Planetary Info[edit]

MacLeod's Land was one of the Taurian Concordat's most important systems. It was heavily populated, had a great deal of industry, and also supported a lot of agricultural concerns. It was also one of the first worlds outside the Hyades Cluster to join the Taurian Concordat.[41] MacLeod's Land has three continents: Connor, Ramirez, and Heather. The capital city is located on Heather.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

During the Reunification War MacLeod's Land was first invaded by the SLDF's First Fleet, which destroyed three hundred fireships, approximately sixty assault DropShips, and several orbital defense stations. After giving the Taurians thirty days to surrender, the First Fleet destroyed every military base on the world's surface with nuclear strikes. Then II Corps landed on the world and destroyed the Ninth Velites 'Mech regiment. First Fleet and II Corps then combined to destroy the world's cities. II Corps would surround each city and First Fleet would then use orbital bombardment to destroy it. II Corps guided the people who evacuated into refugee camps. Several times these refugees were used as cover for TDF units that deployed tactical nuclear weapons. The SLDF lost nearly a regiment's worth of troops to these nuclear strikes before the First Fleet destroyed the Taurian's stockpile of nuclear weapons.[41]

Continuing their plan of conquest, the SLDF forces used chemical agents to force the population out of the countryside. They joined the refugees from the destroyed cities in refugee camps. Despite the severe damage the TDF received, they continued to fight. The last two battles were particularly horrific, as the Taurians used human wave attacks to get close to the SLDF units and detonate improvised radiological weapons. These desperate attacks forced a few hundred SLDF soldiers into hospitals for treatment, but couldn't stop the conquest. MacLeod's Land fell to the Star League in November 2587.[41]
