49th Battle (Clan Coyote)
|Forty Ninth Battle Cluster|
|Parent Command||Epsilon Galaxy|
By August 3071 the cluster had taken up position on Marshall along with the 12th Battle Cluster. By December they had moved again to Paxon when the Scarlet Guards landed on planet to contest a former Clan Wolf BattleMech and ProtoMech factory. Unfortunately during the fighting the Guards stumbled into a previously unknown Clan Diamond Shark civilian encampment accidentally killing over 600 people. The incensed Shark defenders launched themselves in to a three way fight, from which only two stars of Guard ProtoMechs survived. The Forty-ninth destroyed the Shark force and turned their attention to the Blood Spirits. As the Guard retreated they were cut down by half by the surviving Coyote warriors. At the end of the battle the Forty-ninth were a spent force with only a Star and a half on 'Mechs and Elementals left.
