The Arluna system was the location of at least one inhabited world and as at 3145 was located in the Bucklands Theater of the Lyran Commonwealth.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Arluna system is located near the Abushiri and Inarcs systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Arluna system was either colonised by the Rim Worlds Republic during the Age of War or had already been settled but became significant enough during this era to merit recording on maps by the Inner Sphere nations.[4][5]

Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

By the end of the Age of War, Arluna was a part of the Apollo Province of the Rim Worlds Republic.[4]

Civil war erupted in the Rim Worlds Republic in 2575, with the factions polarised around those loyal to First Consul Gregory Amaris and those loyal to the Rift Republican Army and the Rim Provisional Government.[6] The Star League eventually decided to intervene in the civil war in support of Gregory Amaris, and in 2579 assembled Task Force MAILED FIST to help secure Amaris' control over the Rim Worlds Republic. A multinational force headed by the Star League Defense Force, Task Force MAILED FIST was responsible for executing Operation MAILED FIST, the name given to the military intervention. the first wave of attacks focused on securing significant worlds near Apollo,[7] until a destructive raid on Alarion by the 4th Amaris Fusiliers in retaliation prompted the SLDF to alter its initial strategy for the campaign, the focus shifted to reducing Rim Worlds Army concentrations throughout the Republic and the capture of key worlds.[8]

In late 2584 the SLDF changed tactics again; a number of major RWA units had been destroyed or captured, and the focus for the campaign shifted to capturing worlds of strategic importance, but the campaign was slowed by the greatly increased resistance offered by the RWA and local civilian populations, prompted by atrocities performed by the Draconis Auxiliary Corps when they captured Nightwish in mid-2584. Despite facing significant morale problems and a high level of desertions because of the slow progress made and the heavy casualties being taken Operation MAILED FIST continued; the conquest of Arluna was one such example of a campaign that took longer than originally planned due to the level of resistance offered by the civilian population; General Nathan Isaacson assigned the Eighteenth Division from VI Corps to conquering Arluna in 2585, but the conquest took six months before the last insurrections were put down, despite the lack of any significant RWA units on the world at the time.[9][10]

Star League Era[edit]

Arluna was conquered by the Lyran Commonwealth during the 2773-2775 Republic-Commonwealth War.[11]
