Fifty-Seventh Combined Assault Cluster
Formed 3052
Nickname Devil's Churn
Affiliation Clan Diamond Shark
Parent Command Omega Galaxy


The Fifty-seventh Combined Assault Cluster was formed around a core of the survivors of Tukayyid. Added to these were a high proportion of freeborn warriors and trueborns of lesser Bloodhouses.[1] In 3061 the Cluster was stationed on Babylon.[2]

Omega Galaxy was dispatched to garrison the new Inner Sphere trading worlds[3] and by 3067 the Fifty-seventh had taken up position on Itabaiana[4] and was still in place in 3079.[5]

In 3075 the Fifty-seventh responded to the massacre of Diamond Shark civilians on Nykvarn. It along with the Coral Skate sallied forth and engaged the Twelfth and Twenty-second Dieron Regulars almost destroying both units for their actions.[5]

Fifty-seventh responded too late to stop a civilian airliner from crashing into the Clan Diamond Shark IndustriPlex-C in October 3080, but did take part in the recovery operations that followed after.[6] With the loss of the complex on Itabaiana the Fifty-seventh was transferred to the CDS Space Hunter as a mobile force.[7]
