Planetary HistoryEdit

Fourth Succession WarEdit

During the Fourth Succession War the Lyran Commonwealth used the Fifteenth Lyran Regulars to attack Memmingen as a part of the exploitation phase of Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG.[43]

Clan InvasionEdit

The Free Rasalhague Republic world of Memmingen saw both the Black Omen and Outlaws mercenary units arrive in 3050, badly battered at the hands of Clan Ghost Bear and Clan Wolf during the initial stages of Operation Revival, the Clan invasion of the Inner Sphere. The Black Omen had faced the Ghost Bears on Damian, while the Outlaws had fought Clan Wolf on The Edge and Rodigo. The two mercenary units ended up forming a temporary alliance as they rebuilt on Memmingen; the wisdom of this was proved when Clan Wolf forces jumped into the Memmingen system in November 3051.[44][45]

In the bidding to determine who would attack the planet Star Colonel Marcos Radick managed to beat out Khan Natasha Kerensky, albeit with a dangerously low bid: just Trinary Command, Alpha Assault Nova and Alpha Fighter Star of the 37th Striker Cluster would be taking on the 3rd Drakøns, the two combined mercenary units (equivalent in strength to four companies) and the 1st Memmingen Armored Division. Star Colonel Marcos Radick chose land his forces far from the Drakøns' position and conduct a highly mobile campaign. While his strategy was successful, defeating the enemy at Vegas Greens, Danton, Quass and Pissurn Drive, the enemy always managed to slip away before a decisive defeat could be inflicted on them.[45] It was also during this campaign that the mercenaries managed to overrun a Wolf supply cache; this cache brought them not just some much-needed supplies, but also four second-line Clan warriors, a Highlander IIC and a Warhammer IIC.[44]

Star Colonel Marcos Radick's patience abruptly ran out when the Drakøns managed to escape again after the battle of Danton. In a fury he ordered the village and it's neighbor Greenvalle razed to the ground, killing hundreds of civilians. Fearing for the safety of the rest of the populace the Drakøns and surviving remnants of the armored division escaped offworld to Satalice, but not before broadcasting a warning to the Star Colonel that they would make him pay for his actions.[45] The Outlaws' commanding officer, Major Donald Trent, was advised by the Drakøns about the situation and in response ordered his unit to retreat as well. While the unit managed to escape to Ueda, Major Trent was killed in action just after issuing the retreat order.[44]
