Planetary History[edit]

Succession Wars[edit]

Orbisonia was attacked by a major Capellan assault in 2828, one of a number of actions that effectively marked the beginning of the Second Succession War. Under the command of Chancellor Ilsa Liao the CCAF forces landed en masse and attacked the defending AFFS forces, which were outgunned and outnumbered by the Capellans. The main Capellan forces consisted primarily of Marauder and Warhammer heavy 'Mechs and was soon threatening to overrun the main Federated Suns staging ground and overwhelm the defending forces.[43]

Fortunately for the defenders, the garrison was able to make good use of information provided by AFFS recon and intelligence assets - primarily Darter scout cars - to outmaneuvre and outsmart the attacking Capellan forces. After four days of combat the Capellan forces were retreating from Orbisonia when the AFFS troops acted on intelligence indicating that Chancellor Liao was leading the rearguard personally to launch an aimed strike that killed the Chancellor. Ilsa Liao was the first Chancellor of the Capellan Confederation to die on the battlefield.[43]
