|Three Hundred and fifteenth Jaguar Battle Cluster|
|Affiliation||Clan Smoke Jaguar|
|Parent Command||(see notes)|
The 315th Battle Cluster was a front line combat unit of Clan Smoke Jaguar.
The 315th Battle Cluster successfully bid for and fought on the following worlds during the invasion of the Inner Sphere.
On the second day of the battle in January 3052, the 315th Battle Cluster was engaged in the Kado-Guchi Valley here it was targeted by the First Genyosha and the Kell Hounds, who inflicted enough damage on the Jaguar unit to force a hole in the Clan lines. The resulting breach and subsequent assault caused so much damage to Clan forces that Khan Osis considered retreat. However in pushing the 315th Battle Cluster back a hole had opened in the defenders own line that the Twenty-second Jaguar Regulars pushed into breaking through the Otomo and 2nd Legion of Vega. This counter thrust was short lived as the Twenty-second were surrounded by Alpha Regiment of Wolf's Dragoons. This blow was the last straw and the Jaguars were forced to perform a fighting retreat. The Valley had become a massive killing zone. When the battle was over, hundreds of burning 'Mechs streaked the sky with smoke. The Clan force was defeated and the few Clan warriors that survived the battle were taken prisoner.
The 315th Battle was destroyed on Luthien and not reconstituted.
|Commanding Officers of the 315th Battle|
- The 315th Battle was destroyed on Luthien and not reconstituted.
- The 315th had to have belonged to either Alpha, Beta or Delta Galaxies. They were recorded fighting alongside the Twenty-second Jaguar Regulars thought to have been attached to Beta Galaxy.
- There appears to be some confusion regarding the 315th Battle Cluster mentioned in Invading Clans and the 315th Jaguar Battle Galaxy from the Luthien (scenario pack)
- Leslie, the commander of the 315th Battle, is listed as a Galaxy Commander in the Luthien (scenario pack). However, Star Colonels usually command Clusters. This is tied to the confusion regarding references to the Cluster being a Galaxy.
