Planetary HistoryEdit

Clan InvasionEdit

Operation RevivalEdit

Pinnacle was conquered in March 3050 by Clan Ghost Bear as part of the First Wave of Operation REVIVAL. The planet was defended by a light garrison force known as the Pinnacle Guardsmen, representing a single regiment of mechanized infantry. Against this foe was the 71st Assault Trinary, 140th Striker Cluster, which dispatched only its Alpha and Bravo Assault Stars in the attack. In spite of the numbers disparity the two Stars overran the Guardsmen's hardened positions within hours of landing, taking the planet in the name of the Ghost Bear Clan.[41]

The JihadEdit

In March 3076 Pinnacle was the third of four Ghost Bear Dominion worlds to be raided by Clan Ice Hellion stragglers after the failed Ice Hellion invasion of the Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone several years before.[31][32]
