Details

    This world was originally inhabited by a society that had attained tech level 5. During the Fourth Frontier War, it was garrisoned by Imperial Marines as an advanced base, including a major munitions store. In early 1084 all life on the planet, and its atmospheric envelope, was destroyed in the Maneuver of Ganulph. The Marine commander was posthumously court-martialled.
    The planet is now completely valueless and still highly radioactive.

Maneuver of Ganulf

Restricted Navel File

    In early 1084 during the Fourth Frontier War, Imperial forces assigned to the Egyrn subsector were drawn into a long series of skirmishes in the vicinity of Walei (0902) and Nabeth (1202). The reason for these became clear when a Zhodani task force arrived over Ganulf (1207) and overwhelmed the solitary guradship, the Light Cruiser Alchemda.
    The Imperial resupply base with its small marine garrison helf out for a short time, but eventually a spread of missiles penetrated a munitions storage silo, causing an immense nuclear explosion and sympathetic detonations in other storage ares. In the increasing convulsions that followed, Ganulf lost its thin atmospheric envelope and all life on the planet became extinct.
    Munitions at the base included certain experimental weapons, and the subsequent court of enquiry laid the blame on the logistics staff for inadequate storage safeguards.
