Fourth Frontier War, 1082 to 1084

Fourth in the series of wars between the Outworld Coalition (Zhodani Consulate and certain Vargr states) and the Imperium. This was a short, inconclusive war fought primarily in the Jewell and Regina subsectors of the Spinward Marches. Initial Zhodani and Vargr attacks were stalled at the borders, and the war degenerated into a series of skirmishes plus much commerce raiding.

The final battle, the Battle of Two Suns (1084) was waged in the vicinity of Yres ( Regina / Spinward Marches 1802) and Menorb ( Regina / Spinward Marches 1803) and resulted in Imperial victory. The armistice was actually signed before instructions for the conduct of the war could arrive from Capital ( Core / Core 2118).

Note that the focus of the war - on skirmishes rather than on major fleet engagements - has led to the war being dubbed the False War.
