April 16th, 3050
Elements of 9th Battalion 3rd Regiment of the Robinson Rangers and the 3rd Deneb Light Cavalry were recently deployed to support a larger force assembling near the Benet III system on the frontier. Benet III has been home to some of the most intense fighting in the Inner Sphere within the past 6 months.
The reinforcements sent include the infamous Black Company Ravens, having just come off a tour on Breed to suppress Drac forces in the area, and the 3rd Denebs 714th 1st Armor Regiment. The ¾ strength Ranger Company provided the majority of the heavy Mech support during the operation.
Heavy loses were reported for both sides, with an unconfirmed Drac Mech kill tally of close to 26 downed Mechs. Mixed forces also included the destruction of several of the dracs finest armor units, as well as the capturing of several intact Mech chassis, rather than allow the Mechs to even set foot on Davion Dropships for salvage, it has been documented that several Davion salvage crews were reported placing thermite charges inside weapon systems and other essential Mech subsystems to prevent the Mechs from ever being used again.
For all of us here on Benet III,
