1st February 3092

In retaliation for last years uprisings on Orestes, sponsored by the Lyran Alliance, the 12th Bear Guards, the Growling Bears, landed on the world of Apostica. Acting on intelligence gathered from rebels captured on Orestes, the 12th moved against the two rebel training centers on the world, destroying both after savage fighting. En route back to their dropships, the Dominion forces were engaged by the Apostica planetary militia. In a short, pitched battle, the Militia fought bravely but were quickly routed with heavy loss of life. Whether this incident has shattered the fragile peace between the Lyran and Rasalhague states remains to be seen.

15 August 3095

Contract Summary:
On the 28th of July, 3095, a fleet of ships carrying Beta Galaxy of the Rasalhague Dominion jumped into the Schuyler System of the Draconis Combine. After a brief and one sided battle with a supply convoy at the jump point, the Dominion forces, led by Star Colonel Cade MacKenzie’s 12th Bear Guards (Growling Bears) landed on the world. After a brief fight at the Landing Zone, Junsan’s Ridge, the 12th pressed on and took the city of Sarasota. Combine Armor and Mech forces attempted an ambush on Cade and his Command Nova, but the Watch caught wind of the plan and Cade countered the ambush with the quick deployment of the 173rd Supernova Trinary, costing the Combine a mixed battalion of forces. The Combine forces fell back to the fortified city of Nakura. At Nakura, a binary of the 18th walked into an ambush of automated turrets, taking heavy losses. Called on to assist Star Colonel Xavier Hall with taking the city, Cade’s Growling Bears launched a night time assault, the light elements of the unit breaking into the city and disabling the turret control center. As other units took control of Gritzia Air Base and seized command of the skies over Schuyler, the 101st Binary rushed ahead and took command of the heavy bridges leading to Tsurara City in advance of the 332nd Assault Cluster. After holding for nearly a week, the Combine defenders fell back to a final line of defense before Fort Calsdan. The elite First Schuyler Guard held the last line but a concentrated attack by the 12th Bear Guards and 14th Battle shattered them. A mismatched regiment of armor, mechs and infantry managed to escape off world as the city fell. Beta Galaxy is refitting and awaiting word of their next target in the new war against the Combine.

From 20 October 3095 to 25 Nov 3095

Contract Summary:
Rasalhague Dominion's Beta Galaxy landed on world of Hanover as part of their drive into the Draconis Combine. The 12th Bear Guards struck at the city of Cologne, in a bid to take control of the port early. The 1st Genyosha had other ideas. In a series of pitched battles, the Genyosha and the Growling Bears ground at each other until reinforcements from the rest of Beta Galaxy arrived. Staging a fighting withdrawal, the Genyosha and the First Schuyler Lancers pulled back to the capital of Wexler. However, without reinforcements they were eventually forced to concede the capital and withdraw from the continent. They have rallied at Yoshiteru Mountain for evacuation from the planet. Some fighting continues on the world but the majority of the action seems to be wrapping up. Though the Dominion was successful, it was a costly victory. The Levianthan-Class warship Great Bear was lost in a titanic space battle with the Mount Nikita Battleship group. The Combine reportedly lost a cruiser and the Nikita has moderate damage but the fleet escaped.

From 15 December 3097 to 15 April 3098

Contract Summary:
The 12th Bear Guards took up position as the garrison of Coudoux, the furthers world along the most recent incursion against the Combine. Intelligence indicated that some Combine forces remained on world and the Guards were given orders to find and neutralize them. In short order, the Bear Guards found, engaged and destroyed the remnants of the Coudoux Defenders which had gone to ground. However, this was just the beginning of the fighting on Coudoux which would become an incredibly active world during the first months of the 3098. A delegation from Clan Wolf arrived to challenge the Growling Bears to a Trial of Possession for an Orion IIC held in the Guards TO&E. Before the trial could take place, mercenaries arrived to reinforce the Coudox Defenders. Star Colonel Robert Kerensky of the 3rd Wolf Lancers postponed the Trial as the Bear Guards met and crushed the arriving mercenaries in three days of intense combat. One dropship was captured on the ground along with the mercenary leader. In the aftermath, Robert Kerensky and Cade MacKenzie renegotiated the Trial of Possession. A single warrior from each command fought a duel for the Orion IIC. Though a sharp contest, Star Captain Brett of the Bear Guards defeated Star Commander Byran of the 3rd Wolf Lancers. Things are quieting down now on Coudoux as the Wolves have departed. But Cade and his officers are planning a retaliatory strike at the Combine...and awaiting approval for such a move.

From 20 April 3098 to 28 May 3098

Contract Summary:
The 12th Bear Guards (The Growling Bears) took part in an operation designed to sting the Draconis Combine and rob them of forward bases to launch a counterstrike in the wake of the Star Bridge War. Landing on the water world of Jeanette, Star Colonel Cade MacKenzie and his forces split up by Trinaries, performing a series of raids that destroyed radar and ladar sites, power stations, air bases, port facilities, supply depots and repair stations. Defended sites were bypassed in favor of lightly defended ones as the Dominion was seeking to destroy the ability of the Combine to use the world as a staging base. At first put off by these attacks, the 6th Arkab Legion used clever tactics like borrowing militia mechs and making a show of redistributing their forces, seemingly leaving their primary base on Torii Island undefended. When Cade and the 181st Trinary took the bait, the 6th Arkab sprung and ambush. In the ensuing battle, the remains of the 6th Arkab Air Wing assaulted the dropship fleet and forced the 17th Pursuit Binary to remain near the fleet rather than assist Cade. Light mechs and fast hovertanks of the Arkab inflicted moderate damage on the 181st but took considerable losses in the process. In the end, the tactics of Star Captain Tashira of the RDS Hartford led to the destruction of a Nagumo-class dropship and forced the remaining Combine fighters to break off long enough for the raiding parties on the world to be reembarked. Though the Combine claims to have fended off the 12th Bear Guards, the facts remain that massive damage was done to the worlds military infrastructure and only a third of the 6th Arkab Air Wing is currently active.
