Woodbine V - more commonly referred to simply as Woodbine - is the fifth planet in the Woodbine system and has seven moon's named Akina, Carbonvale, Galaga, Ocheusti, Otousti, Tomb Rock and Vastek Moon.[1][2]

Planetary History[edit]

Woodbine is located in the Woodbine PDZ, in the Draconis March. It serves as the headquarters for all AFFS operations in the Draconis Edgeward Combat Theater, and boasts a Combat center training RCTs in the region. Close to the Federated Suns/Outworlds Alliance border, Woodbine is the unofficial capital of the Outback region.

The planet itself boasts a decent educational system that trains many citizens to support the various mining and ore processing industries on the world. Citizens who aren't employed there are usually employed in one of the many military support industries that produce ammunition, supplies, uniforms, and other material for the AFFS. Though the educational system is adequate for these relatively low level tasks, it is a far cry from the level of education provided on New Avalon, New Ivaarsen, or Robinson. In fact, the production facilities on the world are far behind similar worlds in the Federated Suns.[1]

Though Woodbine has been involved in many conflicts over the centuries, the presence of an extensive sensor net that covers the system has provided plenty of warning and intelligence to the defending units.[1] The defending 3rd Lyran Regulars were destroyed on Woodbine early in the Jihad when the Word of Blake struck at the planet; with a total strength of two combined-arms companies, there was little the 3rd could do to resist.[6]

During the Jihad in 3079, it housed a Combat Training Center on the planet, in Recital City on the continent of Sjardijin, there trained Infantry, Battle Armor, Conventional Armor and Conventional Vehicle crews. [7]
