Unit HistoryEdit

Invasion of KashkurEdit

Shutting Down Imulsion PipelinesEdit

In 17 B.E., Howerd Company was stationed at Forward Operating Base Tyro, in Kashkur. It was commanded by Captain Adam Fenix, along with his Lieutenant, Helena Stroud. Col. James Choi arrived at the base and ordered Adam to take Howerd Company and shut down Imulsion pipelines at Borlaine and Ecian Ridge, and reroute their flow to Gatka. After Adam briefed the company, they broke camp and headed to Borlaine.[1] They successfully diverted the flow of the pipelines, although the Imulsion companies were angry with them.[2]

Battle of ShavadEdit

After they finished shutting down the pipelines, Howerd Company went to the city of Shavad, to help assist other COG units fighting against the UIR invasion. The company took heavy causalities, with more than half the Company being killed or severely injured. They quickly became pinned down along a riverbank next to Gorlian Square. Adam called in Terns to casevac his wounded, and the Sherrith Cavalry provided artillery fire on a sniper position attacking the Company. At that point, twenty-two Gears in the company had been killed, and Pvt. Kinnear, one of the Company's medics, had set up an aid station in one of the few intact buildings.[3] After the Terns arrived and evacuated the wounded, Adam, Helena, and two other Gears from the company cleared out a building with a sniper in it, but when they regrouped with the rest of the company, Adam received orders from Choi to fall back after the Sherriths lost the last bridge the COG held. What remained of Howerd Company piled into trucks and rushed to regroup with the rest of the COG forces in the city.[4]

Battle of RaganiEdit

Howerd Company fell back to Lakar, and buried their dead. However, Choi ordered them back out to the city of Ragani to keep the road in the town open for the Andius Fusiliers Regiment to pass through. After destroying two UIR APCs, Adam contacted Choi, who informed him that twenty more UIR vehicles, including tanks, were approaching town. Howerd Company came under heavy attack, and Adam and Cpl. Collins took out a Pariah Tank with Molotov Cocktails. As they fell back to the company's lines, Adam was hit in the leg and wounded. Kinnear came out to assist him, and they saw the Andius Fusiliers arrive and destroy the remaining UIR vehicles. Howerd Company lost ten Gears in the battle, and several more were wounded.[5] After the invasion of Kashkur ended, Adam was promoted to Major, but retired and accepted a job at the Defense Research Agency. Helena was also promoted to Captain, and given command of Howerd Company.[6]
