The Clan Snow Raven Touman is the military arm of Clan Snow Raven.

Unit Structure[edit]

While front-line Clusters of the Snow Raven Touman follow the norms of Clan military organization, adversity and a lack of resources have forced the Snow Ravens to adapt combined-arms warfare at the Trinary level for second-line units. Known as a Triad, each of these special Trinaries contains a Star of BattleMechs (or combat vehicles in some garrison units), a Star of infantry (either conventional or Elementals depending on mission), and a star of AeroSpace Fighters. Though this mix has some difficulty capturing territory, it is more capable of independent operations thanks to its increased flexibility. Triads are ideal for garrisoning large areas of territory, but are still adequate for offensive operations.[1]

The Snow Ravens also make use to two other unique formations. The first is known as an R-team, a Star-sized unit consisting of two 'Mechs, two Elemental Points and a team of combat-trained technicians tasked with recovering battlefield salvage, or isorla, while under enemy fire. Generally the technicians will call in special recovery vehicles to transport the material once it has been secured, although the R-team's 'Mechs are equipped with hands and nets to manhandle the equipment back to friendly lines if necessary. The second is an all-aerospace Wing Cluster, fielding upwards of one hundred fighters, which is tasked with air superiority or ground-support missions.[1]

Touman Structure[edit]

The current galaxies are based on the touman in 3079.[2]

Beta Galaxy (Storm Crow Galaxy)[edit]

Beta Galaxy lost much of its strength in Harvest Trials against Clan Jade Falcon.[7] It spent the 3060s rebuilding to become the main frontline Galaxy in the Homeworlds.[8] During the Jihad it was tasked with the second retribution campaign in 3069 against the Draconis Combine.[9]

After the Jihad ended, Clan Snow Raven's fleet was reduced to approximately twenty WarShips. These WarShips were observed in the Outworlds Alliance. In addition, observers reported approximately half of the Clan's ground and aerospace forces were also in the Alliance. Together, this represented roughly half of the Raven's touman.[20]

Uniforms and Rank Insignia[edit]

Field Uniform

When outside of their machines, Snow Raven warriors wear a power-blue jacket with black stirrup pants. Navy Blue piping runs down the jacket and stirrup pants. A helmet completes the uniform. Rank insignia is worn on the collars. Clan and Bloodname Houses are on the left, while unit and galaxy patches appear on the right shoulder.[23]

Dress Uniform

A snug-fitting, snow white woolen jacket and trousers is the Snow Raven's dress uniform. Black chevrons cover the upper torso and back, crossing the flared shoulders and merging with the black full length cape. Black boots and belt complete the uniform.[23]

Ceremonial Uniform

The ceremonial uniform is an all-white version of the dress uniform, complete with white leather boots, belt, and gauntlets. A white helmet covers; a dark transparent visor, resembling a beak shields the warrior's eyes and upper face. Attached to the rear and sides of the helmet is a swath of fabric that blurs the line between the heads and shoulders giving an avian appearance. Bloodnamed warriors wear a cape of snow raven feathers.[23]

Notes[edit]

Field Manual: Updates curiously does not include the Muninn, a Vincent Mk. 42-class corvette, as being in the touman in 3067[25]. However, it is listed as being part of the Ice Storm Star in 3079[9], and was a part of the touman in 3061 [17].

Additionally, the spelling "Muninn" is being used for the Munnin/Muninn. This is because Muninn is the name of one of the mythological ravens associated with the Norse god Odin, and therefore has been assumed to be the correct spelling of the WarShip's name in this article.

Field Manual: Warden Clans and Field Manual: Updates mention that the touman includes a WarShip called the Cold Hunter in 3061[15] and 3067[26]. This has been officially declared to be an error, and as such has been removed from this page. More information can be found on the Clan Ice Hellion's Cold Hunter page.
