Description:

One of the most serendipitous events of space colonization occurred with the discovery that Terran cows could be bred with a similar animal native to Turin to create a breed that was both fleshier and tastier than either. With Turin's seemingly endless plains of indigenous grasses, the planet could provide excellent pasturage for cattle. Oddly enough, the milk of these hybrids is indigestible by humans, and so the few dairies on Turin specialize entirely in cow's and goat's milk and cheese.

Drawing on some of the few Liao stallions remaining after the Succession Wars, this world has also become famous for horse breeding, rivaling the Eridani blood lines of a century ago.

A mountain range fronting on one of the planet's oceans provides home and cover for the 212th Flying Furies jump infantry regiment.

[3032] Expecting minimal resistance in their efforts to take Turin, in April 3032, Long’s Light Lancers were surprised to find their efforts to occupy the world opposed by Kamakura’s Hussars. Settling in for a drawn-out fight, the Canopian force had fought several small engagements against the Grenadiers when news arrived of another force arriving in system: the Hussar’s sister regiment, Ishara’s Grenadiers. Although both units were equal to the MAF unit, together they were a potent force, severely overmatching the Canopians.

With news of Drozan reaching them and seeming to confirm suspicious of a major Capellan counter-offensive, the Canopians broke contact with the Hussars and abandoned efforts to conquer Turin, withdrawing instead to Jacomarie. The Grenadiers were not willing to let the Canopians go without a fight, however, sending a contingent of fighters to harass the Fusiliers’ transports as they linked up with their JumpShips.
