Planetary History[edit]

The Jihad[edit]

During the Jihad the Capellan world of Mitchel was subjected to a hugely destructive raid by troops wearing AFFS colours. These allegedly Federated Suns attackers targeted the most populous industrial centers on Mitchel for their attacks, attacks which included detonating two nuclear weapons as airbursts over the two largest cities. Not only were the nukes targeted at the major population centres on Mitchel, but they had also been laced with cobalt, contaminating the area around the explosion - literally "salting the earth" - and decimating the population.[32]

Dark Age[edit]

Mitchel was captured by the AFFS in the second wave of the Victoria War. The planet was barely defended and fell to the Third Ceti Hussars and 22nd Avalon Hussars. [33] The Second McCarron's Armored Cavalry tried to retake the world but were driven off by the Davion garrison. As a parting shot, the MAC troops bombed the domes that protected the population from the lingering radiation from the Jihad attacks. Most of the population was evacuated and the planet was abandoned. [34]
