Unit Description[edit]

The 200th Attack Cluster was a frontline military formation belonging to Clan Ice Hellion. The unit was noted for being commanded by saKhans of the Clan.[1]

History[edit]

The Cluster also acts as the command unit for Beta Galaxy. The Cluster took serious casualties in a Trial of Possession action against the Fourth Wolf Striker Cluster in 3059.[2]

In 3059 the Cluster was stationed on Atreus, [3] but by 3067 the 200th had moved to Hoard.[2]

In 3070 the Cluster moved to Nouveaux Paris with the rest of Beta Galaxy, arriving in September.[4] Mid 3071 saw Beta together with Zeta Galaxy form the secondary attack force under saKhan Connor Rood. This force moved against Clan Jade Falcon border worlds of the Falcon Occupation Zone, fighting in multiple systems.[5]

The Cluster was effectively destroyed on Lackhove in November 3071.[6] A few survivors followed The retreat of Beta Galaxy and SaKhan Rood. On the long trip back to the homeworlds the saKhan reformed the 200th Attack Cluster from survivors of Alpha, Beta and Zeta Prime Galaxies. By the end of 3072 the Cluster was six trinaries strong.[7]

The warriors of the Cluster were absorbed into Clan Goliath Scorpion in 3074, this was the end of the unit.[8]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was saKhan Sellen Cage.[2]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was saKhan Connor Rood.[1]

Tactics[edit]

Expert at setting ambushes.[2]

Notes[edit]

While never explicitly stated it is likely that the Cluster can trace its heritage and number back to the the Star League's 200th Dragoon Regiment that had been commanded by the Clan's first Khan.

Give the Ice Hellion remnant under Connor Rood joined with the occupants of the CSJ Osis' Pride, it is unknown how many of the six Trinaries mentioned in 3073 were made up of former Smoke Jaguar warriors.
