PLANETARY DETAILS:
A world on the cooler-side of temperate conditions and with slightly lower than Terran gravity. Less than a quarter of Hanover's surface is covered with water and native vegetation tends to be primitive and easily replaced with transplanted crops and plant life. The planet has two continents, Niedersachsen and Sylvania, with the capital city on the former. Positioned north and south and connected by a mountain chain called the Worldspine Mountains that runs through both continents.

[3025] Given the fearful atmosphere that permeates even the highest strata of Kurita society, a company producing security systems and personal weapons should be prosperous. There are scores of such firms, the most successful being People's Protection. Based in the city of East Wexler, People's manufactures alarm systems, secure storage safes and rooms, surveillance equipment, surveillance equipment detectors, and a host of other security products for civilian use.

People's also produces small personal weapons, mostly bladed weapons, slug-throwing guns, and laser pistols. People's sells only to the civilian population, but their research and development department freely shares ideas with the military.

[3050] Clan Smoke Jaguar landed on Hanover in July 3050. Defending the world were the two 'Mech battalions of the Hanover Militia. At first the battle went well for the Militia; using supply caches hidden in the Worldspine Mountains, they were able to beat the Jaguars under-supplied Third Battle Supernova (Fifth Jaguar Regulars) to a standstill. After nearly nine days of stalemate, the Smoke Jaguar commander called down reinforcements and sent them to flank the Combine units.

The final battle took place in a blizzard and inflicted heavy casualties on both sides. After extracting a promise from the Smoke Jaguar commander to treat the militia fighters honorably, the Hanover Militia's commander surrendered.

[3059] Hanover was attacked during the second wave of Operation Bulldog by the Second Dieron Regulars, Second Sword of Light, Warrior House Dai Da Chi, and the Crater Cobras. The Jaguar's Seventeenth Garrison Cluster attempted to leave the world, but were mauled by the SLDF forces - barely two Trinaries of 'Mechs and meager Elemental and aerospace support managed to escape.

EMPLOYER SITUATION REPORT:
The first waves of the Star Bridge War have gone well for the Dominion and their Snow Raven allies. The Combine forces have fallen back and an entire supply convoy has been destroyed, slowing their responses. The initiative must be held onto as we move into Wave Three.

Beta Galaxy is striking deeper into the Combine and will assault the world of Hanover. Heavy resistance is expected and the Watch has indication the remaining defenders from Schuyler have fallen back to this world, reinforced by the First Genyosha Regiment.

The 12th Bear Guards (Growling Bears) will lead the assault on the world. You will secure the city of Cologne and the port facilities and airfield there for use as a staging base while the rest of Beta lands on a dry lake bed large enough to support their landing. The 12th will hold the city until relieved by the 332nd and 14th.

Once initial landings are complete, the 12th will guard the western flank of the drive on the capital city of Wexler. Heavy opposition is expected as the Genyosha will certainly not remain idle during this assault.

After Wexler has fallen, the 12th will be reassigned as needed for other targets on world.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:
1) Secure the city of Cologne on Hanover
2) Protect the west flank of the drive on Wexler

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:
1) Inflict as much damage as possible to the Genyosha
2) Support the rest of Beta Galaxy as the situation evolves
