10th Scorpion Dragoons (Clan Goliath Scorpion)

Tenth Scorpion Dragoons
Unit Profile (as of 3067)
Nickname Poisoned Gambit
Parent Formation Rho Galaxy


Though assigned to garrison Roche in 3061 and protect that world, the Tenth Scorpion Dragoons were often shipped offworld to fight bandits. During many of these actions members of the Tenth found odd historical items. This despite their unit's large number of Elementals and assault 'Mechs. They also participate in war games with Delta Galaxy to maintain their edge.[1]

In 3067 they were still garrisoning Roche.[2]

Some time before 3073 the Dragoons were transferred to Beta Galaxy. [3]

SaKhan Myers moved Beta Galaxy to Glory in September 3073, here they found their allies Kindraa Mattilla-Carrol under heavy attack from Steel Viper forces. A naval battle erupted as Beta attempted to land on the planet that destroyed three of the escorting warships. Beta landed new the city of Portage. Fighters from the Third Scorpion Cuirassiers bombed the Viper positions allowing the Tenth Scorpion Dragoons to sweep in behind the Viper's Ninety-third Assault Cluster and crush them against the Mandrill forces.[3] A dispute broke out between the allied Clan forces, but as they were settling their differences in a Trial of Refusal the Vipers counter-attacked. The Tenth Scorpion Dragoons were caught off guard but managed to rally in defence of the wounded saKhan. Orbital bombardment from the Atropos allowed the Galaxy to pull off planet.[4]


As of 3061 to 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Drago.[1]


Often assigned to Bandit hunting near the Kerensky Cluster.[1]
