Additional InformationThe mercenary regiment "Intruders From Hell" is responsible for major raids within the Lyran Commonwealth for years. The unit is based on Leximon, a planet in the Periphery, Marian Hegemony. Due to the high damaged suffered (estimated 3,800,000,000,- C-Notes within the last years) the high command of the LCAF decided after clearance with the Archon to send an expeditionary force with the objective of neutralizing the 'Intruders From Hell'. This task was assigned to the 24th Lyran Guards RCT "The Slashers" which is supported by several small mercenary units. The 24th is a well trained regular combat unit consisting of one regiment of BattleMechs, two regiments of gound vehilces and three infantry regiments. The commander, Leutnant General Thomas, is known as competent and experienced. He and some of the veterans of the 24th were among the troops that repelled Wolfs Dragoons on Hesperus II in 3019.
The "Intruders from Hell" commanded by General Joshua "Hand of Chaos" Zamir consist of three BattleMech battalions, a supporting vehicle battalion and several small infantry units. Zamir is a bold and feared commander. The Intruders are both specialized on hit-and-run-tactics and able to deal with larger engagements, which was experienced by several lyran militias with deadly outcomes. Of late there is no defeat of the Intruders that is worth mentioning. The units of the intruders are surprisingly well maintained considering they are mercenaries operating out of the Periphery. The regiment as a whole can be considered veteran.
Additionaly, there are several notorious Warriors with exeptional skills to be found within the regiment. Among them is Captain Salerno "The Void" Fisten. Rumor has it that his mere presence on the field of battle spreads fear and horror. After "The Void" cleared the field of enemies with his black Jenner nothing but unspectacular silence and void remains. Another rumor has it, that "The Void" is an elite ComStar renegade. His Jenner is exceptionally strong, which was to often noticed to late by his adversaries. The high command of the LCAF knows about 63 confirmed kills. The brass wants his head, if at all possible alive.
Another well-known Warrior is Major Ben "Black Corsair" Pergamon. He stems from the Davion part of the Inner Sphere and is a brilliant und brutal Pilot. In his former unit, the 1st Davion Heavy Guards, he attract attention with negativ behaviour. Prior to being suspended he nicked Lost-Tech from the NAIS with some cronies and fled to the periphery. The "Black Corsair" pilots an upgraded Warhammer, the "Mortalbash", which spreads fear and loathing. Major Pergamon commands the third battalion "Death and Decay". This units consists of a high percentage of heavy 'Mechs and is known as the "battering ram" of the Intruders.
Intelligence assumes that the Marian Hegemony does not openly support the Intruders. Archon Katrina threatened the marian Ceasar with open war should he do so and Marik declared his neutrality concerning this possible war. Nevertheless exceptionally hard engagements are to be expected. The Intruders have a very strong Mech contingent, but the 24th can summon a good deal of vehicle and artillery support as well as well trained infantry units which can secure captured positions. Mercenary units are - besides regular missions - designated for the disruption of supply lines and special missions, like hunting down a command lance in the rear.
