Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Tishomingo was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[13] Tishomingo was liberated by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns in 2811-12 as part of the third and final major AFFS counter-offensive of the First Succession War against the Draconis Combine.[14]

Second Succession War[edit]

By 2849 the Davion's counter-offensive had managed to push the DCMS troops back and in number of cases even capture Combine worlds. When Yoguchi Kurita read reports indicating the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns had chosen to target the Combine-held farming world of Tishomingo he rashly decided to personally lead the planet's defense.[49] [50]

Bringing with him only the elite 4th Sword of Light and three other lesser regiments, though the DCMS High Command did not consider them sufficient, Yoguchi was confident of success. Yoguchi was unaware however that food and water shortages on Federated Suns worlds near the Davion-Combine border had grown so severe that the AFFS invasion force targeting Tishomingo consisted of twenty regiments, four of which were BattleMech formations. Heavily outnumbered, the Combine defense quickly collapsed when a AFFS 'Mech battalion made a daring drop against Yoguchi's headquarters and forcing him to desperately flee into the surrounding heavy forests, his second-in-command convinced the Coordinator had been killed and reporting this back to Luthien. [49] [50]

Unaware Yoguchi had been on-world, after the Davion forces had secured the planet within a month after destroying the last Kurita 'Mech, the bulk of the AFFS invasion force moved on, leaving a single 'Mech regiment behind. Alive and very angry, Yoguchi quickly organized the civilian population to resist the Davion forces, Tishomingo's population fanatically giving up their lives to strike at the AFFS troops. Back on Luthien his sister Roweena Kurita eventually divined that the fanatical resistance of the people of Tishomingo likely indicated her brother had survived after all and organised a military campaign to rescue whoever was directing the guerrilla action against the Davion occupation. [49] [50]

Back on Tishomingo Yoguchi's luck ran out when a surprise Davion patrol discovered him when it swept through his forest hideaway. While he ultimately escaped from their grasp and fled to the city of Urado, the Davion troops had recognized him and focused their entire efforts on recapturing him. Warned of their ruler's imminent arrival, the military resistance in Urado sponsored a religious festival as a cover, the city swelling to twice its normal size as they set about arming the influx. When Yoguchi entered the city, the Davion garrison was quickly killed as Urado was transformed into an impromptu fortress. [49] [50]

Though the first attempts to take the Kurita stronghold failed, after seven days a battalion of Davion 'Mechs attacked the besieged city of Urado. Despite the courage and determination to protect their ruler resulted in ever more desperate and suicidal strikes, the Urado defensive lines quickly crumbled as the Davion 'Mechs pushed into the city convinced they would soon capture their prize. It was then that the rescue force sent by Roweena landed, the shock arrival of a major DCMS force convincing Davion forces to withdraw back to base and await reinforcements and allowing Yoguchi to escape off-world. In total more than three million Kurita citizens gave their lives fighting against the Davion occupation of Tishomingo, fifty thousand of which had died during the desperate defense of the Coordinator in Urado. Yoguchi would accord them the ultimate honor when he mentioned their courage in a speech. [49] [50]
