Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Waldorf was conquered by Clan Jade Falcon during the Third Wave of Operation REVIVAL in June 3050. Defending the planet against the invading Second Falcon Jaegers was the planet's only armed force, the Waldorff City Police Department. Despite consisting of only one company of infantry, two armored cars and an UrbanMech, the police gave a good showing of themselves: four Elementals were killed and an OmniMech was crippled during the fighting due to the police's intimate knowledge of the city, which allowed them to lead the Clan invaders into prepared ambushes before escaping through the city's sewer and storm drainage system. Their heroic efforts were all for nought though, and in the end most of the police were killed or captured and the central precinct house destroyed by the Jade Falcons.[5]

In November 3051, the planet was transferred from the Jade Falcons to the Steel Vipers, after an decision by IlKhan Ulric Kerensky himself. No fighting occured between the two Clans during this move, and the Triasch Keshik took command of the planet.[6]
