Operation Bulldog was the military codename for the phase of the Star League offensive against Clan Smoke Jaguar in 3059 that was aimed at liberating that Clan's Occupation Zone in the Inner Sphere. Led by Precentor Martial Anastasius Focht and Archon-Prince Victor Steiner-Davion, the assault succeeded beyond their most optimistic hopes, thanks in large part to a lack of preparedness on the part of Clan Smoke Jaguar and no help from their fellow Clans.[1]

The operation's forces went under the flag of the new Star League Defense Force. The force included a large quality of the Draconis Combine army and newly claimed bondsmen of Clan Nova Cat, whom in secret, had defected to the Star League.

An earlier military operation, Operation Bird Dog, paved the way for Operation Bulldog by softening Smoke Jaguar garrison forces.[2]


Operation Bulldog started with two waves, which were impressively successful in reaching their objectives. This momentum was briefly hindered by a Smoke Jaguar counterattack, which was largely unsuccessful. The SLDF forces regrouped and pushed twice more in waves three and four, which succeeded in securing yet more planets for the Inner Sphere.[3]

Clantech Refits[edit]

During the early waves of the operation, the SLDF captured large stockpiles of Clan Smoke Jaguar supplies and equipment. With this newfound cache of technology, a number of quick field configurations for Inner Sphere OmniMechs were developed in an effort to boost the invading forces' effectiveness in later waves. Below is a list of these alternate configurations:
