UNIT HISTORY
Author: Adam 'Gunman' Wolf

Unit Creation and Development

The Legionnaires were founded in 3058 by Jaime Wolf's cousin, John "Eagle" Wolf. The unit was sponsored by the Wolf's Dragoons, and as such, received its first missions through them. After being approved by the MRBC, John purchased two BattleMechs from the facilities on Outreach. After receiving a considerable discount for being sponsored by Wolf's Dragoons, who owns the facilities, he procured an Artic Fox and an old Inner Sphere Hunchback which had been upgraded to carry more modern technology. After successfully completing three contracts, the unit was then able to acquire an Uziel, followed a short while later by an Artic Wolf and an additional Artic Fox. This was a major milestone for the fledgling unit, as being able to field a complete lance meant that John was ready to separate from Wolf's Dragoons with his Legionnaires and began independent Mercenary operations - all within the first year of the unit’s conception.

For the first three years (3059-3062) of the unit’s independence they hopped from contract to contract, never having a home base. By the end of their fourth year (3062) of operation the Legionnaires had grown greatly and consisted of six fully operational BattleMechs, complete with interchangeable and replacement weapons and armour, and four Battle Armour points. In the fifth year (3063) following their conception, the Legionnaires had their first run in with Clan Jade Falcon - an encounter that would cause the mercenary unit to swear off any further dealings with the fanatical Clan. During that conflict the unit was nearly decimated, and John "Eagle" Wolf nearly lost his life. Fortunately, enough funds existed that the unit was able to be replenished to near-full strength. At the end of the Legionnaires' fifth year (3063) the mercenaries had another run-in with the Jade Falcon Clan - one that proved to be far more fatal. The unit lost three BattleMechs, as well as their Commander, when his signature Cauldron Born's cockpit was destroyed with a single gauss round.

With the death of John Wolf, the unit retreated and regrouped. Leadership was passed down to Adam "Gunman" Wolf, Jaime Wolf's indirect descendant, and John's younger nephew. In retaliation for the death of their previous commander, Adam Wolf led the Legionnaires on a night raid against the nearest Jade Falcon outpost, and managed to recapture John's Cauldron Born as well as a sizeable cache of supplies. A few months later, Benjamin Edward Maxwell enlisted in the Legionnaires. Maxwell quickly proved himself, and rose through the ranks until the unit command structure was modified to allow joint command between Wolf and Maxwell. Maxwell was a long time associate of Adam's and was an extremely adept pilot and capable commander who left ComStar for reasons unknown.

Under new command the unit rebuilt itself to its former strength - two full lances and six Battle Armor points - over the course of the next two years (3064-3066). During that time, it was decided that the unit required a base of operations. New Earth (Tau Ceti IV) was chosen, and an old isolated airfield located on the southern continent was converted into their base. In 3065, Benjamin Maxwell was tasked with obtaining a DropShip in order to increase their availability for contracts. Maxwell returned with an old retrofitted and very well used Star League era vessel, named Thorin. The ancient DropShip was destroyed during Operation: MoonShield II, and replaced with a more modenUnion-class some time later.

The unit has then continued operations till present day. Due to their impressive history and proficiency rating, the Legionnaires have a wide variety of contracts available to them and are never at a lack for work.
