History[edit]

During the Trials in 3048 to prepare for Operation REVIVAL, the Thirty-eighth Assault Cluster defeated Clan Fire Mandrill but later lost to Clan Smoke Jaguar and Clan Steel Viper.[1]

During Khan Koga's reforms of the Coyote touman, positions in the Thirty-eighth Assault Cluster were opened up to warriors who had recently graduated from their sibkos. This new blood allowed the Thirty-eighth to rebuild quickly.[2] Between 3060 and 3067 the Thirty-eighth was stationed on Babylon.[3][4]

In the mid 3060s the Thirty-eighth Assault Cluster was the first to receive ProtoMechs in the Coyote Touman, with three Stars assigned as a fourth Star in a Trinary. In reality, the ProtoMech Stars operated as their own provisional Trinary almost as often as they acted as a support Star for their assigned Trinary.[6]

Rules[edit]

In 3048 the Cluster can only field OmniMechs and may not use any light ’Mechs. One Star per battle may use the Brawlers special ability.[5]
