The decimation on Magnus Horn took place sometime prior to 3 ABY, where the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry suffered heavy casualties on the terrestrial astronomical object Magnus Horn. After the decimation, the Alliance tried to reassign the surviving troopers to other units, but the 61st's captain, Micha Evon, fought to keep his soldiers together and to saved the company from obliteration.
In 3 ABY, after Evon and some of his officers were killed, the rebel soldier Hazram Namir compared the losses to the decimation on Magnus Horn and the massacre at the terrestrial world Asyrphus, both of which he viewed as a blow to the company. The decimation on Magnus Horn and Evon's actions in the wake of it were also brought up by Pol Andrissus, another trooper of the 61st, in a conversation during the captain's funeral.

Notes and references
- The section of Battlefront: Twilight Company where the decimation on Magnus Horn is mentioned is set twenty-two years after the Clone Wars, which ended in 19 BBY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. The mention must have therefore happened in 3 ABY, with the decimation on Magnus Horn occurring prior.
