Created out of the [[341st Royal BattleMech Division]].

===[[Operation Revival]]===
The 341st fought on the following worlds during the invasion of the [[Inner Sphere]].

In September [[3049]], the 341st landed on [[Paulus Prime]], where they overwhelmed the defending Paulus Guards at Mannington Dwells.

====Wave One====
[[Saint John]] was the location of the next 341st attack, in April 3050. [[Supernova]]s Command and Second were bid against the defending First, Second, Fourth and Sixth St. John Free Brigades. The defenders were aggressive and well-led by a veteran of the [[Free Rasalhague Republic|Rasalhague]] independence struggle, but finally surrendered when [[Star Colonel]] Ramon [[Sender (Bloodname)|Sender]] threatened civilian lives, an action for which he was reprimanded by [[Khan]] [[Ulric Kerensky]].

====Wave Two====
The 341st did not participate in Wave Two.

====Wave Three====
In July [[3050]], Supernova Second, [[Trinary]] Assault and Rogue Fighter [[Star]] invaded [[Harvest]], where they faced the First and Second Royal Harvest [[Division]]s. The defending force included a [[Regiment]]-sized force of old [[BattleMech]]s. The defenders dispersed into the mountains from where they were able to harass the 341st for a week, until they were betrayed. When cornered, the Royals' commander challenged the Wolf commander to a duel to decide the issue, which he lost.

That same month, Supernova Command and Trinary Battle of the 341st, together with the [[Silver Keshik (Clan Wolf)|Silver Keshik]] attacked [[Planting]], which was defended by the [[41st Avalon Hussars|Forty-first Avalon Hussars RCT]]. The Hussars choose to use carefully planned ambushes against the Wolf force, which was forced to call in the [[3rd Battle (Clan Wolf)|Third Battle]] [[Cluster]] in order to destroy the defenders.

====Wave Four====
From August to September [[3050]], Supernovas Command and Second, together with Trinary Assault was locked in battle for [[Engadin]]. The defending First and Third Engadin Home Defense [[Brigade]]s used [[Inferno]] rounds in large quantities against the 341st, which considerably slowed the conquest of the planet.

====Wave Five====
In November [[3051]], the whole of Beta Galaxy landed on [[Severn]]. They faced the [[25th Arcturan Guards|Twenty-fifth Arcturan Guards RCT]], which was led by a veteran of the [[Fourth Succession War]] and the [[War of 3039]]. The first few battles were inconclusive, due in part to the Arcturan Guards imposing themselves aggressively on the Wolf forces. Finally, the Third Battle found a weak point in the Guards' lines, and exploited it. Following this event, the Arcturan Guard had to go on the defensive, and eventually retreated off world to [[Colmar]].

The following month saw Beta Galaxy fighting the [[26th Lyran Guards|Twenty-sixth Lyran Guards RCT]] on two separate worlds, first on [[Kobe]] and then on [[Thun]]. On Kobe, the Guards were reinforced by the First and Second Kobe Mechanized Brigades. Beta managed to kill the commander of the Twenty-sixth, [[Hauptmann General]] Joy Corelli in the first battle. Her replacement, [[Leftenant General]] Jinders Green-Davion managed to stablize the situation, but was forced to conclude that the Guards were too damaged to hold Kobe. He then made the decision to retreat to Thun.

Beta Galaxy followed the Guards to Thun, where Khan Radick's impatience led him to order high-risk missions to try to decapitate the Guards' command structure. An initial push by [[Elemental]] Headhunter Stars failed, and Khan Radick personally led a low-level drop to finally decide the issue, pushing the Guards into an off-world retreat.

The 341st's final battle in Wave Five came on [[Diosd]] in February [[3052]]. The planet was defended by the First and Second Diosd Brigades, each consisting of two tank and one infantry regiments, who were unable to stand against the 341st in pitched battle. The planetary government surrendered in relatively short order, but much of the militia dispersed to continue waging a guerrilla war.


===[[Refusal War]]===

As of [[3052]] the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Ramon Sender.
