Operation REVIVAL[edit]

The Eighth Assault Cluster absorbed the survivors of Gamma Galaxy's Tukayyid campaign.[1]

The Jihad[edit]

As a part of Gamma Galaxy the Eighth was on Twycross when Blakist sympathizers launched the Bloody Tricentennial attacks that struck across the Inner Sphere. On Twycross, the Trellshire Heavy Industries plant was destroyed in a nuclear explosion intended to both destroy the factory and the garrisoning Clan Diamond Shark forces from Gamma Galaxy who had been lured to the plant by a series of earlier explosions.[2]
