Lion's Gate Spaceport
Attached to the Lion's Gate, which connects the Inner and Outer Palace complexes, the Lion's Gate Spaceport is the greatest transportation facility on the Throneworld. A massive structure, the Lion's Gate Spaceport goes into the upper atmosphere of Terra.[3b]
During the Siege of Terra the Lion's Gate and its adjacent Spaceport were the most heavily defended locations of the Imperial Palace.[3a] Despite this, during the siege, it fell to a World Eater and Khornate Titan assault led by Angron. However, later the Spaceport was reclaimed by the White Scars and 1st Terran Tank Division of the Imperial Army in a daring raid led by Jaghatai Khan. Today, the facility is still in use.
