Unfortunately, the SLDF troops stationed on Nusakan during the Amaris Crisis did not reckon on an attack from within, though they fought hard and long, denying the Usurper's troops an easy victory. Two of the major fortifications, at Holden City and the planetary capital of Jobs City, both on the northern Katamoros continent, were destroyed after weeks of underground fighting that shook the nearby cities and towns. The third, however, at Fort Romas, held out for almost a year, becoming a rally point for the surviving SLDF troops as fighting spread across the planet.
Though gallant, this resistance ultimately forced Amaris's troops to resort to nuclear assaults to secure Nusakan, destroying not only Fort Romas, but also a large number of the planet's more heavily populated cities and industriplexes. In the Liberation, Nusakan was again pummeled as returning SLDF forces faced a pitched battle in orbit and on the ground. Two WarShips, the SLS Havana and the SLS Dularam, lie in ruins where they crashed on the northern continent, shot down by the planetary defense systems during the fighting.
By the time of the Star League's collapse, only twenty thousand or so people still lived on this battle-scarred planet, but since that time - and despite the predations of the Succession Wars - people and businesses have gradually returned to Nusakan. Cities have grown near both shipwrecks, named in honor of each one, and the city of Havana, in fact, is the present-day capital of this recovering world.
