History[edit]

As at December 3059 the Whirlwind-class destroyer Ursus was serving as the CGB Ursus within the Clan Ghost Bear touman and was part of a naval convoy moving through the Deep Periphery when it encountered Task Force SERPENT.[1]

The Ursus was accompanied by a sister ship, the CGB Fire Fang and a Congress-class frigate, the CGB Shining Claw.[1] The Shining Claw, Fire Fang and Ursus moved to engage Task Force SERPENT while attempting to buy time for the Invader-class JumpShip CGB Winter Wind to quick-charge and jump out of the system to warn the Clans of the presence of an Inner Sphere WarShip flotilla moving through the Deep Periphery.[2]

The Inner Sphere forces led by the Com Guard Cameron-class battlecruiser ISS Invisible Truth were the victors in the engagement, subsequently dubbed Trafalgar, and the Ursus was destroyed; the Shining Claw was also lost, and the Task Force claimed the intact Fire Fang as isorla, along with some three hundred warriors and more than a thousand civilian caste members. The Winter Wind was unable to jump out before being boarded and captured, leaving the Clans unaware of the existence of Task Force SERPENT.[3]
