Planetary History[edit]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

The Twenty-sixth Lyran Guards landed on Engadin as a part of the final wave of attacks launched during Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG in late 3028.[46] Rather than managing a quick victory, the Twenty-sixth found the campaign for Engadin dragging on into 3029,[47] in part because the campaign began to go wrong from the beginning. Leutnant-Colonel Woodruff Patterson and the Twenty-sixth had anticipated finding the Fifth Sun Zhang Academy Cadre on Engadin,[21] the Fifth having been badly mauled on Moritz by the Eighth Donegal Guards RCT.[48] The initial landings went badly, with a lack of coordination on the part of the DropShip pilots left the 'Mech forces tens of kilometers away from their support elements. Things rapidly got worse when the St. Cyr Heavy Assault Group, battered from their defeat on Kandis at the hands of the Twenty-sixth, revealed their presence on Engadin—by attacking and capturing the Twenty-sixth's support equipment and personnel.[21]

The Twenty-sixth ran themselves ragged for a month attempting to chase down the St. Cyr HAG before the lull in combat operations, at which point Colonel Patterson requested relief or reinforcements. In May 3029, the LCAF responded by ordering him to capture Zurin Spaceport so that supplies and reinforcements could be brought in. Zurin Spaceport was the main Draconis Combine Admiralty aerospace base on Engadin, and when Patterson led his forces to attack the airfield the St. Cyr HAG suddenly found their roles reversed, intently pursuing the rapidly moving Twenty-sixth. By splitting his forces, Patterson managed to seize the airfield with his lighter 'Mechs while his heavier 'Mechs used the Flanders Swamp to block the advancing St. Cyr HAG forces.[21]

The St. Cyr HAG withdrew, giving the Twenty-sixth the opportunity to receive the infusion of supplies they needed, and the Twenty-sixth went on the offensive again, sparring with the St. Cyr HAG and attempting to seize the planetary capital city, Yonkers, from the defending Fifth Sun Zhang Academy Cadre - who were firing ammunition captured from the Twenty-sixth during the initial landings back at the Lyran forces. The Twenty-sixth made three unsuccessful attempts to capture Yonkers before the arrival of the Blackhearts mercenary command on Engadin in June; the Blackhearts launched an offensive of their own on Yonkers, using Long Tom Artillery to provide cover as they moved around the hillsides near Yonkers to attack the Sun Zhang cadets. After a two-hour battle in which the cadets fought bravely in their light 'Mechs the damage sustained on Moritz tipped the balance, and the cadets were forced to surrender. With no way to hold Yonkers, the St. Cyr HAG retreated from Engadin, leaving the planet in Lyran hands.[21]

According to the apocryphal campaign scenario Inselhüpfen from Wunderwelten magazine, part of the fighting between the Twenty-sixth Lyran Guards and the St. Cyr Heavy Assault Group actually took place on Engadin's small, water-rich moon Muddy which was described as strategically important and a source of water and oxygen. Most of the moon's surface is covered by water, and only one single small island, Draaken Island, is solid enough for DropShips to land upon while the swampy terrain precludes the use of 'Mechs heavier than medium weight class. The defenders primarily used a submarine operating from a secret base on Draaken Island, naval surface vessels, hovercraft, and jet ski infantry in what was essentially a maritime battle.

Clan Invasion[edit]

Starting in late August 3050, Engadin was invaded by Clan Wolf as part of the Fourth Wave of Operation REVIVAL. Star Colonel Ramon Sender led Trinary Assault and Supernovas Command and Second in what he bragged would be a quick and easy fight against the planet's defenders, the First and Third Engadin Home Defense Brigades. However, he had not counted on the brigades' liberal usage of inferno missiles, and the endless barrages caused much suffering at Timons Vale, Manor Valley, and the Bristle Cone Forest. Much to the Star Colonel's embarrassment it was not until early September that Engadin was finally conquered, and the planet would go on to serve as a supply depot in support of further Wolf Clan advances.[29]
