Sabbat Worlds Crusade

Despite heavy Imperial resistance, the world was captured by Chaos forces midway through the Sabbat Worlds Crusade. This was a grievous loss for the Imperial Crusade Force as the advancing Chaos armies were now equipped with Urdeshi pattern weapons and vehicles. However, a fierce Imperial counter-offensive aimed at the world of Phantine managed to recapture Urdesh and stop the Chaos flanking maneuver that was aiming for the weak underbelly of the Imperial Crusade.[2]

Urdeshi Pattern Arms

Urdeshi Regiments

  • 50th Urdesh Regular[3]
  • Urdeshi 6th Light- Participated in the Liberation of Urdesh from Chaos forces.[Needs Citation]
  • Urdeshi 10th Storm Troop- Participated in the Liberation of Urdesh from Chaos forces.[Needs Citation]
  • Urdeshi 7th Storm Troop- Participated in the Liberation of Phantine alongside the Tanith First and Only, Krassian 6th, and Phantine Air Corp. The regiment was devastated during the Battle for Cirenholm due to a mixture of poor planning, bad luck, and the recklessness of their commanding officer, Colonel Zhyte. The regiment accounted for almost all Imperial losses during the battle, which resulted in a grave blow to their reputation and their removal from frontline action.[Needs Citation]
