The Daggers of Death were a mercenary unit in the late Succession Wars era, in the employ of House Kurita as of 3027. Recruited from Draconis Combine worlds, this mercenary unit was not regarded as outsiders within the Combine.[1]

HistoryEdit

In 3027, the Daggers of Death staged an ill-fated attack against Galtor III that was repulsed with heavy losses. Shortly afterwards, they were called upon to defend their garrison world (Scheat V according to sources) against a House Davion attack that was apparently part of the Operation Galahad 3027 wargames. They held the line against a superior foe, but suffered further losses in that action.[1]

CanonicityEdit

The Daggers of Death feature only in one story in the BattleTechnology magazine. BattleTechnology used to be fully canon, but is not currently counted among the (fully) canonical sources anymore. The magazine, and by extension its content such as this unit, must therefore be considered apocryphal.
