The capital of the Beta-Garmon Cluster, the planet is lined with fortress-cities around its equator. The greatest of these is Nyrcon, which serves as the command and control center of the entire Beta-Garmon Cluster. The city and its geostationary Star Fort known as The Anvil are also used as mustering points for Imperial forces. Beyond the cities is a vast wasteland given over to the Departmento Munitorum and Centurio Ordinatus for weapons testing while a graveyard of decommissioned vessels in orbit served as a firing range for the Imperialis Armada.[1]

During the Battle of Beta-Garmon Beta-Garmon II was home to the heaviest fighting including an infamous engagement where over a thousand titans clashed on both sides. The Imperial forces were led by Sanguinius himself while The Anvil was boarded by Azkaellon. However the entire engagement was revealed to be a trap by Horus to draw attention away from Beta-Garmon III, and the traitorous Warmaster detonated The Anvil and showered Beta-Garmon II in a devastating field of debris that largely decimated both sides.[2] After the battle the planet was claimed by the traitors but presumably reclaimed in the Great Scouring.
