The First Fang was a second-line Cluster of Clan Steel Viper which was operational during the mid-31st century.

History[edit]

During the Battle of Tukayyid in 3052 infantry from the First Fang rescued saKhan Perigard Zalman after his 'Mech was crippled by ComGuard artillery.[2]

Between 3054 and 3060 the Cluster was stationed on Parakoila.[3] [4]

Following Clan Steel Viper's eviction from the Inner Sphere the Cluster had moved to Grant's Station as of 3067.[5]

The final fate of the First Fang is not specified, but Zeta Galaxy was destroyed along with the rest of Clan Steel Viper in 3075 at the end of the Wars of Reaving.[1]

Commanding Officers of the 1st Fang

Tactics[edit]

The aging but proud warriors of the First Fang refused to retreat and would fight to the bitter end, in 'Mechs or on foot.[6]

During battles radio traffic was reduced to a minimum and this made their opponents feel insecure. Electronic Warfare was also rendered useless.[7]
