Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

In 2795, following the appointment of Sandol Quinn as regent to Ilsa Liao, the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces launched an invasion of the Federated Suns intended to capture the politically-significant Chesterton system. Planned by Quinn, the operation was intended to take advantage of the AFFS' continuing focus on trying to resist the massive Draconis Combine invasion of the Federated Suns, which stood poised to capture New Avalon itself. Quinn's plan involved encircling Chesterton by taking the systems around it, using mercenary units for the initial invasions - predominantly or exclusively former Star League Defense Force commands that had been recruited by the Confederation - and following up with CCAF line regiments to secure the captured worlds. Whilst launching one or two planetary invasions aimed at systems around Chesterton, Quinn also had the CCAF copy tactics used by the Combine so effectively, leapfrogging over border systems to capture a number of systems further inside the Federated Suns to add pressure to the AFFS. Quinn's strategy worked well for several years; having captured Caselton and Mirach in the first wave, the Confederation had also invaded and secured the worlds of Demeter and Farwell by the time a planetary assault was launched against Sanilac in mid-2796. By June 2796 Sanilac was under Capellan control, allowing the invading forces to launch an assault against the nearby Sonnia system.[8]

The AFFS returned to liberate Sanilac in 2799, in one of a wave of uncoordinated attacks launched by AFFS units following news of the Kentares Massacre.[9]

Second Succession War[edit]

During the Second Succession War Sanilac was one of many planets devastated by the Draconis Combine's search and destroy missions. [33]
