Description:

[3030] The Killer Bees, formed shortly before the Fourth Succession War by former Cal-Boeing pilots, left Lyran employ in 3027 for a three-year cadre contract in the Magistracy of Canopus. When the Magistracy declared war on House Liao shortly before their contract expired, the MAF offered the Bees a follow-on contract to fight alongside their students, the Magistracy Militia, in the campaign. This brought the two units to Andarmax, an “easy target” intended to give the inexperienced Militia the opportunity to test their skills. Though notionally subordinate to the Canopian line unit, the Killer Bees guided the Militia to a swift and relatively bloodless victory, taking command of Andarmax less than a week after landing in December 3030.

[3034] MacGraw’s Marauders, the Killer Bees, and the Magistracy Militia knew full well the CCAF would soon come gunning for them, but when Liao assault vessels appeared in the system on 9 August 3034 they breathed a sigh of relief that it was “only” Kamakura’s Hussars and the fifth McCarron’s regiment, Rob’s Renegades, rather than House Dai Da Chi. Against these, they thought, stood a slim (if vain) hope of victory.

The CCAF force quickly disabused them of that notion, staging a combat drop and quickly moving to attack the Canopian positions. Two days of close-in fighting against the Capellans convinced the two mercenary units that escape was the best plan of action, but the MAF mercenary liaison officer attached to the Militia refused, instead ordering them both into the path of Rob’s Renegades.

The Marauders complied (and were trounced by the larger formation) but the Killer Bees refused, citing their contractual right to avoid unnecessary damage in a futile situation, which Andarmax was. They terminated their contact and signaled their intention to withdraw, which the CCAF troops allowed. McGraw’s Marauders escaped two days later, a shadow of their former selves, while the Magistracy Militia was largely wiped out.
