Description:

Situated on the Steiner/Marik border, Uhuru has been much fought over since the outbreak of the First Succession War.

[3014] Exploiting the chaos into which Anton Marik’s Revolt had plunged the Free Worlds League, the Lyran Commonwealth staged several raids into Marik territory. Although most were small unit raids mounted merely to test Marik resolve, others targeted specific objectives such as FWLM supply depots and vital manufacturing plants. Other attacks were more involved affairs, intended by Commonwealth planners to pin down troops to allow smaller Lyran forces unimpeded access to their targets.

Defending Uhuru, the green Thirty-first Marik Militia was besieged in their own base by the Ninth Lyran Regulars and the mercenary Narhal’s Raiders. The Third and Fifth Oriente Hussars rushed to the aid of the Militia. The second half of 3014 netted the Commonwealth tons of material and tied up many Marik regiments the Captain-General desperately needed to re-deploy to deal with his rebellious brother.

[3036] Ever open for opportunities to exploit, the possibilities offered by a distracted Free Worlds prompted Archon Katrina Steiner to keep a close eye on the border despite her own difficulties in Skye and the preparations for a renewed offensive against the Draconis Combine.

Another probe by Lyran forces in August 3036 triggered a pitched battle with the Twentieth Marik Militia on Uhuru. Expecting only light resistance, the Skye forces were surprised to encounter the forward-deployed Militia. The planned objective raid turned into a three week running battle that cost each side approximately a company of ’Mechs before the Steiner troops could link up with their DropShips and escape.
