The Albiero Prefecture had at least one functioning recharge station during the thirty-first century.[1][2]

Albiero III - more commonly referred to simply as Albiero - is the third planet in the Albiero system and had served as the Prefecture capital of the Albiero Prefecture and home to the Holden Mining Corporation.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

When Albiero was first settled it had vast reserves of iron and copper ores. This mineral wealth attracted a number of mining concerns who exploited the desposits up until the end of the Star League era, at which point the various advanced mining machines in use began to break down. The mining concerns went out of business as the machines failed completely, causing the planetary economy to decline sharply.[1]

By the end of the Third Succession War Albiero was nearly a dead world, and the natural resources had been almost completely exhausted. The Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery were still making extensive use of the abandoned mines on Albiero for training, although the Matabushi Incorporated company still maintained a headquarters on the planet.[6]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Albiero was invaded by Clan Smoke Jaguar in July 3050, one of the last worlds invaded during the Third Wave of Operation REVIVAL. The battle between the 8th Albiero Militia and the First Jaguar Guards' Trinary Command, Trinary Striker and Alpha Elemental Star was particularly fierce, with the militia immediately attacking the invaders upon their landing and pushing them towards the Dartson Ridge. Backed up against the ridge line the militia's armoured battalion used artillery to trap the Clan forces. This lasted until Trinary Striker broke free in a fierce assault and eliminated the artillery units, allowing Trinary Command and the Elemental Star to disengage and locate the Eight's supply depots. Here they laid in wait for the militia to come and resupply, and when the militia regiment's command company walked right into the trap they were annihilated, ending the battle. Only a few companies chose to continue fighting, escaping into the hills and launching periodic raids on the Smoke Jaguar garrison throughout the rest of the invasion.[7]

Operation BULLDOG[edit]

Albiero was invaded in the fourth wave of Operation BULLDOG by the Second Dieron Regulars, Warrior House Daidachi, First Wolf Strike Cluster, and the Crater Cobras. The defending Eleventh Jaguar Regulars were heavily outnumbered and decided to fight to the last man, and eventually lost the planet.[8]

During the Clan Invasion, Matabushi Incorporated moved its headquarters to Pesht. Since that time the world had served as a prefecture capital and training facility, but no other real improvement had been made. Corant City eventually became the planetary capital in 3079.[2]
