Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Holmsbu was conquered in March 3050 by Clan Ghost Bear as part of the First Wave of Operation REVIVAL. The 43rd Elemental Support Trinary of the 12th Bear Chevaliers was tasked with taking the planet, defended at the time by the 7th and 8th Corrugated Lancers, a pair of armored regiments supported by infantry. The defending Lancers confronted the Clanners at Redwood and Linden's Bluff, but were ill-prepared to face the Battle Armored Elementals. They were quickly defeated by the Ghost Bear warriors and surrendered.[41]

The Jihad[edit]

In March 3076 Holmsbu was the first of four Ghost Bear Dominion worlds to be raided by Clan Ice Hellion stragglers after the failed Ice Hellion invasion of the Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone several years before.[31][32]
