Description:

Originally designated as LC/T-2395 when discovered by Lyran Exploration scouts, the colonization of the planet did not start until late into 2640, primarily due to a lack of funding. After the “Long March” campaign, the planet was renamed in honor of Captain Calvin Loudon for his heroic actions on Nox in 2465, wherein he gave his life to save his entire command. Fort Loudon was in the process of development by the colonists when they discovered rare metals in the Jungle Mountains on the continent of Brunei.

Fort Loudon’s three continents are situated mostly in the equatorial regions of this very large planet. Tunisonda has the most arable land and is the largest of the three continents. The planet’s capital, Palos, was settled on the continent of Anderssen, where gold and platinum veins were discovered in the foothills of the Dover Mountains. Fort Loudon has been prized in the past for its location on the combine border and still is today as a staging post against the Clans. Fort Loudon was home to the Star League’s 123rd Infantry Division, stationed at the still operational Castle Brian, Fortress Loudon.

[3053] Clan Jade Falcon launched a raid against Fort Loudon in 3053, striking out against the Blue star Irregulars’ Twenty-First Rim Worlds regiment stationed there - apparently, the Clan’s warriors had heard of the Irregulars’ SLDF origins and wished to prove themselves against such worthy opponents. The Falcons first captured the regiment’s JumpShips, then proceeded to overwhelm the mercenaries in a prolonged assault. Only two shattered companies remained, hidden in the planet’s mountains, by the time a relief force arrived. The Jade Falcons pulled back to Quarrel convinced of their superiority.
