Chesterton (Individual Union-class DropShip)
The Chesterton was a Union-class DropShip that took part in the Federated Suns' ill-fated attack on Highspire in 3071. Arriving in-system on 25 August at a pirate jump point), it deployed a BattleMech company of volunteers under Chesterton Home Guard Captain Henri Arduin on a suicidal diversion raid to cover the insertion of Rabid Foxes special operations forces elsewhere.
Chesterton was explicitly named for the ravaged world of Chesterton, and its mission was as part of a retribution raid in response to the Capellan Confederation's (and specifically, Warrior House Rakshasa's) gruesome attack on the world in early 3071.
