Synopsis : July 26th, 3028 : System – Northwind : The unit spends the better part of a month keeping trim and ordering various supplies for themselves and their landholds back in the Periphery. They make a contract for one of their infantry battalions Contract – Operation : “Bronco”, and ship them out aboard the “Spearhead”, taking commercial JumpShip passage.
By late-August, word reaches the unit of the declaration of war. The 4th Succession War begins. In mid-September forces from the Draconis Combine are detected in-system in force. The unit ships several months of supplies from the starport to their mountain base, and prepare for the coming storm. Late-September, forces from the The 5th Sword of Light and the 36th Dieron Regulars make landfall, and move against the local 5th Deneb Light Cavalry RCT. Local forces lose AeroSpace control, but the attackers won’t approach the starport, rather they encircle the capital of Tara, and begin to wear down the defenders.
The unit is sent to deal with a force trying to make their way into a flanking position around the city, and they intercept a heavy unit from the 5th Sword of Light. The battle is rapid and fierce, but not completed by the end of the session.
