Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion of 3050[edit]

The system was invaded by Clan Jade Falcon during the Invasion of September-October of 3050. Part of its Fourth Wave, Zoetermeer was taken by Emerald Talon Naval Assault Star. The WarShips orbited the planet and forced the survivors of the 10th Donegal Guards RCT & Alpha Battalion of the 12th Star Guards to surrender or be bombarded.[6] The Falcons targeted the world because there were rumors of a Star League depot. No such depot was found though.[1]

Jihad[edit]

Zoetermeer was conquered by Clan Wolf during the 3060s, only to then be invaded again during the Jihad, when Clan Hell's Horses launched an invasion of the Clan Wolf holdings in the Inner Sphere in early 3071. Zoetermeer was invaded by the Hell's Horses between the 14th and 28th of August 3071, but the Hell's Horses invasion stalled along a line of worlds from Zoetermeer to Ferleiten.[7][8]

The Horses have declined to develop the world's infrastructure and industrial capacity beyond what the Wolves and Falcons put in place.[1]
