The Templar Infantry Force has fought and won millions of battles. The most famous battle was the first invasion of the planet of Xim in the year 2077. They are outnumbered by twenty to one. The Templar Infantry Force holds the lines against the Imperium. The battle would last for three years, tired and alone, the garrison would continue fighting with little hope for reinforcements. The planet’s garrison would be saved by aid from a nearby solar system. Wiping out the Imperium forces in the process. The planet would be in ruins and decay for a few decades. This victory would bring moral to the United Galaxy, and shame to the Imperium since the planet has a smooth entrance to Earth. The planet would be invaded by the Imperium and other empires to get an easy entrance to the main capital to end the empire. Because of its strategic importance and constant invasions from the other empires the planet being renamed into Armageddon.
