Battle of Two Suns, 1084

The final battle between Imperial and Outworld Coalition forces in the Fourth Frontier War. Losses on both sides were heavy, but the Imperium held the field and the Coalition was unable to continue its advance due to its lengthening supply lines. Had the battle gone the other way, the loss of both Yres ( Regina / Spinward Marches 1802) and Menorb ( Regina / Spinward Marches 1803) - the encounter occurring between those two locations - would have forced the evacuation of Efate ( Regina / Spinward Marches 1705) and meant the collapse of the entire coreward end of the Regina subsector.

One famous ship in the battle was the Battle Cruiser Allamu. A Kinunir-class vessel, the Allamu was caught in the van, and withstood over four hours of steady attack before suffering screen failure. Lost with all hands. On 117-1085, the Emperor personally memorialized the name Allamu, which will henceforth be assigned to dreadnought-class ships and above. To date, no ship bearing the name has been constructed.

The battlefield is still posted as a dangerous area, littered with debris, and avoided by interstellar transportation.
