As part of Operation Revival, the unit fought a number of battles during the Invasion.
In August 3050 the 2nd Jaegers struck the planet of Blackjack, inflicting over 80% losses on the defending Blackjack School of Conflict's Training Battilon. Despite many in the LCAF considering graduates of the Blackjack school almost like bandits, the 2nd Jaegers were suitably impressed by their performance, considering them among the most honorable Inner Sphere opponents they'd encountered so far. A number of the Blackjack cadets would be claimed as Bondsman, the most notable being Mark Harris who successfully defeated a Falcon warrior in an impromptu Trial of Possession for his family's home. 
In September 3050, The Jaegers fought for control of the world of Leskovik, where they fought with the Leskovik Militia at the site of the Leskovik Refinery Complex. During the course of the battle, a liquid natural gas tank was hit by weapon fire and exploded. The Jaegers and the Militia were consumed by the blast. It was not found out until later that the explosion was accidental.
Battle of Tukayyid
As the Com Guard forces attempted to block the Jade Falcon withdrawal, the 2nd Jaeger ran into the 309th Division. In some of the most bloodthirsty fighting to have occurred on Tukayyid, both units practically destroyed each other, the green 309th inflicting nearly 70% losses on the Jaegers, but suffering even worse damage in return.  
After Operation Revival
The Second Jaegers and the Fifth Battle Cluster were stationed on Antares in September 3053 when the First and 2nd Viper Guards mounted a diversionary attack in support of a push on Graus to recover a rumoured Star League cache.
The defending Jade Falcon forces were hampered by the collaboration of the local population with the Steel Viper attackers and were forced to retreat from the world.
Post Refusal War
In aftermath of the Refusal War, the unit was transferred to the Second Line unit, Iota Galaxy. Mix frontline/second line galaxy, the 2nd Jaegers were assigned with the Galaxy to defend from Clan Wolf. In 3059, the unit adopted a new insignia honoring its Cluster's then commander Malthus's exploits on during Operation Revival. Where the Insignia shows Elemental Battle Armor fighting alongside a Centurion BattleMech.
In 3062 the Second was on Sudeten when they were attacked by the One-Eyed Jacks mercenary command, all former alumni of the Blackjack School of Conflict. The Second wasn't prepared for the underhanded tricks and unusual combat methods of the Jacks, and took heavy losses. Despite this, the Second inflicted heavy losses on the mercenaries as well.
The Second Falcon Jaegers landed on Zhongshan in 3087. They faced the Thirteenth Wolf Guards and several mercenary and militia units. This conflict was the first time the Falcons employed the Eyrie BattleMech, and it was very effective. Despite this, the Falcons didn't take the world.
