History

In 937.M41, a Chaos warband known as the Ravagers attacked Salomine. Underestimating the Tau defences, and thus being slowed down, an Imperial naval battlefleet had time to catch up with the warband. The warband was nearly wiped out (its remenants being finished off at Adumbria) by the combined firepower. In the end, however, the Tau's defences were weakened and the Imperial battlefleet had suffered little losses. It was then suggested that the planet was attacked by the battlefleet and now might currently belong to the Imperium.[1]
