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 reinforce the assault and then 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; Tawas was conquered by the Fifteenth Dracon mercenary group in 2797, with the mercenaries securing the Capellan hold on the world with the destruction of the last ad hoc AFFS defenses in June.[9] In 2800 the AFFS returned to Tawas, as part of a wave of uncoordinated counter-attacks against occupying forces launched following news of the massacre conducted on Kentares IV by the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery.[10]
