The Vosloorus system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Regulan Fiefs.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Vosloorus system is located near the Cree and Katlehong systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Vosloorus system was settled at some point during or before the Age of War, and was a member of the Free Worlds League by the end of that era.[4][5]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Jihad[edit]

In early 3077 the First Regulan Hussars were deployed to Vosloorus by the Principality of Regulus, and immediately began a concerted and widespread public relations campaign to reassure the local population and win hearts and minds, working against a backdrop of trepidation and suspicion that the Hussars' presence would invariably bring conflict to the Regulan Free States.[22]

A lengthy but initially clean campaign for control of Vosloorus began on the 24th of May 3077, fought between forces from the Marik Commonwealth and the Principality of Regulus.[28] The Regulan campaign initially suffered from a lack of focus and unclear rules of engagement and objectives, which led to it nearly stalling when the 2nd Marik Militia deployed to Vosloorus.[29]

The nature of the campaign changed sharply on the 10th of September, when Regulan forces suddenly and mercilessly shattered the Marik Commonwealth forces;[28] the Fifth Marik Militia had only recently arrived on Vosloorus in place of the Second Marik Militia, and were completely unprepared for the savage intensity of the military action that faced them, a sign of the increasing belligerence on the part of the Hussars since Prince Titus Cameron-Jones began a large-scale expansion of the Hussars. With members of the Hussars such as Force Commander William Trulo claiming seven kills in the assault, it was little wonder that the Fifth Marik Militia were soon broken, but following the battle a number of lances from the survivors of the Fifth Marik Militia pledged their loyalty to the Hussars. Others wished to be repatriated to other states in the region - and not generally the Marik Commonwealth. Colonel Lord Ihsan Hunter of the Hussars took a conciliatory attitude towards these requests, repatriating two companies to the Duchy of Oriente and three lances or more of troops to the Duchy of Andurien. Hunter cited the need to maintain good relations with non-Commonwealth states in the region as the driving reason for his willingness to accede to the various requests.[30]
