Fourth Succession WarEdit

The Free Worlds League conquered Launam in October 3028, one of several systems captured during Operation DAGGER, the Free Worlds League Military Fourth Succession War offensive against the Lyran Commonwealth. Lacking a BattleMech regiment with which to mount a defense, Launam was easily captured.[15]
