Political Affiliation[edit]

The MechWarrior: The BattleTech Role Playing Game lists Skandia still under Lyran Commonwealth control as of 3025, garrisoned by Barrett's Fusiliers. This implies the Draconis Combine conquered the world only in that year.[44]

Planetary Info[edit]

Skandia has four continents, Kythira, Pliny, Cimbri and Britannia.[1] The Ghost Bear Dominion also set up a regional headquarters and administrative center on this world in the late 3070s.[45] The Dominion made the decision to move the command and administrative center to Skandia as it was more centrally located than Orestes.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Skandia was invaded by the Bronze Keshik, 4th Battle and 16th Battle Clusters of Clan Wolf in February 3052 during the Fifth Wave of Operation Revival. Opposing them were the 3rd Drakøns, a KungsArmé regiment that had long harried Clan Wolf and whose destruction had been given top priority, supported by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Skandia Royal Militia Brigades. Bidding for the right to destroy the Drakøns, which would hopefully break the back of resistance in the Free Rasalhague Republic, was one of restrained fierceness which Galaxy Commander Mikel Furey had finally won. From the moment the Galaxy Commander and his forces made their landing they engaged in what was essentially one long running battle with the Drakøns, fighting them at such places as Biberist, Sumiswalk, Spiez and Moudon. This lasted for two entire weeks until the last Drakøn 'Mech was finally destroyed and the planet conquered.[46]
