In the Battle of Wolcott, the attacking Smoke Jaguars fell for Theodore Kurita's deceptions and were outmaneuvered by the elite Genyosha regiments. Did You Know? At first sweeping all before them with their advanced technologies, the Clans met defeat at the Battle of Tukayyid and were stymied by a 15-year truce. On 27 September 3048, the ComStar Explorer Corps JumpShip Outbound Light stumbled onto the Clan Homeworlds, setting in motion a massive invasion of the Inner Sphere by the Clans. In the end six Clans made it through the two days of bidding: the Smoke Jaguars, Jade Falcons, Ghost Bears, Diamond Sharks, Nova Cats and Steel Vipers. The vote to invade failed, but the Crusaders were clearly ascendant and the debate was far from over. Worlds which lay along the border of two invasion corridors would be open to bidding from either Clan, and Inner Sphere forces would be granted the chance to fight with honor through the batchall.  This included efforts to copy the Clans' vaunted battle armor, with early designs like the Infiltrator and Sloth giving way to the Inner Sphere Standard. 1 year ago I’m a little curious as to how you would make the Clan Invasion work narratively.

At first sweeping all before them with their advanced technologies, the Clans met defeat at the Battle of Tukayyid and were stymied by a 15-year truce. Clans Ghost Bear and Smoke Jaguar faced significant difficulties during the second wave, having underestimated the level of supplies needed and the Inner Sphere's willingness to resist occupation. , Coinciding with the Battle of Tukayyid, Primus Waterly attempted to carry out Operation Scorpion, a bold ploy to seize control of the entire Inner Sphere. The Clan Invasion also brought the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere together in a way which had not happened since the fall of the Star League. The Clan Invasion (known to the Clans as Operation REVIVAL) refers to the massive Clan invasion of the Inner Sphere, commencing with the arrival of Clans Jade Falcon, Wolf, Ghost Bear, and Smoke Jaguar in the near, coreward Periphery in August, 3049. The latter wanted to redeploy the KungsArmé to form a defensive perimeter around Rasalhague and seek help from the Combine and FedCom, while Prince Magnusson wanted all units to remain in place and refused to ask for outside assistance. , In an effort to discover what had happened to the Inner Sphere during their exile, the Grand Council agreed to form Intelser, an intelligence service tasked with gathering data on the current situation. The Wolves went on to capture the most worlds of any Clan during the fifth wave, reducing the Rasalhague Republic even further and capturing the important FedCom world of Tamar. The Wolf Khan had an ace up his sleeve though.

Four Clans, with a fifth held in reserve, would invade the Inner Sphere along four separate "corridors" labeled Alpha through Delta, slicing through the territory of the Federated Commonwealth, Free Rasalhague Republic, and Draconis Combine. The Smoke Jaguars were the first to land, but they were worn down by hit-and-run attacks and nearly destroyed when lured into a Com Guards trap.
