(1140 to 1141): Operation Skybolt

Description (Specifications)[edit]

After the decision to secure the Islands was reached, elements of the 19th, 74th and 128th fleets moved to forward bases like Tonnurad and assembled into two main battle groups: Task Forces Oliphant and Crocodile. The combined forces jumped off from Zuflucht (Reft 0921) and quickly overawed the decimated inhabitants of Serendip Belt (Reft 1323) into surrendering without a fight. The two groups stopped to wait for their supply trains; resupplied they moved into the bloodiest fight of the entire campaign: the pacification of New Colchis (Reft 1327).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

After a brutal six week battle, the two task forces parted, with Oliphant moving to take Joyeuse (Reft 1628), New Home (Reft 1925), (in what was another short but brutal fight), Colchis (Reft 2026) and Amondiage (Reft 2325). Crocodile overran the cluster of worlds adjacent to New Colchis, moved to take Topas (Reft 1522), Neubayern (Reft 1822), Sansterre (Reft 2322) and rejoined Oliphant to capture Amondiage. Skybolt continued for another six months total, as Neubayernian and New Colchisian soldiers on Elysee (Reft 1525) temporarily set aside their differences and attacked the small Regency Army and Marine Garrison assigned to patrol the world, and these forces broke up into guerilla units after being repulsed by Regency Marine reinforcements.
