Ninth Fang Cluster
Disbanded Yes
Affiliation Clan Steel Viper
Parent Command Omega Galaxy


The Ninth Fang had taken up position on the planet Waldorff by 3054.[1] It was badly damaged when the Seventh Talon Cluster of Clan Jade Falcon raided the planet in June 3057, and was still recovering in December 3060.[2]

The Ninth was not on the Steel Viper roster in 3067. Its final fate is not known, but it is likely that it was destroyed when the Vipers were ejected from the Inner Sphere. Alternatively it is possibly that it was destroyed during the fighting against Clan Snow Raven in 3065, when the Vipers took heavy losses. [3]
