Planetary History[edit]

Fort Loudon was first settled in 2460. The planet was initially named LC/T-2395, but was renamed to honor Captain Calvin Loudon for his actions on Nox in 2465, wherein he saved his command at the cost of his life. Fort Loudon has three continents, Brunei, Tunisonda, and Anderssen. Anderssen has the capital city (Palos) and extensive gold and platinum mines. Brunei is largely covered by jungle-clad mountain ranges, while Tunisonda is the planet's breadbasket. During the Star League the SLDF stationed the 123rd Infantry Division at Fortress Loudon, a Castle Brian that remained operational through the Succession Wars and Clan Invasion. The LCAF made extensive use of Fortress Loudon and Fort Loudon's strategic position to raid the Draconis Combine and the Clan occupation zones.[26]

Clan Wolf attacked and conquered Fort Loudon during the second half of January 3070 as one of a series of assaults into Lyran Alliance space, shadowing the path taken by Clan Jade Falcon, who were also using the disruption caused by the Jihad to annex a number of Lyran worlds.[11]
