Planetary HistoryEdit

Fourth Succession WarEdit

Following the lull in major offensives in early 3029, a number of new offensives began as the Fourth Succession War entered its second year. The AFFS forces on the Capellan front did their best to rest and resupply during the lull, anticipating a return to combat operations; orders for the fifth wave of Operation RAT were received in late April, and large-scale invasions of the Capellan Confederation began again.[42] Stripped of JumpShips to form a command chain for Operation INTRUDERS COMMUNION, few of the front-line forces within the Sarna Commonality were able to respond to the fresh wave of attacks. The handful of regiments of poorly-trained reservists and volunteers who defended Menkib were unable to offer much resistance to the Fifth Crucis Lancers when they arrived, and Menkib was swiftly conquered.[20]
