Planetary HistoryEdit

Clan InvasionEdit

Garstedt was conquered by Clan Smoke Jaguar in May 3050 during the Second Wave of Operation Revival. Tai-sa Albert Brookhaven, commander of the 3rd Alshain Regulars, planned to dig in his forces in the Cordivas Grotto, forcing the Smoke Jaguars to suffer heavy losses as they tried to flush them out. When the Smoke Jaguars landed their forces, the 7th Jaguar Dragoons' Trinary Assault, Trinary Command and Binary Elemental, they instead chose to wait the defenders out. Tai-sa Brookhaven realized his only option was to retreat and decided on his best approach back to the Third Regulars' DropShips, located at the south end of the Filmore Steppes. When the Alshain Regulars made their move it started a running battle all the way to the DropShips' location, where a Star of OmniMechs destroyed Brookhaven's command company and lighter elements of Trinary Command held up the regiment until Trinary Assault's arrival. Of the regiment's three battalions two managed to retreat off-world, with the third utterly destroyed by the Smoke Jaguars.[30]

Operation BulldogEdit

Garstedt was invaded in the third wave of Operation Bulldog by the Sixth Lyran Guards, Ryuken-go, First MAC, and the Com Guard 79th Division. The defending Seventeenth Jaguar Regulars and 143rd Battle Cluster took only moderate losses before fleeing off-planet.[31]
