Planetary HistoryEdit

Fourth Succession WarEdit

Kandis was one of the worlds attacked in the opening wave of Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG, the major Lyran Commonwealth offensive of the Fourth Succession War. Defending Kandis was a mercenary command in DCMS employ, the St. Cyr Heavy Assault Group, and when the Twenty-sixth Lyran Guards landed the resulting campaign involved a number of heavy 'Mech charges. The St. Cyr HAG withdrew from Kandis after their Second Battalion was caught on Icic and mauled by the Twenty-sixth.[20]

Clan InvasionEdit

Kandis was invaded by Clan Wolf in September 3050 during the Fourth Wave of Operation Revival. SaKhan Garth Radick led the Silver Keshik and Trinaries Command, Assault and Binary Elemental of the 352nd Assault Cluster against the surviving battalion of the Third Freemen along with the First and Second Kandis Mechanized Brigades. Having escaped from the disastrous loss of Rasalhague, the Freemen and militia units under the charismatic command of Major General Rhodes decided to avoid pitched battle and scattered across the main continent of Cess. For several days they successfully conducted hit-and-run attacks against the invaders until saKhan Garth Radick destroyed the defender's communication and command facilities. This was followed by a series of lightning raids which succeeded in capturing Rhodes at his headquarters, causing the resistance to collapse soon afterwards.[45]
