Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

Horsham was the home of several Taurian Defense Force naval yards. In 2582 the Second Fleet arrived in the system and left the Horsham Nadir Shipyards a total wreck. There were shipyards in orbit around Horsham but the TDF defenders were able to render them useless before they were captured by the SLDF marines.

In April the Striker Brigade of the SLDF's XI Corps dropped on the world. In conjunction with AeroSpace Fighters based on the SLDF WarShips, they began taking production site after production site. The AeroSpace Fighters would pin the defenders in one place while the ground forces overran their defenses. This combined campaign lasted for four months; By September 2582 the Horsham system was pacified.[49]

The Jihad[edit]

The Taurian Concordat invaded Horsham in January 3075;[38][39] Horsham was one of a number of worlds attacked as part of an invasion of the Federated Suns after evidence implicated the Federated Suns as being responsible for the asteroid bombardment of Taurus in 3074.[39][50] The wave of Taurian attacks in January 3075 targetted Brusett, Horsham and Robsart, and both Robsart and Horsham fell quickly; the Taurian forces were defeated on Brusett.[38][39]
