Nickname The Hunting Vipers
Affiliation Clan Steel Viper
Parent Command Beta Galaxy


The 233rd Battle Cluster appears to have been part of the invasion force but was not employed in combat in the Inner Sphere. It was not posted in the Occupation Zone after the Battle of Tukayyid.[1] It was likely stationed in the Deep Periphery as it was assigned to patrolling the Exodus Road as of 3059, when it was stationed in Wark.[2][3] However, by 3067 the cluster had moved to Marshall.[4]

The final fate of the 233rd Battle Cluster is not known, but they would not have survived the destruction of Beta Galaxy or that of Clan Steel Viper in 3075.[5]
