Narrative
Cobras
January 2002,
1st Company Command
Alpha Lance (1st)
ACTIVE
The lance that started it all. Redesignated as the Battalion Command Lance in March 2003. With patience, determination and a large dose of "On the Job Training" this lance learned what it takes to lead the finest mechwarriors in the Inner Sphere. Also, this lance has the most experienced combat veterans to ever wear the Midnight Cobra uniform.
Commanding Officer: Col. Serpent 6
Executive Officer: Capt. FourthHorsemen
1st Sergeant: SSgt. Death Adder
Staff Officer: N/A
Jesters
March 2003,
1st Company
Bravo Lance (2nd)
ACTIVE
Assignment remains the same to this very day. Originally called Joker Lance due to its membership of practical jokers. They soon demonstrated they had what it took to be a hard-core Assault unit. After developing a fearsome and deadly reputation from numerous engagements, their name was changed to Jester in April 03'. Additionally this is the most decorated and oldest of the combat lances in the Midnight Cobras.
Lance Leader: SSgt. One Man Gang
Lance Sergeant: Sgt. First Prime
1st Lancemate: N/A
Lancemate: Cpl. JayMan
Warlords
March 2003
1st Company Command
Alpha Lance (1st)
ACTIVE
Leading 1st Company Attackers is Warlords Lance. First deployed as a combination Assault-Medium unit after taking up the command post when Cobras' Lance moved to Battalion during the Midnight Cobras expansion in March 03'. Comprised of old timer vets, this lance is anything but geriatric. Never questioned nor intimidated, proving without a doubt there is no substitute for experience.
Company Commander: 1st Lt. SmeggSniffer
Company XO: N/A
1st Sergeant: N/A
Company Staff Officer: SFC. Futomaki
Undertakers
April 2003,
2nd Company
Bravo Lance (2nd)
ACTIVE
Currently active with the same duty station. This lance was formed to round out the battalion with a second Heavy-Assault mixed unit. Members from this lance are considered the best of the best when it comes to being "tip of the sword" for large scale engagements leaving plentiful work for burial details. Hence the name, Undertakers. 
Lance Leader: 2nd Lt. John Cooke
Lance Sergeant: Sgt. 6-String
1st Lancemate: Cpl. Wigg-Splitter
Lancemate: PFC. Jalec
Stilettos
June 2003,
1st Company
Charlie Lance (3rd)
Decommissioned: June 2004
Formed as a Fast Attack-Interceptor Medium Lance. The concept seemed worthy in the beginning unfortunately timing was off. Battlefield results where far less than perfect due to deficiencies in its leadership causing numerous defeats. Some warriors eventually transferred out to different units (lances). Few went AWOL and others where never to be seen or heard from again. The Lance ceased to be an effective fighting unit and was decommissioned in June 2004.
Lance Leader: SSgt. Loth
Lance Sergeant: N/A
1st Lancemate: Cpl. Demon
Lancemate: PFC. Tripps
Soul Reapers
June 2003,
3rd Company
Bravo Lance (2nd)
ACTIVE
Originating from 3rd Company where it was stationed as Training Command and in mid June of 2004 it was re designated to a front line unit. As a replacement for the ill fated Stilettos, Soul Reapers became 1st Companies Charlie Lance. The original function of this team was as a Heavy-Medium Mech Specialist Lance. This team coined the phrase "Anywhere, anytime and anyone". The unit still carries it's original 3rd Company tag for tradition.
Lance Leader: SSgt. Explorer
Lance Sergeant: N/A
1st Lancemate: PFC. Sinister
Lancemate: N/A
SledgeHammers
June 2003,
2nd Company
Charlie Lance (3rd)
Disbanded: September 2003
Since conception as a Heavy-Assault Support Lance this unit was in trouble due to differences between it's own commander and the battalion staff. Because of this, the unit never saw actual combat. A revue board later found it plagued with leadership issues as well having mishandled "sensitive" documents including theft of battlemech parts. Ultimately, when the unit received combat-ready status in September, finally bringing deployment orders, the units own commander defected to the opposing side. In October of 2003 the unit was disbanded and all remaining assets distributed.
Lance Leader: SSgt. One Man Gang
Lance Sergeant: Sgt. Revenge
1st Lancemate: PFC. Ranor
Lancemate: PFC. Viking
Wraiths
September 2003,
2nd Company
Charlie Lance (3rd)
Decommissioned: July 2004

Formed hastily as an Assault-Heavy Support Lance filling the need for combat ready units during the Cobras' participation in several campaigns. Not before long, the short lived Wraiths struggled to perform. Defeats and mech losses taking toll and for the longest time no one could find the cause. Soon after an in-depth investigation by Cobra Command, found leadership as the culprit. Including a surprising fact many of the battlemechs and supply parts where from the corrupted Sledgehammer Lance. The lance was eventually pulled out of service in July 2004 officially due to mechanical sabotage.
Lance Leader: SFC. Scythe
Lance Sergeant: Sgt. Revenge
1st Lancemate: N/A
Lancemate: Cpl. Numinak
Dirty Buzzards
August 2005,
2nd Company
Charlie Lance (3rd)
ACTIVE
With the advancements in battlemech weaponry creating a more deadlier battlefield spawning the eventual need for this type of unit. This team is the first "Omni" (or universal) to be commissioned in the Midnight Cobras if not the Inner Sphere. This unit is based on the concept of quick strike to long range patrol and hold roles. Named for their unorthodox approach to mech combat and comprised of veteran warriors, when an enemy has just "fallen" you are sure to bet the Dirty Buzzards are present. All other information is CLASSIFIED.
Lance Leader: MSgt. SkullCrusher
Lance Sergeant: Sgt. Barracuda
1st Lancemate: PFC. Stormbringer
Lancemate: N/A
