History[edit]

The Hawkshead Galaxy lost front-line status due to losses taken in pre-invasion Trials against Clan Coyote.[1] Regained front-line status in the 3060s.[3] Was assigned defensive duties and clashed with the 3rd Crucis Lancers during the Jihad.[4]

By 3110 Gamma Galaxy had become the heaviest user of ProtoMechs in the Snow Raven touman, and was the first unit to receive deliveries of the new Hippogriff ProtoMech. The Third Raven Auxiliaries were the first sub-unit of Gamma Galaxy to test the Hippogriff in combat when they clashed with a reconnaissance force from the ManMangler mercenary unit on Milligan's World. A contingent from the ManManglers - who were apparently in the employ of the Draconis Combine - was intercepted by a Binary from the Auxiliaries. The Auxiliaries force consisted of a mixture of Chrysaor 2s, Hippogriffs and Rocs, and intercepted the mercenaries on the Doone Plains, where the Raven ProtoMechs quickly outjumped the mercenary APCs and light 'Mechs, who retreated after losing two 'Mechs and most of their infantry.[5]

In 3144 Gamma Galaxy sent two Clusters to take Inner End. After moving all non-combatants to Inner End's cities, the Ravens were able to quickly crush the resistance movement started by the Federated Suns defenders. Gamma then left Inner End and landed on Hazelhurst and started to use similar policies to bring the world under Raven Alliance control.[6]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 to 3067 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Tristen Crow.[1][7]

In 3145 the commanding officer of Gamma Galaxy is Galaxy Commander Luis Siegel.[8]
