Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Tallmadge was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[13] In 2801 a mercenary force that included Leftenant Rachel Akron - an AFFS MechWarrior and veteran of Kentares - ambushed and destroyed a recon lance from the First Sword of Light on Tallmadge. Akron, a member of the Seventh Crucis Lancers, had fought as both a MechWarrior and an infanteer on Kentares, and learned during the recapture of the world by the AFFS that the infantry she had served with had been killed by the recon lance, led by Chu-i Sohoshi Oshita. She had demanded an immediate leave of absence to pursue the bounty offered by House Davion for the heads of Oshita and his lancemates, and during the battle on Tallmadge that saw Oshita's lance destroyed, she personally killed his technicians, storming the unprotected field hanger they were working from. Akron's vengeance included crushing many of the technicians to death under the feet of her Valkyrie.[48]

Tallmadge was liberated by the AFFS in 2815 as a part of the third major counteroffensive against the Draconis Combine, which began in 2811.[14]
