Planetary HistoryEdit

Star LeagueEdit

In 2764, the 47th Royal Mechanized Infantry Division of the Star League Defense Force destroyed a base for the armed group called the Great North on Outpost, New Bergen and St. John. However, the SLDF troops thought they were defeating a group of Periphery separatists. In actuality, the group was made of ethnic Rasalhagians wanted for political and cultural crimes by the Draconis Combine. The SLDF troops were unknowing;y doing the dirty work of oppressive Combine policies. This revelation nearly caused the entire Division to mutiny.[33]

Clan InvasionEdit

In March 3050 the Trinary Third Mixed Services of Clan Wolf's 4th Striker Cluster invaded Outpost as part of Operation Revival. They were opposed by the Outpost People's Militia, consisting of two infantry regiments and one armor regiment. The battle was short, with the commander of the People's Militia surrendering to Clan Wolf after the destruction of his tank battalion at Haparanda.[34]

JihadEdit

During the Jihad, Clan Hell's Horses launched an invasion of the Clan Wolf holdings in the Inner Sphere, acquiring holdings for their own relocation to Spheroid space. Outpost was one of the first worlds targetted, and was attacked in the opening wave of attacks that fell between the 21st and 28th of February 3071.[24]
