Overview

Belis Corona has a vast conglomeration of orbital dockyards, where entire Battlefleets can be serviced. Munitions stockpiles are stored in armoured bunkers kilometres below the world's surface.[1]

The orbital dockyards of the world provide the Imperium with a contingent of the Imperial Guard. One of the Regiments, the Belis Corona 55th Regiment, fought in the campaign to rid Corianus of Tyranids.[2]

Following the destruction of Cadia in the 13th Black Crusade, Abaddon launched another assault on Belis Corona. Surviving Cadian Shock Troopers have been decisive in the world's defense.[4]
