HistoryEdit

After the Burrock Absorption, Upsilon Galaxy moved against the Snow Raven enclave on York. Galaxy Commander Hunter Lewis defeated Star Colonel Kelse Howe of the Second Raven Garrison Cluster in single combat, prompting the Snow Ravens to abandon their enclave.[1][2] The Galaxy then took up their garrison post on York. [3]

Upsilon assisted Omicron Galaxy in recapturing the Blood Spirit's enclave on Arcadia in 3066. During this action the 221st took enough losses that it had to be disbanded. [4]

The Galaxy moved to form part of the York garrison after the Adder's had manage to gain a foothold supporting the effort to drive them from the planet. They remained here until the Adder assault of 3072 when orbital bombardment wiped the Galaxy out, with only the 181st Crimson Guards surviving with heavy losses.[5]

NotesEdit

Upsilon Galaxy uses a gray and blood red scheme. The upper arms, upper legs, and side torsos of 'Mechs are painted gray, as are the sides of vehicles, protomechs, and battle armor. The remainder of each unit is painted a randomly-swirled pattern using different shades of red, yellow, and orange.[2]
