Planetary Info[edit]

Gei-Fu is a world suitable for human colonisation, with a breathable atmosphere, water and grasslands. It is infamous for its heavy annual rainfall.

One city is known, Yushui. The Nunya River passes nearby the Hsien Park in the city. Since the planetary leadership was to be executed here it is assumed that Yushui is the planetary capital.[citation needed]

Planetary History[edit]

Gei-Fu is the capital world of the Duchy of Gei-Fu in the Capella Commonality.

In 3051 (or possibly late 3050) the planetary director attempted to secede the world from the Capellan Confederation and join the nearby St. Ives Compact. However, all leaders of the Inner Sphere were gathering at Outreach at the time to discuss the Clan Invasion and the St. Ives military, who had no way to consult with their political leaders, refused to support the uprising on Gei-Fu as this would have amounted to an invasion of Capellan space.[citation needed]

Senior Colonel James Teng and WH Imarra House Master Ion Rush, caretakers of the Capellan interestes, sent WH Hiritsu to Gei-Fu to quell the uprising. The Warrior House vanquished the local militia (which included only one lance of light BattleMechs) and restored order in short order. A public execution of the planetary director and his supporters was prepared in Hsien Park in the Gei-Fu city of Yushui on 8. March, 3051. However, the ceremony was interrupted by the sole remaining militia 'Mech, a Stinger, which had managed to sneak into the park through the Nunya river in an attempt to kill Hiritsu House Master Virginia York who was present for the executions. She was saved by Aris Sung who also managed to capture the 'Mech.[citation needed]

The military offensive launched against the Confederation in 3068 by Duke George Hasek of the Capellan March of the Federated Suns hit Gei-Fu during the second wave of attacks. A four-regiment strong mercenary force led by the 4th and 21st Illician Rangers crushed the defending 3rd Capellan Defense Force, capturing Gei-Fu until the planet was subsequently liberated by Capellan counterattacks.[31] As a part of the initial invasion of Gei-Fu the Federated Freemen secured the massive Capolla Oil installation on Gei-Fu's northern continent, and Federated Suns salvage and recovery teams removed more than eighty million barrels of oil from the installation in three massive Mammoth-class DropShips.[32]

Gei-Fu is also the location of a Regional Training Center. After the Jihad, CCAF statistics indicate that Gei-Fu consistently has the highest percentage of enrollment of any RTC. As a result, many recruits are sent to other RTC's for training. The Gei-Fu RTC trains MechWarriors, Aerospace Fighter Pilots, combat vehicle crews, and conventional infantry forces. Several of the RTC's officers have petitioned the Strategios to rebuild the 3rd Capellan Defense Force, but until the losses of the Jihad have been made up, this is unlikely to occur.[1]
