Clan Wolf Touman

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

Unit Structure[edit]

For most of it's history Clan Wolf adhered to the standard Clan military structure, with each Cluster composed of five Trinaries, Binaries and/or Supernovas. Generally one of these five units would be designated as a command unit from which the Star Colonel operated, although some Clusters had instead an additional command Nova or Star, while each Galaxy was commanded by it's own keshik. Generally Trinaries and Binaries were "pure" units consisting of all one Star type, with some notable exceptions such as certain Rogue formations or the use of Support Trinaries consisting of aerospace and artillery support.[1] Clan Wolf was also one of the few to pioneer the use of a mixed unit known as a strategic command Star. This unit combined four Points of either Elementals or 'Mechs with a single Point of fighters. The aerospace support provides valuable reconnaissance and escort services to the rest of the Star. The composition's success has seen a limited adoption of these command Stars by other Clans.[2][3]

One of the more systematic use of mixed Trinaries came from the capture of Star Colonel Vlad Dinour from Clan Goliath Scorpion in 3012. As commander of the Goliath Scorpion's elite Heartvenom Cluster, Vlad Dinour had been responsible for training Wolf's Dragoons into a fighting force the equal of any front-line formation and Clan Wolf wanted to bring in his expertise. He was quickly adopted after being taken as a bondsman and given command of the 4th Striker Cluster with which to experiment. Each Trinary was patterned after the Battle Trinary used by Clan Goliath Scorpion, consisting of a Star each of 'Mechs, Elementals and fighters. While this doctrine was not adopted by the other front-line Clusters, it became the model formation for the second-line units of Epsilon Galaxy.[4]

In the wake of the devastating Refusal War many warriors and machines were lost and the new Khan Vladimir Ward had to undertake some unprecedented actions, including the raising of an entire garrison Galaxy to front-line status and initiating the Harvest Trials. By the early 3060s Khan Ward's efforts had paid off and many units, while still under-strength, were in better fighting shape than before. By this time an average Wolf Cluster consisted of a command or Supernova Trinary, a 'Mech Trinary, an Elemental Trinary and either a Binary or Trinary of OmniFighters. The exact organization varied between units, with a common variation being the mixing of 'Mechs with Elementals in a single Trinary, while the Wolves still maintain use of their famous strategic command Stars. While standard 'Mechs still made up the majority of even front-line units' strength, by 3062 many front-line Clusters were expected to have their full compliment of OmniMechs thanks to increased production from the Homeworlds.[5]
