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 at a time 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; Ulan Batar was assaulted in 2797, with Blandford's Grenadiers - one of the regiments within the Capellan Hussars brigade - securing the planet under Confederation control in January the following year, when they dug the last of the insurgents resisting the invasion out of the foothills around the planetary capital city.[13]

Ulan Batar was one of several worlds the Confederation managed to capture and hold during the First Succession War, despite a heavy counter-attack by the Federated Suns[17][48] in 2809[16] after Chancellor Ilsa Liao offered to withdraw her claim to the title of First Lord of the Star League and to instead support Paul Davion's claim if the Federated Suns would return Chesterton to the Confederation.[17][48] The counter-attack ordered by Paul Davion saw the Third Crucis Lancers attack Ulan Batar while the Fifth Crucis Lancers attacked the nearby Farwell system, beginning two more years of conflicts in the region around Chesterton.[15] Ulan Batar held the dubious distinction of being the last world the Capellan Confederation managed to capture from the Federated Suns during the First Succession War.[49]
