Allen Dumont was the commanding officer of the Viper Fusiliers from 3058 to 3069.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

In 3060, his was leading the Fusiliers when they were stationed on Goat Path. When it was raided by Warrior House Ijori of the Capellan Confederation. The battle caused serious damage to both forces, but was inconclusive.[1] After two weeks of fighting, the Ijoris lifted off-world. Both the Fusiliers and the Ijoris sustained serious losses.[4]

After being removed from the Inner Sphere the Viper Fusiliers and the rest of Beta Galaxy served as the main force that ejected Clan Snow Raven from Homer.[5] After that triumph, they were stationed on Marshall and were still there as of 3067.[2]

In 3069 the Falcon's Second Velites issued a batchall for the Viper Holdings on Marshall, bidding their entire force. Galaxy Commander Zalman bid the Viper Fusiliers in response. The Fusiliers were outnumbered and the battle was fierce. Star Colonel Allen Dumont killed Star Colonel Dien of the Falcons. After this the Falcons broke their bid and called in artillery strikes that decimated the Fusiliers, leaving only a mixed Trinary of 'Mechs and Elementals to claim hegira and retreat from the planet.[3]

Notes[edit]

The Fusiliers are not mentioned after this action and it appears likely that the cluster was disbanded after taking so many losses. He most probably died with his unit, but that is unconfirmed.
