The Jihad[edit]

As a part of Gamma Galaxy the Twenty-eighth Cruiser Cluster was on Twycross when Blakist sympathizers launched the Bloody Tricentennial attacks that struck across the Inner Sphere. On Twycross, the Trellshire Heavy Industries plant was destroyed in a nuclear explosion intended to both destroy the factory and the garrisoning Clan Diamond Shark forces from Gamma Galaxy who had been lured to the plant by a series of earlier explosions.[1]

While the other elements of Gamma Galaxy that survived the Jihad redeployed to Itabaiana, the Twenty-eighth remained in the Twycross system, stationed aboard the Carrack-class transport Devourer, which had been left crippled in the Twycross system by an accident.[1]
