History[edit]

The First Wolf Strike Grenadiers were formed after the Refusal War in 3058 from survivors of several shattered clusters.[1][2] The unit took part in Operation Bulldog in 3059. It was among the Wolf-in-Exile forces attacking Labrea in Wave 2, but didn't see battle-action.[3] In Wave 4 the Cluster landed on Albiero where the Eleventh Jaguar Regulars fought to the death.[4] The Cluster took up a garrison post on Koniz in 3061.[5]

During the Jade Falcon incursion of 3064, the unit fought against the 3rd Talon on Roadside. Khan Phelan Kell had sent them and the Blue Star Irregulars to support the Lyran forces already operating in the Clan Jade Falcon-occupation zone. They were present on Melissia preventing the Jade Falcons from taking the Theater capital. After that action they then moved on to Blair Atholl, which saw the final battle of the incursion.[6] By 3067 the Cluster was garrisoned on Graus and had rebuilt to almost full strength.[7]

In 3079 the Cluster was stationed on Yeguas and was at roughly two thirds full combat strength.[8] By 3085 the Strike Grenadiers had taken up position on A Place, but were still understrength.[9]

During Clan Wolf-in-Exile's attacks upon the Jade Falcons in 3148 the Strike Grenadiers hit the Fifty-third Falcon Talon on Upano while that unit was being refitted. The Fifty-third was driven from Upano with the Strike Grenadiers destroying or capturing those Falcons unable to escape.[10]
