Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Coudoux was conquered by Clan Smoke Jaguar in May 3050 during the Second Wave of Operation REVIVAL. The planet was defended by a single company of 'Mechs, a mercenary group known as Colette's Crusaders, which chose to make their stand at the Lodio Spaceport. They were destroyed when Alpha Battle Star of the First Trinary Battle, Jaguar Grenadiers, quickly overran their position and seized their DropShip as spoils of war.[5]

Operation BULLDOG[edit]

Coudoux was invaded in the third wave of Operation BULLDOG by the First Amphigean Light Assault Group, Second Sword of Light, First Aragon Borderers, and the Thirty-fourth Division. The defending Eighth Provisional Garrison Cluster barely fought and instead chose to retreat off-planet.[6]
