Planetary Info[edit]

Kawich's soil is spread across ten large island continents in shallow sea basins. The soil itself isn't good for agriculture, but it is packed with petroleum, minerals, and metal ores that are extremely valuable to manufacturers. After the fall of the Star League the Federated Suns enjoyed the output from the world until the Republic of the Sphere. The only time Kawich wasn't in the Federated Suns was a brief time during the Third Succession War when Capellan Confederation controlled the world. During the Fourth Succession War, Kawach was one of the sites of Operation Ambush, where the AFFS lured several CCAF units to an early grave.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Succession Wars[edit]

On Kawich, elements of the Eridani Light Horse, 1st Davion Guards RCT, and 3rd Crucis Lancers RCT captured or destroyed elements from Warrior House Hiritsu, the 3rd Confederation Reserve Cavalry, Trimaldi's Secutors, and Laurel's Legion.[52] Fifty years later, people on Kawich refer to the remains of the destroyed 'Mechs and tanks as "Liao's Metal Tombstones".[1]

The Jihad[edit]

The Word of Blake launched a wave of attacks during the first two weeks of July 3069 that targeted the worlds of Bharat, Deneb Kaitos, Ingress, Kawich and Ruchbah. Kawich was one of the worlds to fall in the face of a conventional assault, and was incorporated into the Word of Blake Protectorate.[42]
