroSpace Fighters. Though this mix has some difficulty capturing territory, it is more capable of independent operations thanks to its increased flexibility. Triads are ideal for garrisoning large areas of territory, but are still adequate for offensive operations.[1]

The Snow Ravens also make use to two other unique formations. The first is known as an R-team, a Star-sized unit consisting of two 'Mechs, two Elemental Points and a team of combat-trained technicians tasked with recovering battlefield salvage, or isorla, while under enemy fire. Generally the technicians will call in special recovery vehicles to transport the material once it has been secured, although the R-team's 'Mechs are equipped with hands and nets to manhandle the equipment back to friendly lines if necessary. The second is an all-aerospace Wing Cluster, fielding upwards of one hundred fighters, which is tasked with air superiority or ground-support missions.[1]

Beta Galaxy lost much of its strength in Harvest Trials against Clan Jade Falcon.[7] It spent the 3060s rebuilding to become the main frontline Galaxy in the Homeworlds.[8] During the Jihad it was tasked with the second retribution campaign in 3069 against the Draconis Combine.[9]

Delta Garrison Galaxy[edit]

Delta Garrison Galaxy used to be the main defense force of Lum.[12] After the heavy losses taken before and during the Wars of Reaving, the survivors of Kappa Galaxy was merged into Delta. Nowadays the Galaxy continues to guard the main holdings of the Clan.[13]

After the Jihad ended, Clan Snow Raven's fleet was reduced to approximately twenty WarShips. These WarShips were observed in the Outworlds Alliance. In addition, observers reported approximately half of the Clan's ground and aerospace forces were also in the Alliance. Together, this represented roughly half of the Raven's touman.[18]
