HistoryEdit

Clan InvasionEdit

SteeltonEdit

In April of 3050, Clan Jade Falcon dispatched the Eighth and the Twelfth Falcon Regulars Clusters to take Steelton. The world's defenses were lead by Colonel Francis "Crab" Carranza, commanding the planet's militia force and the First Regiment of the Twelfth Star Guards. Colonel Carranza bluffed the Jade Falcon forces by making it appear he had a brigade of forces defending the planet. The inflated number of troops forced the bidding Jade Falcon commander to call in reinforcements which ultimately led to the Colonel's demise. The Falcons targeted the planet's capital city of Cregan's Bluff as the main objective; in the course of the battle, the Twelfth Star Guards positions were overrun by Falcon forces, but the Twelfth managed to hold their positions long enough for elements of the Star Guards and the surviving militia forces (one regiment) to evacuate the planet, although Colonel Carranza was killed.[2]

WotanEdit

The unit died in Wotan with the rest of the defenders.
