Planetary HistoryEdit

Fourth Succession WarEdit

Following the speech given by First Prince Hanse Davion on the 16th of November 3029, the official day of thanks in the Federated Suns, contained a number of revelations including the creation of the St. Ives Compact and was taken by many as an open sign that the Fourth Succession War was close to ending.[10] The Armed Forces of the Federated Suns launched the Seventh Wave of Operation RAT shortly after, in a determined effort to secure as many systems as possible for an armistice was declared. The Seventh Wave capitalised on negotiations that had been conducted in secret between the Federated Suns and various planetary governments in the remnants of the Sarna Commonality who lacked defenses and were far more fearful of being annexed by the Free Worlds League, a state hated for centuries of raids and invasions, than they were the Federated Suns. In the last week of November the AFFS occupied thirteen systems, including Sarmaxa. The AFFS encountered little resistance, and relatively few troops were needed to provide a garrison to maintain calm.[4]

Operation GUERREROEdit

Sarmaxa was recaptured by a single company of Warrior House Hiritsu forces during the Liao-Marik offensive (Operation GUERRERO) in 3057. The planet was defended by only six 'Mechs (including a Quickdraw, a Crusader, an Archer, a Thunderbolt, and an Ostroc) piloted by the planet's militia.[citation needed]

GeographyEdit

Little is known about Sarmaxa beyond that it has grasslands and forests. A scorched area of the Pr'ret forest was mentioned to be possibly the result of an unguarded campfire or lightning, implying that the planet has a breathable atmosphere (or at least one with oxygen).[citation needed]
