17th Scorpion Cuirassiers (Clan Goliath Scorpion)
|17th Scorpion Cuirassiers|
|Unit Profile (as of 3072)|
|Nickname||The Golden Horde|
|Parent Formation||Delta Galaxy|
Like all Delta Galaxy units, the Seventeenth Scorpion Cuirassiers uses a mix of Elementals and Assault 'Mechs to defend its garrison. They favor designs that are fast and heavy, like the Cauldron-Born and Executioner. The Cluster is considered to be the lead unit of Delta Galaxy.
Wars of ReavingEdit
The Goliath Scorpions launched an attack on Brim in 3072, foregoing any attempt at issuing a batchall and instead simply dropping two of Delta Galaxy's Clusters directly onto one of the three remaining Snow Raven enclaves, which consisted of a city and a Sylph manufacturing factory. The warriors who landed were shocked to discover that the enclave wasn't in fact being protected by Snow Raven warriors, but rather a large Society force.
The Society force demanded a proper batchall, but their demands were ignored by Galaxy Commander Lincoln Dinour and the resulting intense firefight spilled over into a nearby large terraforming research zone. During the battle several of the sealed tanks within the terraforming research area were pierced by stray shots, resulting in a devastating explosion that wiped out half the defending Society forces and the majority of the Goliath Scorpion forces on the ground, including the Seventeenth Cuirassiers.
The unit used Blitzkrieg tactics.
