The Cusset system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Clan Hell's Horses Occupation Zone.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Cusset system is located near the Biota and Maestu systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Cusset system was settled at some point during or shortly after the First Exodus from Terra, and was a member of the Tamar Pact prior to the formation of the Lyran Commonwealth in the mid-twenty-fourth century.[3]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

In early November 3051 Cusset was one of the first worlds attacked by Clan Wolf during the Fifth Wave of the resumed Operation REVIVAL. The Choyer and Gurbeng Garrison Clusters faced off against the First and Third Cusset Militia Divisions, two battalions of old 'Mechs and six regiments of tanks and infantry, at Redbrook Glen, Sandal's Woods and Nixon Bluffs. While the freeborn warriors had little difficulty handling the militia forces, many more fell after the battle to the Cusset Crud, a virulent virus even the Clans' medical technology could not defeat.[18]

Jihad[edit]

In early March 3069 Clan Wolf took advantage of the Clan Jade Falcon attacks on the Lyran Alliance to launch their own attacks on several Falcon-held worlds. Cusset was one of the worlds the wolves conquered in the first two weeks of March.[25]
