Owner History[edit]

Planetary Info[edit]

Carse is located on the Lyran Commonwealth/Draconis Combine border, has been the site of many raids and battles over the course of the Succession Wars. In addition to this, the double sun and Carse's unusual orbit provide four cycles of seasons. During a Cold Cycle (which is what Carse is in now) the temperature plummets, oceans freeze, and only DropShips and the largest air vehicles can survive the heavy winds. Fortunately for the economy, the petrochemicals and metal ores in the planet's crust can still be routed to the factories that produce plastics and plastisteel. Most of the war damage has been confined to areas far away from cities.[1] Due to its proximity to the Combine, Carse also served as a waystation for Lyran traders looking to enter or leave Combine space.[25]

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

In February 3052 Carse was invaded by Clan Wolf as part of the Fifth Wave of Operation Revival. The Red Keshik, 11th Wolf Guards and 37th Striker Clusters were opposed only by the 2nd Freemen, however in a rare strategic mistake the Wolf forces made their initial landing on the wrong continent: whereas the capital city New Bonholm and the majority of the planet's resources and industry were on the norther landmass, the Wolf LZ was on the southern one. This gave the Freemen plenty of time to reconnoiter the Wolves and realize just how hopelessly they were outmatched. Thankfully the planet's constant, frigid storms grounded all aerospace forces, giving the Freemen a fighting chance when they confronted the Wolves at Molde and then at Trosa. While they were able to earn the Clan warriors' respect the Freemen could not prevent them from conquering the world, and the regiment was forced to retreat to Ueda.[26]
