Planetary History[edit]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

Hainfeld was one of the worlds invaded by the Lyran Commonwealth during Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG, the major Lyran Commonwealth offensive of the Fourth Succession War. The battle for Hainfeld was considered an important emotional victory for the LCAF, as Hainfeld had been a Lyran world prior to it's conquest by the Combine, and Hainfeld was a target of the follow-up exploitation phase that followed the first wave of attacks. The exploitation phase was initiated following orders from Archon Katrina Steiner on the 21st of October 3028,[18] and Hainfeld was invaded by Hansen's Roughriders.[43][44]

Clan Invasion[edit]

During the Fifth Wave of Operation Revival Hainfeld was conquered by Clan Wolf in December 3051. Involving the Green Keshik, Dornbeng and Nega Garrison Clusters, the invasion was meant to be a test for the normally under-appreciated freeborn and aging trueborn Clan warriors. At the time the planet was defended by the 2nd Freemen along with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Hainfeld Militia Brigades, each one composed of one armor and two mechanized infantry regiments, under the overall command of Överste Rhett Weaver. The defenders were arrayed around the capital Hainfeld Central and outnumbered the attackers, forcing Galaxy Commander Anton Fetladral to reconsider his earlier plan to take the planet. Taking notice of the city's sprawling, open parks and the lack of enemy aerospace cover, the Galaxy Commander had his forces perform a combat drop at night, landing directly inside the city. Unwilling to bring harm upon the city's inhabitants the 2nd Freemen skirmished only briefly, at Pancake Ridge, Heffer Vale and Quarter Ravine, before withdrawing to Carse.[45]
