Emblem-important.svg Update Needed
This article needs to be updated with material from Wolf's Dragoons (sourcebook). Once this title clears the Moratorium period, or if it already has, please consider revisiting this article and updating it with the new material, removing this tag once all information has been added.
This article is undergoing revision as part of Project: Planets, a collaborative effort to improve BattleTechWiki's coverage of planets and systems. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can add your name to the list of volunteers.

This article has completed Phase 2 of the Overhaul effort.

Planetary History[edit]

Hoff was an agricultural planet until it developed advanced industry prior to the Succession Wars. When the wars came the planetary industry was crippled, leaving it on a level equal to nineteenth century Terra.[1]

First Succession War[edit]

Hoff was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[14]

Third Succession War[edit]

In 3019 the New Avalon Institute of Science decided to place several research facilities on Hoff, particularly the Friden Aerospace Park that played a crucial role in the (re-)discovery of several technologies including the Double Heat Sinks and developed the Super Wasp and Super Griffin BattleMechs into prototype stage. The facility was sacked by the Black Widow Company during the employment of Wolf's Dragoons in the Draconis Combine.[1]

During the NAIS' introduction to Hoff the planet was ruled by Duke Bradley Cheel.[1]
