Planetary HistoryEdit

JihadEdit

Taygeta was one of the worlds hit by the CCAF as a part of Operation THUNDERSTRIKE, the Capellan counteroffensive prompted by Duke George Hasek's Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE. The CCAF hit Taygeta on the 9th of August 3069. The Capellans then struck at Taygeta again in the second weekend of September, and this time the CCAF units were able to ultimately force the defending AFFS forces to retreat to New Syrtis.[42] The fighting on New Syrtis would continue for months, but on the 7th of January 3070 Chancellor Sun-Tzu Liao called for a cease-fire which included those CCAF units engaged on Taygeta and New Syrtis. Although the Chancellor called for both the Federated Suns and Capellan Confederation to unite against the Word of Blake as a common enemy, the CCAF troops on New Syrtis and Taygeta staged fighting withdrawals from both words that inflicted a great deal of damage on each, prompting Duke George Hasek to order the AFFS to continue to fight and show no mercy to retreating Capellan units, an order that wouldn't be rescinded until after Hasek's death in March.[43]
