Planetary History[edit]

Old Kentucky was recaptured by the Capellan Confederation during Operation Guerrero; the mercenary unit Barrett's Fusiliers fought for House Liao during the campaign, having been loaned to the CCAF by the Free Worlds League. It was on Old Kentucky that the new commanding officer of Barrett's Fusiliers, Nikita Barrett, proved himself a capable commander, having recently replaced his father who had died shortly before.[27][28]

In 3079, Old Kentucky is the site of one of the CCAF Duchy Regional Training Centers that trains vehicle crews and conventional infantry.[2]
