Chukchi III is the third planet in the Chukchi system and has three moons named Koryak, Magadan and Sakha.[2]

Planetary History[edit]

The aerospace weaponry produced by Maxell Metals was considered be essential to the defense of the Commonwealth, but the citizens of Chukchi III were far from pleased to be the ones supplying it. Their once-beautiful planet was increasingly covered with the scabs of industrialization, and their once-peaceful cities were engulfed by crime. Local protesters repeatedly damaged the planet's new factories and were willing to be complicit in assisting raiders intent on doing the same.[1]

This tension stemmed from the discovery of titanium in the planet's crust. The resulting economic boom was endorsed by Chuckchi's president, but the Duke of Chuckchi advocated a slower, more considered approach to growth.[1]

By the end of the Jihad the Maxell Metals Incorporated factories on Chukchi III were under threat from both the ecoterrorists and the Malthus Syndicate. Despite the pressure the company was under, the products produced on Chukchi III continued to remain highly sought after.[2] The factories were protected by half a dozen emplaced turrets; each sported a mix of pulse lasers and extended range lasers and contained a bunker suitable for one or two squads of infantry. The infantry were armed with both lethal and non-lethal weapons, although the non-lethal options were largely for use on local protestors.[10]
