|7th Hell's Brigade|
|Unit Profile (as of 3050)|
During the Clan Invasion in April 3050 Virentofta was attacked by forces of Clan Smoke Jaguar. At the time it was defended by the mercenary unit Seventh Hell's Brigade. The mercenaries were actually in the midst of evacuating the planet when two units of the 225th Jaguar Battle Cluster, Trinary Assault and Alpha Elemental Star, landed right on top of them. For several hours a desperate and uneven fight played out in the open fields surrounding Port Shianty until a pair of Elemental Points seized control of the Brigade's DropShips. A final ill-fated attempt was made by the Brigade to recapture their only hope of escape, resulting in most of the unit destroyed.

No specific tactics are known for this unit.
- No logo was ever designed for the unit
- The unit was only described in Invading Clans Sourcebook
- It is not explained why a Mercenary unit was defending a kuritan planet with the "Death to Mercenaries" order by Takashi Kurita. It could be that they have been contracted by the operating enterprise, but this is not confirmed. Operating so near of the Periphery, they could have been contract for a anti-piracy raid. 
No specific rules do apply for this unit.
