Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

In 2789 the Draconis Combine began a hugely successful invasion of the Federated Suns, with Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery units pouring across the border and conquering system after system while the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns desperately tried to mount a defense amidst mass confusion and conflicting orders exacerbated by the DCMS specifically targeting communications systems and JumpShips as priorities for destruction to disrupt communications. The first attempt to break the invasion was mustered by First Prince John Davion in 2788, and that attempt - Operation SOLAR SHIELD - was an expensive disaster. By the time Prince John's second plan had begun at the end of 2789, the Dragon had advanced as far as conquering such far-flung Federated Suns worlds as Acoma, Batavia, Imbrial III, Kestrel and Saunemin.[36][8]

During the invasion of Imbrial III a mercenary unit contracted to the Combine known as the Longhorns - the former Amaris Empire Armed Forces/Rim Worlds Army 201st Republican Lancers[37] - had decided to defect to the Federated Suns, bringing valuable intelligence on the DCMS presence in the Imbrial system with them. Prince John's second plan - a massive naval response under the operational command of Admiral Kenneth Jones - saw a large naval task force target Imbrial III as their first target, striking in early 2790, attempting to catch the Draconis Combine Admiralty ships in the system before they had recovered from the initial battle to capture the planet. Although the task force only only stayed in the system for a week before moving on to the next target, the strike was successful, destroying four attack DropShips, two transport JumpShips and a pair of Congress-class frigates, the DCS Halland and DCS Stockholm.[8]

Imbrial III was liberated in 2804-05 during the first major AFFS counter-offensive of the First Succession War against the Draconis Combine.[11]
