Planetary Description[edit]

Filtvelt is considered to have low gravity as compared to the Terran norm.[36]

Planetary History[edit]

Age of War[edit]

During the Age of War Filtvelt was the capital world of the Outer March region of the Federated Suns; the last Prince of the Outer March was Nuno Gutierrez, who ruled the March during the Davion Civil War and remained carefully neutral; when First Prince Alexander Davion successfully won the war and secured his hold on the throne once and for all, his first act in 2541 was to abolish the old March system, dissolving both the Outer and the Terran Marches and absorbing the worlds into the revamped Capellan March, Crucis March and Draconis March.[3]

Star League[edit]

In 2725, the 691st Jump Infantry Brigade, a part of the 123rd Jump Infantry Division, along with its attached company of Land Air 'Mech defeated a pirate company of BattleMechs on Filtvelt after authorities put out a call for help to the SLDF. Thus the 123rd Jump Infantry Division earned its nickname of "The Filtvelt Fusiliers".[37]

Jihad[edit]

On the 20th of February 3072, the Filtvelt Coalition declared its independence from the Federated Suns, with Filtvelt as the capital world of this new nation.[38][39] The Coalition Armory plant on Filtvelt began building RetroTech BattleMechs during the Jihad as the Coalition's only means of supply the Filtvelt Citizen's Militia with BattleMechs. RetroTech production continued after the Jihad until at least mid-3081.[40]
