Planetary History[edit]

If it wasn't for the vast abundance of raw materials located around the sole body of water on Indicass and the presence of a Duchy Regional Training Center Indicass wouldn't be an inhabited world.[1] Indicass was originally settled by Ceres Metals Industries and the company has invested a sizeable sum in ensuring that the population are comfortable, creating a lush forest known as the "Black Forest" around the capital city of Xin Singapore. The forest is a distinct contrast to the remainder of the planet, which is largely desert.[1]

Succession Wars[edit]

In 2905 the St. Ives Cheveau Legers were taking an R&R break on Indicass when they were surprised by King's Commandos, a mercenary unit employed by the Federated Suns. The Legers would launch their own raid in retaliation against Atlas three years later.[33]

In 3005 Indicass would be attacked again, this time by the Ceti Hussars. Defending Indicass on behalf of the COnfederation was Cochraine's Goliaths, one of the units within the St. Ives Armored Cavalry. The only unit in the CCAF to field the Goliath assault-class BattleMech, and Cochrane's unit quickly wiped out two mixed companies of Wolverine and Ostroc 'Mechs before the Ceti Hussars retreated.[34]

Capellan-St.Ives War[edit]

Indicass was the flashpoint of the Capellan-St. Ives War when after Sun-Tzu Liao, acting as First Lord of the Second Star League, deployed peacekeeping forces into the St. Ives Compact following an attempted assassination of the Chancellor by the Blackwind Lancers that nearly claimed the life of Isis Marik in September 3060. Various military units within the St. Ives Compact military refused to acknowledge the neutrality or authority of the peacekeeping forces, and after a number of small clashes between St. Ives units and peacekeeping units, CCAF units were moved in to support the peacekeepers. An open battle started between Star League and St. Ives forces on Indicass, but as the Confederation began annexing Compact worlds under the guise of protecting the population, the fight quickly devolved purely into battles between Confederation and Compact forces.[35]

Post-Jihad Era[edit]

The Duchy RTC on Indicass continues to offer training programmes in BattleMechs, Combat Vehicles and unarmored infantry. The RTC trains it's cadets in the inhospitable environments offered by the outlands on Indicass.[36]
