System Information
X:Y Coordinates 301.652 : 109.811[e]

The An Ting system was the location of at least one inhabited world and as at 3067 was located in the Matsuida Prefecture of the Galedon Military District of the Draconis Combine.[1]

System Description[edit]

The An Ting system was located near the Huan and Igualada systems.[1]

System History[edit]

The An Ting system was colonized at some point prior to the end of the Age of War.[2]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

As of 3027 the planetary capital of An Ting was Cerant.

An Ting has several (at least three) "lesser moons".[41] A continent called Hotei was mentioned to lie in the northern hemisphere.[42]

Succession Wars[edit]

An unreliable source[17] implies that An Ting was chosen for R&R by a House Davion unit in 3022, suggesting the planet was under Federated Suns control at the time. McKinnon's Raiders found a mercenary unit from the Capellan Confederation raiding a depot on the world and drove them off on 1 October 3022.[17]

An Ting was the garrison "homeworld" of Wolf's Dragoons during their employ with the Draconis Combine from 3023 until 3028. Hephaestus Station, the Dragoon space station, was destroyed over An Ting on 3 January 3028.[citation needed]

When Wolf's Dragoons found themselves suddenly fighting an intense and taxing shadow war against their own employer for the second time, Jaime Wolf enacted a contingency plan that had been developed after the experience with Anton Marik. In a suicide mission, a small group of dedicated Dragoon soldiers and technicians fought their way into a HPG compound in Cerant, An Ting, on the night of January 3, 3028, and sent a coded message to the scattered Dragoon forces, ordering them to withdraw and regroup on the ice planet Misery.

Four 7-man squads from the An Ting Civilian Guidance Corps, and eventually an elite Kurita Civilian "Volunteer" Squad and a Vulcan 'Mech, attempted to retake the HPG building without inflicting too much damage.[43]

The Jihad[edit]

On the 20th of April 3070, An Ting found itself to suddenly be the subject of an investigation by the leadership of the Draconis Combine; the reason for the sudden interest was the outbreak of a plague which appeared to be similar to the Curse of Galedon, a plague that had appeared on the world of Galedon V the previous year. By December it had been confirmed that the two plagues were one and the same, and the plague had become a rapidly-spreading epidemic on An Ting. The plague had arrived to the planet with the fleeing AFFS units. As with Galedon, the DCMS High Command placed An Ting under an immediate quarantine.[44] This wasn't enough to prevent panicked Combine citizens from trying to leave the world.[45] The plague on this world would see the destruction of the 2nd New Ivaarsen Chasseurs and the remnants of their mercenary support, the Blacklate Mentals, Brian's Bombers, Colstrup's Cavalliers and Weizer Volunteers[46], and also the 12th Ghost regiment.[47][48]
