During the Third Succession War, Nathan was a rural world periodically used by Free Worlds League Military units as a rest and recuperation berth. In 3018, Nathan was raided by the mercenary unit Snord's Irregulars as part of a campaign the Irregulars had dubbed Operation Junk Yard Dog. The Irregulars were in pursuit of items looted from their museum on Clinton by FWLM troops late in 3017, and had tracked some of the items to Nathan, where they were due to be auctioned off on the open market. Using security codes stolen by the Lyran Commonwealth the Irregulars disguised their DropShip as a League vessel returning from the front lines, receiving clearance to land as guests of the local Earl on March 13th. While on approach to Nathan, the Irregulars executed a combat drop in secret, achieving total surprise over the FWLM elements and supporting commands on Nathan at the time. The Irregulars proceeded to fight a series of simultaneous engagements in cities across Nathan over the next two weeks, retrieving items before the League could bring in additional forces. In one notable instance, the Irregulars managed to recover a number of items from within the city of Fullson, using a hurricane that struck the city as cover to withdraw with the items ahead of League forces.
