Planetary History[edit]

Antwerp is one of the worlds that form a part of the Deep Periphery nation known as the Hanseatic League.[2] It is also the site of the only military manufacturing plant in the Hanseatic League.[3]

In 3073[4] forces from Clan Ice Hellion raided Antwerp, which was the home base of Regional Defense Force 2; the superior Clan weaponry more than compensated for the superior numbers RDF 2 could field, and as a result while RDF 2 successfully drove the Ice Hellions off, the RDF took more than fifty percent casualties in the process. Despite the losses taken by RDF 2 the surviving personnel took great pride in having driven off the "Clan invaders".[5]
