Fourth Succession War[edit]

The LCAF ordered the two mercenary commands Mobile Fire and Bad Dream unit to challenge the 22nd Rasalhague Regulars on Gunzburg. The defending 21st Rasalhague Regulars went underground and avoided contact with the Steiner employed mercenaries. After several weeks the mercenaries set a trap. The CO of the Mobile Fire send a communicate to the Bad Dream command, stating that most of his forces were sick from a local illness. The Regulars intercepted the message and gathered their forces to strike at the weakened invaders. When the Rasalhague Regulars advanced the abandoned camp, the Mechs of Mobile Fire emerged from the nearby swamps. When the Bad Dream advanced from the rear, the CO of the surrounded DCMS unit ordered his troops to surrender. However, the CO of the Rasalhague Regulars commited suicide by swallowing a cyanide capsule. [1]
