Planetary History[edit]


On the 20th of March 3074 mercenaries employed by the Circinus Federation or their Word of Blake allies launched a heavy raid on Trasjkis, part of a general increase in violence in the ongoing war between the Federation and the Marian Hegemony. Tasjkis was just one of several worlds hit, with the Circinians using the mercenaries to smash major sites of resistance before completing the planetary invasions with their own forces. On Trasjkis the mercenaries[25] - Grandin's Crusaders[26] - fought against forces from IV Legio.[25] The Crusaders dropped outside the planetary capital city - which the Marian Hegemony had renamed Nova Mediolanum - and made contact first with the various detachments IV Legio had set up in an effort to deter the local resistance. Unprepared for the sudden and unexpected arrival of an attacking force, the IV Legio detachments fell back to their temporary headquarters and called on reinforcements from elements of the Legion that had been detached on occupation duties. Those reinforcements attempted to assist, but were ambushed by battle armor squads from the Crusaders, who exploited the lack of experience the IV Legio MechWarriors had at fighting battle armor infantry, leaving the Marian forces flailing around while the bulk of the Crusaders 'Mechs struck at the Legion's headquarters. The Crusaders tore through a number of occupied buildings in an effort to achieve a level of surprise before attacking and destroying the IV Legio command center. A small number of security personnel attempted to attack the Crusaders, but were gunned down mercilessly by the mercenaries before the Crusaders went on to annihilate the Marian forces in the area. The Crusders then attacked the remaining IV Legio detachments with his 'Mechs, armour and infantry. When the Marians fell back to regroup Pierre Grandin disengaged his forces as his objective was complete, and the Crusaders lifted off from Trasjkis aboard the DropShip Tonnant even as a number of DropShips from the Circinus Federation arrived in orbit.[26]

The position of Trasjkis reported on this page in the Nearby Systems section is erroneous.[28] Trasjkis should be ~10 light years rimward of Illyria.
