M.E.R.C.S. Battletech Campaign
In the early 31st century the Grey Death Legion discovered the Helm memory core and kick-started the rediscovery of many lost technologies. In secret Hanse Davion and Katrina Steiner signed the FedCom Accords, a secret pact to join the Federated Suns and Lyran Commonwealth. Using his marriage to Melissa Steiner as cover, Hanse Davion began the Fourth Succession War by launching a massive invasion against his enemies. The war ended with Davion capturing half of the Capellan Confederation and securing a vital link to the Commonwealth, but failing to defeat the Draconis Combine.
It is out of the fires of this 4th Succession War that the M.E.R.C.S. Company has emerged. Battle-hardened veterans striking out on their own to build a life for themselves on the backs of their mighty ’Mechs. Originally based on Astrokaszy, the unit has since relocated to Herotitus to take advantage of the demand for good mercenaries as the Andurien Crisis War rages in the area.
