The Lovat System was one of the core systems of the Republic of Haven.
Star geography Edit
Located less than 50 light-years from the Haven System, Lovat had a G-6 primary and a number of planets, including Furnace, Forge, and Anvil. Of these, Forge was the system's only habitable world, orbiting its sun at seven light-minutes distance. (HH11)
Lovat was originally settled by the Aamodt Corporation, one of the huge industrial concerns which had helped build Haven's enormous wealth and power only to go down under the People's Republic.
The system governor in 1921 PD was Havard Ellefsen, a direct descendent of the Aamodt Coporation's founder. The system's industrial concerns had played a major role in the Republic's industrial renaissance since the economic reforms Rob S. Pierre had forced through and the restoration of the original Constitution.
The system's population of almost three billion was heavily involved in the Republic's naval construction programs. Though not one of the primary yard sites, its local industry was heavily committed to the construction of light attack craft and the newest light cruiser classes, as well as ammunition ships, personnel transports, cargo haulers, and repair ships.
In 1921 PD, the System was hit by the Royal Manticoran Navy's Eighth Fleet as part of Operation Sanskrit. In the following Battle of Lovat, the entire defense force and all of the system's stellar infrastructure was destroyed. (HH11)
