Planetary History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

During the Star League era, SLDF units would train in the deserts of Truth on a regular basis.[34]

Third Succession War[edit]

Capellan forces drawn from the Hussars and the Maskirovka led by Pavel Ridzik masqueraded as a rogue mercenary unit and raided Truth in 3020 and killed from between 3,000 - 50,000 religious members of Pan-Humanist group.[35] The world's population was devastated: the population was listed as only 3,000 in 3025.[1]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

Despite ComStar placing the Federated Suns under a communications interdiction after the invasion of Sarna in mid-3029, the Capellan Operations Command of the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns received enough positive reports from the fifth wave of Operation RAT to launch the sixth wave in the second week of August 3029. The decision to launch wave six was in part driven by contact from planetary governments in the unconquered region of the Sarna Commonality, indicating that the perceived threat of being annexed by the Free Worlds League was prompting a groundswell of opinion among those governments that being absorbed by the Federated Suns was a preferable alternative to being conquered by House Marik. The countless raids and invasions by the Free Worlds League Military over the centuries had embedded an intense hatred of House Marik among the planetary populations within the region, and confidence in the Capellan Confederation's ability to defend them was falling.[16]

Truth was one of the targets of the sixth wave of attacks, and was defended by just the planetary militia. The COC assigned the invasion of Truth to the elite Davion Heavy Guards Regimental Combat Team, and the militia initially fought well against the invaders. Unfortunately for the defenders, a lack of supplies eroded the militia's ability to keep fighting, and after two weeks the militia surrendered when it became clear that continued resistance was hopeless.[16]
