Era Succession Wars era


The 4th Succession War began with Hanse Davion presenting his new bride with the greatest wedding gift ever: The Capellan Confederation. This book documents scenarios for use with BattleTech, BattleForce and MechWarrior. The contents of this book span battles from the opening shots on the Capellan world of Shensi in 3028 to defensive operations on the Federated Suns worlds of Northwind and Harrow's Sun in 3029, just before the lull in fighting which neatly bisected the 4th Succession War.

From the back cover[edit]

ARMIES of BattleMechs stride toward their objectives, razing cities with their missiles, lasers, PPCs, and autocannons on the way. The language of battle is blood, and the cries of the homeless echo in the troubled sleep of every MechWarrior.

Torn from the pages of the Fourth Succession War, this scenario pack contains battles from the Davion/Liao front, the Steiner/Kurita front, as well as a series of engagements between Wolf's Dragoons and their former employer, the Draconis Combine, in their private war with the Dragon.

See how the Federated Suns bites pieces out of the Capellan Confederation how some Lyran/Draconis battles could have gone either way, and how an elite mercenary unit takes on everything Takashi Kurita can throw at it. Command groups of regiments in climactic engagements or play the role of a commando on a secret and sensitive mission.

Put yourself to the test in 16 BattleTech, 3 BattleForce, and 2 MechWarrior scenarios from the Fourth Succession War.
