Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Outer Volta was conquered by Clan Smoke Jaguar during the Fifth Wave of Operation Revival in November 3051. Rather than put up a fight the planetary council chose to surrender before the Shroud Keshik's Alpha Star even landed.[30]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

Outer Volta was invaded in the third wave of Operation Bulldog by the Izanagi Warriors, Eighth Sword of Light, and the Com Guard Thirty-Ninth Division. The defending Beta Galaxy Command Trinary and First Jaguar Guards fought fiercely against the invaders, but to no avail.[31]
