History[edit]

Rho Spina Galaxy was known for making extensive use of Elementals and Supernovas. Traditionally it had faced Clan Ice Hellion and Clan Hell's Horses; so it was also deployed combat vehicles, only one of the two Galaxies in the Diamond Shark Touman to be so equipped. The unit commanders believed in preparing for any type of conflict, and so trained Rho in a variety of situations rather than specializing in any one type of combat. This broad base of tactical knowledge had saved the Galaxy several times over the course of its history.[1]

The Clusters of the Galaxy had become exceptionally mobile by 3067, assigned to Diamond Shark WarShips for extended periods of time before making planetfall for live-fire exercises.[2]

The loss of the CDS Bold Venture at Salonika in early July 3072 by Clan Burrock forces, also seems to have seen the destruction of the 33rd Combined Strike Cluster.[3]
