Operation Wooden Horse was a clandestine Mesan Alignment contingency plan that secretly implanted remote nuclear devices on the People's Navy in Exile warships in their employ. The devices were meant as an insurance policy to eliminate the ex-StateSec mercenaries and remove all evidence of Mesan involvement in their activities. After the planned victory of the battle in the Congo System, the nuclear warheads would have been detonated to remove the witnesses of the violation of the Eridani Edict. (CS2)
