Gamma Galaxy was called up to the Inner Sphere in 3052 to reinforce Nova Cat forces for the battle of Tukayyid. Gamma was assigned the target city of Joje. The Galaxy supported by elements of Alpha Galaxy pushed past the defending 244th ComStar Division and thrust towards the northern suburbs. Here they were halted by the combined efforts of the Ninth and 417th ComStar Divisions as well as carefully laid vibrabomb fields. By the third day of the battle the Galaxy was very short of ammunition, but had forced both ComStar Divisions to retreat further inside Joje to regroup. Unfortunately their position was threaten by the 467th ComStar Division that was attempting to cut the Galaxy off from its landing zone.
saKhan Lucien Carns ordered the Galaxy to retreat. The 244th and 467th ComStar Division sensing an easy victory gave pursuit, but were caught in an ambush by the Nova Cat Beta Galaxy. Both Divisions were shattered and the Nova Cats captured their supplies. Before they could put these to good use the Ninth, 116th and 417th ComStar Divisions counter attacked. They recaptured the supply depots and pushed the Clan forces back. See the situation was desperate Khan Severen Leroux ordered a retreat to the DropShips, the fighting retreat completely destroyed Gamma Galaxy.
During the Draconis Combine Civil War, Gamma Galaxy faced the 1st Amphigean Light Assault Group and 2nd Amphigean Light Assault Group on Avon in 3142. The two DCMS units eventually destroyed Gamma, but not before they inflicted heavy losses on the Combine units.
