Emblem-important.svg Update Needed
This article needs to be updated with material from Handbook: House Kurita. Once this title clears the Moratorium period, or if it already has, please consider revisiting this article and updating it with the new material, removing this tag once all information has been added.
This article is undergoing revision as part of Project: Planets, a collaborative effort to improve BattleTechWiki's coverage of planets and systems. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can add your name to the list of volunteers.

This article has completed Phase 3 of the Overhaul effort.

This article is about the planet. For the Faslane-class WarShip, see Dover (Vessel).

Planetary InfoEdit

Dover is a world covered in high quality silica sands perfect for electronics manufacturing. The bright white sands are blinding to off-worlders, so many DropShips land, load, and take off without ever allowing a crewmember to leave. In addition the Siliane Sea in the center of the continent of Quartz is unique in that it possesses pure chemicals that are ideal for export to electronics manufacturing concerns throughout the District.[2]

The presence of the specific manufacturing concerns on Dover led to the creation of the Dover Institute for Higher Learning and the AeroSpace and Interstellar Institute Officer's School.[38]

Planetary HistoryEdit

JihadEdit

Intelligence reports from the Republic of the Sphere indicated that as at mid-3081 they had managed to trace the Combine mobile assembly sites as far as Dover. These immense construction ships had been built as an emergency measure by the Combine during the Jihad as a result of the damage being inflicted on the Combine's military industry by the Word of Blake, and represented a huge tactical advantage for the battered Draconis Combine over their neighbours.[40] In the wake of the Jihad new military factories were being constructed on Dover; while the construction was being undertaken under the strictest secrecy, the Republic of the Sphere managed to confirm that the new factories wouldn't be active until at least 3083.[41]
