While working for the Outworlds Alliance, their standard assignment was pirate hunting and in this way repulsed an assault of a Tortuga Dominion force that assaulted Jordan Wais. The Brigade forced the pirates to withdraw. When the contract was not extended the unit worked for several employees on Port Krin. The Brigade's ranks swelled through smaller commands that were integrated into the main force. Sometimes called 'Surrender Monkeys' because they began with retreat after minimal casualties.[1]

The unit faced its destiny in November of 3067, when two Trinaries from the Snow Raven (6th Raven Battle Cluster) made short work with them.[citation needed]


Starting as the Captain of a DropShip, Chuong Spade raised his own command after a tour with the CCAF and held command of the Brigade in 3067.[1]


The unit used innovative maneuvers but failed when it use them not successfully.[1]


The Brigade had no DropShip support and few technicians for maintenance.[1]
