Sitting on the border of the Combine and the Draconis March, Lima and its people still had close ties to the Federated Suns, with a good percentage of the population steadfastly anti-Combine. Because of that, the AFFS High Command knew the fight for the world would be easy — there were but a handful of true Combine supporters and the rest of the world’s population only wanted to be allowed to live their lives, an attitude shared by most border world peoples.
The one hitch in the plan happened when McGhee’s Cutthroats were delayed almost three weeks by drive problems on their JumpShip. Rather than wait for their ’Mech reinforcements, though, special forces teams launched their attacks, quickly neutralizing much of the Combine government. Some significant militia units did escape the initial strikes, though, and took to the field — ultimately taking control of the industrial Kijmegen Province. Once McGhee’s Cutthroats were on-planet, however, the few battalions of militia infantry were no match to the mercenaries and quickly folded.
Federated Suns Civil Assistance teams began to arrive on-world in late June, and by the end of the war regular trade was already flowing into and out of the Lima System. McGhee’s Cutthroats spent several months preparing for the worst during the Combine’s counterattack in July, August and September, though the DCMS ultimately never made a strike at Lima — at least for several more years (the DCMS would target Lima with raiding attacks in 3043 and 3046).
In short, Lima returned to the Federated Suns with little difficulty and almost no loss of life.
