|Unit Profile (as of 3069)|
|Parent Formation||Clan Jade Falcon Touman|
Turkina's Talons was formed in 3051 by Khan Elias Crichell and served as the Jade Falcon Homeworld Defense Force. The command may have been an administrative convenience more than a combat formation, although this is not certain. It consisted of two Galaxies of ground troops supported by the Emerald Talon Naval Assault Star. The Talons were responsible for fending off attacks by Clan Steel Viper and Clan Snow Raven.
Sigma Galaxy was destroyed in the Steel Viper assault of November 3069. The Emerald Talon Naval Assault Star was heavily damaged in the naval battle at Ironhold in 3069, but was effectively destroyed in the Battle of Lum in February 3070.
As a combined formation of two Galaxies, there was no particular commanding officer. Command probably went to the senior Galaxy Commander based on time in position.
Possibly not applicable as this appeared to be largely an administrative command.
