|7th Attack Cluster|
|Unit Profile (as of 3072)|
|Parent Formation||Alpha Galaxy|
|Formed||Before Operation Klondike|
During the Trials that preceded Operation REVIVAL the Seventh represented Clan Ice Hellion. They faced Clan Goliath Scorpion and Clan Fire Mandrill, losing both times. Later, in June 3050, the Seventh Attack Cluster joined with 150th Hellion Lancers to attack Londerholm as part of the Hellion's Fury campaign. They faced Clan Coyote's Sixty-seventh Assault Cluster and Clan Smoke Jaguar's 212th Jaguar Reserve Cluster. The Hellions were initially successful, but the other two Clans joined forces and inflicted heavy losses on the Hellions.
In 3070 the Cluster moved to Nouveaux Paris with the rest of Alpha Galaxy, arriving in September. Mid 3071 saw Alpha together with Delta Galaxy and the newly arrived Zeta Prime Galaxy form the primary attack force under Khan Montrose. This force moved against Clan Jade Falcon industrial worlds of the Falcon Occupation Zone, fighting in multiple systems.
The exact fate of the Cluster is not recorded, but in 3072 Alpha Galaxy retreated to Vantaa, here along with the remnant of Zeta Prime Galaxy they were assaulted by Clan Jade Falcon's Alpha and Delta Galaxies as well as Clan Hell's Horses's Iota Galaxy. The two understrength Hellion Galaxies took up a defensive position in an industrial complex, as the Hell's Horses advanced the Hellions called in an orbital bombardment from the Cage's Pride. This tore apart the Horse front line but also shattered much of the industrial complex resulting in a toxic spillage of chemicals in the air. Alpha was left in a state of confusion when Khan Montrose was killed during a Falcon flank attack. The Galaxy, including the Seventh, was effective destroyed by combat and toxic fumes.
