Clan InvasionEdit

Kempten was conquered in December 3051 during the fifth wave of Operation REVIVAL by Clan Ghost Bear. The 12th Bear Chevaliers was assigned to conquer the planet, which was defended at the time by the Kempten Border Legion, little more than a collection of warriors equipped with 'Mechs and combat vehicles, all of whom were well past their prime. Nevertheless, having heard of the Clan Smoke Jaguar's defeat on Wolcott, the Ghost Bears were leery when the Legion answered their batchall and agreed to fight an honorable, stand-up battle at the amusement park known as Precious Plight. When the Chevaliers landed they found themselves in the middle of a confusing carnival of light and sound: mirrors had been hung by the Legionarries at all angles which served to disorient the Clan OmniMechs' scanners, and a battalion of Devastators caused considerable damage in their opening salvo. The Ghost Bears quickly recovered from their confusion though and fanned out, destroying the slower Devastators and pursuing the survivors to Sacrifice Mound where they were destroyed.[1]
