Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

In one of the final acts of Operation Revival's Fifth Wave, Lothan was invaded by the 328th Assault Cluster of Clan Wolf in April 3052. They were met in battle by the 2nd Kavalleri and 1st Lothan Brigade at Saldhana, though the heavy Clan OmniMechs far outmatched the lighter Kavalleri 'Mechs in both firepower and mobility and the defenders were forced to retreat when an assault Star punched through an infantry regiment on the right flank. The Kavalleri were again defeated at Tronsk when a Headhunter unit succeeded in destroying the regimental headquarters, forcing the unit to retreat. The regiment was finally defeated at Kandalaksha when they made the mistake of turning to fight in a valley with little cover from the punishing fire of the Clan 'Mechs. Just five companies of the Kavalleri survived to make their escape to Ueda.[39]
