Planetary History[edit]

Early History[edit]

Shortly after it was settled, Gan Singh became part of the Tikonov Union. When that organization became part of the Capellan Confederation, Gan Singh followed. Most of the land surface is devoted to agricultural endeavors, with the few larger cities located along the equator.[1]

Star League Era[edit]

During the Star League era, Gan Singh served as the headquarters for the XXIV Corps (Star League) of the Star League Defense Force.[34]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

Long a part of the Capellan Confederation, Gan Singh was captured by the Federated Suns during the Fourth Succession War. For the next thirty years its raw materials were shipped to factories in the Sarna March, Federated Suns, and Lyran Commonwealth. It was also noteworthy for the presence of the 1st FedCom RCT, the unit built around the regiment of 'Mechs Melissa Steiner gave Hanse Davion. The news agencies of both the Lyran Commonwealth and Federated Suns paid a great deal of attention to this unit, and the world that was its home. This resulted in a large tourism industry growing up while Gan Singh was part of the Sarna March.[1]

In 3042 House Marik probed the Sarna March defenses by attacking Gan Singh, but were defeated by the defenders who were led by Andrew Redburn.[35]

Operation Guerrero[edit]

After Operation Guerrero sundered the Federated Commonwealth, Gan Singh found itself alone. Taking a lesson from history, Gan Singh and Styk formed the Styk Commonality.[36] After the start of the Jihad Styk and several other worlds were integrated into the Word of Blake Protectorate, leading the planet's government to contact the Capellan Confederation for assistance.[2]

The Jihad[edit]

Once Gan Singh rejoined the Confederation, an economic revitalization occurred. Pharmaceutical companies in particular were intrigued by the presence of a special plant enzyme that showed promise in treating radiation burns.[37] The Word of Blake attacked Gan Singh during the first two weeks of December 3069, attempting to incorporate it into the Word of Blake Protectorate, but the defending forces were able to destroy or rout the attackers.[38]
