Unit Description[edit]

The 17th Battle Cluster is a front-line Clan Jade Falcon combat unit, which uses typically made up principally of BattleMechs, with some battle armor and Aerospace Fighter units supporting it.


The unit assaulted Pandora in 3052 along the First Falcon Jaegers. They faced a combined force of the Gray Death Legion, 10th FedCom RCT, and the Needgate Militia. The Jaegers' Elementals inflicted heavy losses on the Needgate Militia unit, and the Tenth FedCom RCT was also heavily damaged.[1]

In a battle at the city of Vandmaal, the Legion destroyed approximately half of the Jaegers' OmniMechs, and many of their Elementals were destroyed by new Gray Death Legion power armor. Despite this, the Jaegers had more troops and the outcome seemed to be a forgone conclusion. The defense of the city of Needgate quickly fell apart, and the Jaegers pressed the attack. At that moment, the Gray Death Legion arrived and hit the Jaegers in the rear and flank. This forced the Falcons to withdraw from Pandora with heavy losses.[2]
