Planetary History[edit]

New Valencia was a major food exporter during the Star League era. The destruction of JumpShips during the Succession Wars resulted in New Valencia's agriculture shifting to expensive boutique foods.[1]

First Succession War[edit]

In 2789 the Draconis Combine began a hugely successful invasion of the Federated Suns, with Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery units pouring across the border and conquering system after system while the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns desperately tried to mount a defense amidst mass confusion and conflicting orders exacerbated by the DCMS specifically targeting communications systems and JumpShips as priorities for destruction to disrupt communications. The first attempt to break the invasion was mustered by First Prince John Davion in 2788, and that attempt - Operation SOLAR SHIELD - was an expensive disaster. By the time Prince John's second plan had begun at the end of 2789, New Valencia was one of the worlds under Combine occupation.[38][10]

Prince John's second plan - a massive naval response under the operational command of Admiral Kenneth Jones - saw AFFS forces return to New Valencia in early 2790, having already struck in the Imbrial III, Kestrel, Saltural, Saunemin and Acoma systems. The AFFS battle group spent a week hunting down the Draconis Combine Admiralty ships in the system, including managing to capture the Sovetskii Soyuz-class heavy cruiser DCS Sahand, before moving on to rendezvous with the other half of his forces in the Cholame system.[10]

Third Succession War[edit]

In 3005 New Valencia's capital city was Raiteland. When Wolf's Dragoons was assigned New Valencia as their baseworld, they built a base camp north of the city.[39] In 3007 McCarron's Armored Cavalry raided the world to punish the Dragoons. The Big Mac destroyed Raiteland in the process.[40]

The Jihad[edit]

In April 3068 a combination of Word of Blake forces and mercenaries in their employ raided numerous worlds across the Inner Sphere, including New Valencia;[41] the Word of Blake struck again on the 12th of May 3075, and although a number of the Blakist's escaping transports were caught and destroyed by AFFS forces this time, this second raid successfully damaged the General Motors/Blackwell facilities on New Valencia.[42][43]
