Kaznejov is another sun-baked world. Only its modest ore deposits prompted colonization in the early 24th century by Russian miners. Since then, the populace has imported life-forms to make this world more habitable. During Star League days, settlers altered the weather with satellites, mellowing the climate to a peaceful, idyllic hum. These efforts to change the environment succeeded so well that the planetary government attracted many tourists with the slogan "The best planet mankind can build."
After the fall of the Star League, however, all efforts to maintain the delicate manmade environment of Kaznejov were forgotten in the fighting. Now, two of the three manmade oceans have dried up completely, leaving behind a desert of crystallized salts. Having fallen into disrepair long ago, the weather satellites work only sporadically, sometimes causing great storms that whip the growing deserts with wind and lightning.
The iron ore deposits, Kaznejov's only natural resource, were exhausted long ago. As there is nothing else of worth left here, the planet is losing its population. There has been talk of moving the prefecture capital from Gondovia on Kaznejov to Celeste City on nearby Waldheim. As the regimental headquarters of the 17th Galedon Regulars, Kaznejov frequently hosts skirmishes with Kurita units on the large barren deserts outside the military base.
To qualify for DEST, an individual must undergo an exhautive series of physical tests, including a two-week survival course under the burning heat of Kaznejoy's deserts and a course of training in pain resistance. Those that survive these assignments, must then complete a series of mental of ideological examinations to determine his or her suitability for DEST.
 During the War of 3039, General Goran Yuu entered the Kaznejov system early on 26 August. After his fighter squadrons cleared the zenith jump point, he dispatched three mixed regiments from his First Crucis Lancers and the First Albion Cadre to the capital world of the Kaznejov Prefecture. Faced with the Seventeenth Galedon Regulars, the AFFS troops fought hit-and-run attacks for two weeks, frustrating the Combine defenders and doing what damage they could to the military infrastructure before they left.
History records this as a relatively minor action in the war, but Yuu’s forces did manage to destroy the prefecture headquarters and even kill Tai-sho Fatima Kori, commander of the Kaznejov Prefecture, an action that ultimately allowed Major General Miller to hold out on Capra for so long. General Yuu and his forces returned to the Federated Suns via the Waldheim and Delacruz systems, again a move aimed at confusing the DCMS intelligence efforts.
