Planetary Info[edit]

Klathandu IV is a sparsely populated world in the Klathan system with little arable land or industry, described as arid and marginally habitable. The infrastructure of the world is very fragile. This planet was the scene of battle between the Black Widow Company and 3rd Guards, McKendrick's Company.[46]

Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Klathandu IV was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[12]

War of 3039[edit]

In the War of 3039 Klathandu IV was taken by the Seventh Crucis Lancers and the Second New Ivaarsen Chasseurs. Unlike most of the worlds targeted, the people of Klathandu IV overthrew the Draconis Combine government and welcomed the Federated Suns forces.[47] Ironically, when the Combine counterattacked, the people of Klathandu IV resisted the AFFS units efforts to create defensive areas. They simply didn't want war to come to their world. Unfortunately the DCMS had other ideas, and the Third Benjamin Regulars and Second Galedon Regulars arrived. The DCMS troops engaged the AFFS troops quickly, but the AFFS fought a defensive campaign. After three months of relentless combat, the DCMS units had lost three quarters of their strength and managed to turn the local population against them. Despite this, the world remained in Combine hands when the commander of the Crucis Lancers received orders to withdraw from the AFFS High Command.[48]
