Since the Space
campaign started, the Harriers have served as follows:
Spring, 3025: While finishing service with the Duke of Kalidasa, the
Harriers were raided by the House Liao units that ambushed and destroyed
the command lance. Harrier counter-strikes discovered Star League-era
experimental material and mechs.
June, 3025: The Harriers took a raid contract with the LCAF to perform
a raid on Proserpina. Transport to Steiner Space and then to Proserpina
took until November. While raiding, they were involved with three actions
against the 2nd Legion of Vega, the third of which included the capture
of the Kurita heir.
One company of Legion mechwarriors
killing their officers & ISP observer. They then made contact with the
raiders. The mutineers joined the Harriers, which expanded to three mech
companies, an aero-mech company, and an infantry company.
Select Harriers were transported to Tharkad to present the Dragon's Heir
to Katherine Steiner. He was than ransomed back to the Combine.
May, 3026: The Harriers were awarded a sweet contract (so they thought)
for garrison duty on Somerset under the local Duke-holder. However, the
Duke-holder was beset by a local uprising that he was keeping from the
Steiner government. The locals had some mechs and used guerilla tactics
to good advantage against the Harriers. A climactic battle took a lot of
the fighting power out of the uprising - as well as destroying half the Harrier's
Mid-3026: In our campaign, House Kurita, Liao, and
Marik did not sit about idly by, waiting for Steiner and
Davion to form and unstoppable Alliance. They struck first, taking
several key worlds severing Davion and Steiner by some 50
lightyears. Additional raids were launched up and down the Steiner
borders to keep them from concentrating troops to launch a counter-offensive.
In November, the Harriers sent a raiding company out to the rim to get enough
booty to buy replacement mechs. It was a successful raid; between the raid
and spending nearly all the Harriers spare cash, they were able to replace
most of the missing mechs.
April, 3027: The Harriers neglected to renew their contract for garrison
duty. Instead, they took contract to join the impending offensive to open
the Davion Corridor from the Steiner end. Lead elements arrived
on Caph in the end of September, 3027, in time to help mop up.
December, 3027: The Harriers formed part of the first-wave assault
force on Fomalhaut.
January, 3028: The Harriers are withdrawn from combat.
