Planetary HistoryEdit

Fourth Succession warEdit

Shaula was captured in the opening wave of Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG, the major Lyran Commonwealth offensive of the Fourth Succession War,[18]

Clan InvasionEdit

During the fifth wave of Operation Revival, Clan Wolf's Delta Galaxy invaded the planet in December 3051. They were opposed by the survivors of the 1st Lyran Guards RCT, which had earlier been mauled by Clan Wolf on Maestu. Hauptmann General Jane Craigie was determined to avenge her earlier defeat and incorporated the local militia to replenish her ranks, even resorting to kidnapping when necessary. She determined the likely routes of advance the Wolves would take, set up ambush sites and planted Vibrabombs. Unfortunately she had not counted on Delta Galaxy's lighter and swifter 'Mechs; while they advanced along the predicted routes, they moved too fast for most of the planned ambushes to be attempted and were too light to set off the vibrabombs. Two Clusters were successfully ambushed at Kodak Springs by a battalion of Guard 'Mechs and a regiment of heavy armor, but the accuracy and maneuverability of the Wolves ensured their victory during that pitched battle. Other battles took place at Orcim Salt Flats and Rolyat Bridge before the Guards were finally defeated and forced to retreat, fleeing to Orkney.[43]
