Battlefleet Solar is the Imperial Navy's Battlefleet for the Sector Solar and thus Terra, capital of the Imperium and birthplace of humanity. Battlefleet Solar is known as the mightiest fleet in the Imperium.
During the Horus Heresy, Battlefleet Solar was virtually wiped out by the Forces of Chaos under the command of Warmaster Horus. Battlefleet Solar would later see action during the Necron raid against Mars in M41 and in the closing years of the forty-first millennium was used to reinforce the desperate defense of Segmentum Obscurus during the Thirteenth Black Crusade.
