The Fold Fiends accompanied their allied unit, * “The Dead Man’s Hand” on a fast-travel across the Taurian Concordat, reaching the Coromodir system in mid-February, 3031.

The contract proved difficult, as forces rallied on both sides for the first few months, until a major campaign erupted six (6) months in, and resulted in an effective stalemate, after which the local forces in support of the Santiago family surrendered.

While the unit lost its Enforcer (though the pilot survived) in the brawls with two light and heavy armor companies, and the local planetary militia, the Fold Fiends sacked the planet’s main support base, and captured two Ontos Heavy Tank to replace their own lost Demolishers. They also captured a large force of local technicians. In addition, the unit replaced many of its armor losses with captured materiel, making their armor far more of a flanking and supporting force than before. Infantry losses were light, but the 15th Platoon lost half its personnel, and much of the units other salvage went towards repairing its mechanized APCs to keep the unit mobile. The unit also lost both its Command Van and Ferret Light Scout VTOL in a terrorist attack; neither crew survived.
