Planetary assault tactics were a crucial part of any attempt at planetary assault. According to Michael Unther, an expert on the subject, who once gave a lecture at the Duluur Sector Naval Academy, there were four important stages to any planetary assault which offered several strategic options depending on the specific situation:
- Approach: the initial approach to the planetary system, including strategies for dropping out of hyperspace.
- Orbit: the strategic placement of warships in orbit.
- Invasion: the ground battle for control of the planet; naval commanders were required to have insights into this aspect of planetary assault although it was not their responsibility.
- Control: the final stage consisted of maintaining control of the conquered planetary system.
