History[edit]

The Third Battle Cluster was heavily involved in the Trial of Refusal against Operation Revival. The Trial caused casualties so severe that SaKhan Garth Radick barred the unit from participation in the initial Invasion of the Inner Sphere.[1] However the Third Battle's Supernova Command, Trinary Striker and Binary Fighter units were available for the conquest of Lovinac in May 3050.[2] They were also brought in as reinforcements to finish up the conquest of Planting later the same year in July.[3] When the Fifth Wave of the invasion started, the Third Battle conquered the planet Rastaban in January 3052, destroying the 2nd Knights of St. Cameron.[4]

In 3054 the unit was assigned to garrison Diosd in the Clan Wolf Occupation Zone.[5]

During the Refusal War the Third were part of Khan Natasha Kerensky's forces. In October 3057 they attacked the planet of Devin. In one action Trinary Bravo defeated the Second Falcon Jaeger's Charlie Trinary on the O'Tsung Plain, however overall the Wolves were defeated and force to move on taking 47% casualties.[6] In December the Third and the rest of Beta Galaxy attacked Twycross. The Third formed one flank of the Wolf battle line. Their initial barrage decimated the Sixth Provisional Garrison Cluster of the Jade Falcons. They fought hard and well but were forced to retreat on the order of Natash Kerensky. Under Marco Hall the Third moved against the planet of Wotan.[7][8] It did not survive the fighting of the Refusal War.

Officers[edit]
