Zeta Galaxy (Clan Diamond Shark)
|Unit Profile (as of 3071)|
|Parent Formation||Clan Diamond Shark Touman|
In 3070 after Clan Diamond Shark had been exposed for trading with the Inner Sphere the Vipers, Adders and the Cobras launched attacks against them. Zeta Galaxy found itself engaged on Paxon and Strato Domingo, which quickly turned to a war of attrition. The Galaxy found itself in almost constant fighting as it defended itself and attempted to add weight to merchant deals. In mid-3070 both the Twenty-seventh Combined Strike Cluster and Forty-fourth Cruiser Cluster were lost to Clan Coyote in Trials of Possession.
In December 3071 fighting between Clan Blood Spirit and Clan Coyote on Paxon spilled over into the Diamond Shark city of Thermopolis. During the fight over 600 shark civilians lost their lives. The Eighty-third Combined Strike Cluster moved against the Blood Spirits to enact revenge, however during this assault the Coyotes slipped past them and captured their undefended firebase. During a fierce three-way battle over two days the Eighty-third was destroyed.
"Dig in and hold" was the battle philosophy of the Zeta.
