Two of these corporations, Dekirk Aerospace and Mitchell Vehicles, were primary contractors for the SLDF, their products included everything from conventional vehicles and aerospace fighters to BattleMechs and WarShips. The Star League even placed one of its rare orbital flight academies over Graham IV, to take advantage of prototype aerospace fighter designs coming out of the Dekirk Aerospace R&D facility in Dekirk City.
For these reasons, unfortunately, Amaris' forces were particularly brutal in their efforts to seize the planet, resorting to widespread nuclear attacks to obliterate any of the factories and cities they could not capture. Today, the surface of Graham IV is a post-nuclear wasteland of radioactive craters and demolished cities. Only a few cities are left, either because they were too small and remote to be worth a nuclear strike, or because they were built after the devastation.
These cities, located far from the ruins on the marginally habitable continents of Barvionne and Palothica, are largely maintained by mining interests and small manufacturing operations that continue to exploit the few remaining lodes of Graham IV's resources which can be safely harnessed. The city of Keystone, on the southern reaches of Palothica, features the planet's primary spaceport, a corporate trade center for the surviving planetary companies, and even the garrison command for the planetary militia. A pair of large space habitats, placed around the planet by the Free Worlds League, support a healthy share of the planetary population now. One of these, dubbed New Dekirk City, serves as the planet's official capital in the sky.
