Operated by the Sixty-seventh BattleMech Cluster, fast recon cavalry points are infantry officially intended to travel across the battlefield in small hovercraft, keeping up with the Cluster's scout elements. Given the enclosed environments that the Sixty-seventh preferred to opeate in the fast recon infantry acted as capable scouts, but were constrained in the firepower they could deploy because of the carrying capacity of their hovercraft and were correspondibly vulnerable in direct fights. It was not uncommon for the fast recon infantry to be used by the Hell's Horses as distractions to allow scout tanks that had been damaged to retreat safely from the battlefield.[1]
