|First Diosd Brigade|
|Unit Profile (as of 3052)|
|Parent Formation||Diosd Militia|
In February 3052 Diosd was invaded by Clan Wolf as part of the Fifth Wave of Operation REVIVAL. Defending Diosd were the First and a sister formation, the Second Diosd Brigade. The 341st Assault Cluster - a part of Clan Wolf's Beta Galaxy - battled the militia forces at El Bur and Bender Beila, with the advanced Clan BattleMechs easily defeating the militia's armored vehicles. After Bender Beila the planetary government surrendered and ordered all surviving militia forces to lay down their arms. Most refused, and instead fled into the planet's swamps, forests and mountain ranges; they were further aided when militia sympathizers destroyed the planet's military computer network, making it impossible for Clan Wolf to ascertain just how large a force of guerrillas were in hiding. This resulted in front-line troops having to garrison the planet to ensure the stability of the Wolves' occupation. It is not known till when this resistance endured.
