78th Garrison Cluster (Clan Jade Falcon)
|Seventy-Eight Garrison Cluster (Clan Jade Falcon)|
|Affiliation||Clan Jade Falcon|
The unit was deployed on Wotan when in September 3071 Zeta Galaxy from Clan Ice Hellion attacked the planet. Wotan was being defended by the Eighth Falcon Regulars and the Seventy-eighth Garrison Cluster, and were other Ice Hellion forces had failed to defeat them due to the Falcons' unorthodox tactics. The Ice Hellions needed a quick win due to a severe shortfall of supplies after the capture of a major Ice Hellion supply convoy in the Deep Periphery. The Ice Hellion Watch had identified that the forces of the Seventy-eighth Garrison Cluster were operating through the city of Borealtown, although the Watch believed that the Seventy-eighth was actually based somewhere outside the city, and using the city as a cover to mask their movements. When the Watch provided Galaxy Commander Philippe Lienet with this information, Lienet responded by having Borealtown razed by aerospace fighters. Lienet's actions on Wotan were one of the key factors in the Jade Falcons declaring the Ice Hellions to be dezgra and leading a ferocious counterassault that ultimately destroyed most of the Ice Hellion touman in the Inner Sphere.
