The Wars of Reaving
In November 3069 the Steel Vipers initiated an assault on Ironhold as part of the Wars of Reaving. The entire Alpha Galaxy landed on the world after declaring the defenders dezgra. The Twelfth Talon and Zeta Solahma Clusters held out for a month before being destroyed.
Three years later, an unidentified force landed at Ironhold and shattered the defenders. This 3072 strike was the first open action made by The Society. The Steel Viper's Omicron Galaxy was totally destroyed. After-action reports indicate that Ironhold was a key world for The Society, housing much of their research.
In March of 3077 Clan Coyote's Zeta Galaxy's 69th Strike Cluster landed on Ironhold as part of the effort to eliminate the Society from Clan Space. Led by Zeta's Galaxy Commander, Noemi McKibben, the Cluster engaged Society forces on the planet, where the 69th Strike would raze the Society's Enclave, a facility which had contained number of genetically mutated sibkos, all of which were killed as soon they were discovered. The Cluster would end up attacking another hidden enclave in the Peregrine Mountains. This enclave would be the last stand for the Society, where their forces mounted a desperate and ultimately doomed counter assault. In the end the Coyote Cluster burned all resistance to ash.
