Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

The Svarstaad Planetary Militia made a spirited defense to the attack by Clan Wolf but they were destroyed in the defense of Svarstaad. The militia was good, and could have mounted a valid defense, but the governing officers wanted the unit to defend from fixed positions in the capital city. The unit would have preferred to defend from the surrounding hills and forests but were not allowed to. A compromise was reached, but the final defense tactics used did not harm Clan Wolf.[31]

Jihad[edit]

As of 3072, a BattleMech Trinary commanded by Quinn Kerensky and named "Quinn's Ravagers" from the 1st Falcon Hussars raided prior to July the planet.

Quinn Kerensky issued a Trial of Possession for her genetic legacy and was refused. Her two DropShips made planetfall on two different sides of a mountain ridge. The Blue Keshik split to handle the two forces while the Sixth Wolf Cavalry Cluster defended the cities. Galaxy Commander Shistu Sradac found instead of brave Falcon warriors a DropShip with a few abtakha from the Dell Solahma Cluster‎‎. Meanwhile, Star Captain Harold Kerensky was attacked by the Falcons' full Trinary. They fought bravely but the two Binaries were no match for the ferocious Ravagers. Harold Kerensky asked for safcon but was denied as Quinn tore apart his Daishi single handedly and then vaporized the crippled 'Mech's cockpit with a PPC blast. The Falcons then returned to the Jade Falcon Occupation Zone with a Star's worth of salvageable 'Mechs.[32]
