The Second Gahnian Civil War erupted in 1985 by a series of terrorist attacks by the newly formed and mobilized rebel resistance group known as the Gahnian Liberation Army. It is the chronological successor of the First Gahnian Civil War, which took place from 1978 to 1984.
In mid-1985, a series of terrorist attacks were executed by the Gahnian Liberation Army against the authoritarian Gahnian regime that turned to Communism under Soviette influence. Several weeks after the acts of terror, a full-scale battle took place outside of Sakunt, a major city in central Gahnia. After several more firefights between the rebels the regime's military, the Soviette Republics sent several battalions to help the government as well as shipments of weapons. However, Domi Concordia took notice and dispatched black operation commandos into Gahnia to subvert and undermine Soviette intervention, as well as encouraging further revolts and rebellion. The AACL (Aphrostan Anti-Communist League) also joined the fray in 1987 when they helped the Gahnian Liberation Army by providing them with more weaponry, ammunition, supplies, and manpower. The warlord known as Darbicus took notice to the cause and offered assistance, though this later drew controversy as many of Darbicus' infantry were child soldiers. In 1989, the USR officially withdrew its forces and ceased its presence in the war after severe socioeconomic backlash in Isteroxe. As a direct consequence to the Soviette withdrawal, the rebellion immediately won several major battles and campaigns, thus further diminishing the Gahnian regime's morale. The war officially ended in 1994, when the capital city of Gahnia, Uundaji, was successfully captured by the Gahnian Liberation Army and Darbicus' forces. Several years of small skirmishes and firefights were waged by remnants of the fallen regime, but the fight against the new Gahnian government was hopeless for the communists.
