Apocryphal Content Starts

The information after this notice comes from apocryphal sources; the canonicity of such information is uncertain.
Please view the reference page for information regarding their canonicity.

According to an apocryphal source (the German BattleTech novel Duo Infernale), the fourth planet in the Carstairs system was named New Tucson. As of 3061 the habitable planet was the site of a major copper mining operation by FrictionTechInc. who had hired a small mercenary outfit consisting of seven BattleMechs and infantry for protection. The whole operation was a clandestine ComStar operation in search of a Star League facility on the planet. It was found, but the operation had been betrayed and on 9 April 3061 the mercenary base was wiped out in a surprise attack. Four nuclear bombs were stolen from the Star League cache and a fifth set to detonate with a timer, destroying the cache and (it is implied) the entire mining operation.
