Clan Wolf Invasion of the Republic (3137)
The plan called for Clan Wolf to invade the former Republic of the Sphere worlds in act to distract for Inner Sphere powers from Clan Wolf's move to the old Free Worlds League space. It is pointed out that Prefecture IX is a perfect funnel leading to Terra.
The Clan would announce to the Inner Sphere that the Wolves were tired of waiting, and had decided to take Terra for themselves. This act began to distract the nations of the Inner Sphere so the exodus to League space could begin.
Invasion forces were are initially led by Star Colonels Alaric Wolf, Donovan Wolf, and Bjorn Wolf.
The invasion hit worlds primarily in former Prefecture Nine, which included the worlds of Yed Posterior, Baxter, and Corridan IV. The announcement prompted the unification of militia, mercenary, and other organizations in former prefecture to unit. The actual assaults would be repelled, leaveing the Wolves to only taking Corridan IV. They also hit Jade Falcon controlled worlds such as Izar, Ryde, Kimball II & Kimball IV.
Later Unukalhai was conquered by Star Colonel Donovan's forces in early February, 3137 and his forces repel the Wolf Hunters from reclaiming the world. Alaric Wolf is bargained back into the Clan Wolf. On an outbound DropShip, Khan Seth Ward met with his Star Colonels to set Clan Wolf schedules to attack three worlds, Skondia, Nusakan, Alkalurops.
Star Colonel Donovan announced that he will lead Clan Wolf's Alpha Galaxy in a bid to conquer Skondia & Nusakan.
While Donovan's rivals Star Colonel Hestia bid the Seventh Battle Cluster against Star Colonel Edward's Third Battle Cluster for right to conqueror Alkalurops. While Donovan gives Alaric command of the 4th Wolf Guards and 279th Battle Cluster to take Nusakan.
On March 15th, the Skondia Rangers with the mercenary battalion the Wolf Hunters, faced Clan Wolf Star Colonel Donovan's 328th Assault Cluster and 13th Wolf Guard. Following Colonel Kerensky's plan, the Rangers and the Hunters use tactical trickery to get Donovan to split his forces multiple times and then take him apart piece meal.
While Alaric arrives in Nusakan's orbit with 279th and keeps 4th Wolf Guard as reserves as he makes approach.
Nusakan is defended by three military formations, the remains of the Stormhammers commanded by Colonel Carl Tucker, the mercenary unit Colton's Screaming Demons lead by Colonel Aynn Colton, and The Le Blon Djinn commanded by Colonel Verena.
Alaric, deciding Colonel Colton's unit was most venerable of the three, made the initial attack against her, Having an Aerospace Star strafe and destroy her entire light mech company. After this attack, he managed to convince her to fight him with her command lance.
The arrogant Colton fought to humiliate him. However, Alaric managed down all for her Mechs, retaining his rank as Star Colonel. He allowed her and her people return to her forces and face him with rest of the world's defenders.
Days later, Colonel Verena meets with him and negotiates to fight a Trial of Possession for the planet. On the 19th, they meet on arctic region known as Mudana Refuge. There, all units fought into a tough battle. Taking heavy damage, Wolf forces succeeded. They managed to destroy the Djinn and batter the rest of her allied forces.
The next day, Anastasia Kerensky arrived to challenge Alaric, only to find that he ceded the planet to her due to his forces being recalled by Khan Ward.
