Planetary HistoryEdit

First Succession WarEdit

Harrow's Sun was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[8] Harrow's Sun was liberated by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns in 2811 as part of the third and final major AFFS counter-offensive of the First Succession War against the Draconis Combine.[9]

Third Succession WarEdit

Third Battle for Harrow's SunEdit

In 3002 the Combine launched another assault on the world with a task force that included the Eighth Sword of Light and Fourth Proserpina Hussars. Officially the third battle for Harrow's Sun, the invasion went poorly for the DCMS due to the meddling of Coordinator Hohiro Kurita. The DCMS was defeated despite having the advantage of numbers and one of the well-trained Sword of Light regiments. [10][11][12]

Fourth Battle for Harrow's SunEdit

The DCMS launched a new assault against Harrow's Sun in 3020.[13][14][15]
