Unit Description[edit]

The Fourth Robinson Strikers was a Light Combat Team, utilized to defend the Federated Suns' Draconis March.[1]



Formed during the thirty-second century, the Fourth Robinson Strikers were intended as a mirror of the Davion Assault Guards. Except for the unit's hover squadrons, every war machine is heavy or assault weight, and with the addition of a battalion of artillery and an Arondight Pocket WarShip the Fourth has ably served as a "fire brigade" to the embattled Draconis March.[2]

The Draconis Combine Invasion of 3144[edit]

In the Battle for McGehee, the unit was stationed on-planet when the Sixteenth Galedon Regulars attacked. Despite the Fourth Robinson being outnumbered in BattleMechs their superior skills in combined-arms warfare enabled them to inflict heavy losses on the Sixteenth before the Davion troops finally withdrew to Dahar IV. In one notable incident along the Davis River, the Fourth's 302nd Amphibious Platoon (nicknamed "The Red Trident") used their Sea Fox Battle Armor to ambush a DCMS column escorting the captured command staff of one Strikers battalion. The Red Trident successfully rescued the prisoners and together they were able to retreat off-world with the rest of the Fourth.[3][4]

While the Fourth was recovering on Dahar IV in early 3145, the Draconis Combine sent a small reconnaissance force to the planet. Armor elements of the Dahar Draconis March Militia and a 'Mech company from the Fourth later ambushed the Combine troops in the Harsefield Desert.[5][6]
