Painting a picture of the events that transpired before the glassing of Phoenicia

The Battle

  • December 2546 - A Covenant force of 4 CCS Battlecruisers augmented with dozens of corvettes enter the Mediterranean System. UNSC local fleet forces, consisting of a single Marathon Class Cruiser and just Four Frigates and one ODP see the covenant coming and lie in wait.
  • January 2547 - Covenant Battlegroup enters within range of Phoenicia. A volley of the Local fleet destroys one cruiser and depletes the shields of another, the covenant fall back.
  • Mid January 2547 - Covenant Battlegroup attacks again with a new strategy. Boarding vessels and fighter screens are launched at the ODP and heavy cruiser. Meanwhile half of the enemy corvettes descend on the planets surface deploying troops. Planetary Archer Missile Silos are unsuccessful at causing any serious damage. Most Covenant ground troops land in and around Canaan City. Smaller forces are deployed around the planet in areas rich in titanium, further supporting the theory of covenants ability to scan for certain materials. The space battle is partially successful for the Covenant. ODP Jericho is crippled, repair efforts begin. Two Battlecruisers are destroyed leaving only one left. Covenant retreat out of MAC range, launching raids with corvettes intermediately. Local fleet now reduced to two frigates and a Marathon Class.
  • January-April 2547 - ¬†Fierce Fighting continues throughout the planet against Covenant Ground Forces. Phoenicias Army begins training militia to counteract low manpower concerns.
  • April 2547 - A battlegroup is finally put together from spare and refit ships. Rear Admiral Walker commands a battlegroup of 2 Halcyon Class Refit Cruisers and a squadron of a dozen frigates and destroyers. The 8th Marine Expeditionary Brigade embarks with Battlegroup Walker. Meanwhile, covenant ground forces surround Canaan City, the planets capital.
  • Late July 2547 - Battlegroup Walker arrives to the Mediterranean system and travels to Phoenicia on sublight within 2 days. Phoenicia's local fleet is absorbed into the battlegroup and prepare to engage the remaining covenant presence. 8th MEB prepares to disembark to assist army units all across the planet when a CAS Class Assault Carrier drops out of slipspace right next to Phoenicia just out of MAC range. 8th MEB makes a hasty embarkation and Battlegroup Walker creates a defensive line around the ODP Jericho which is 80 percent complete with repairs. Admiral Walker changes his CP to the ODP. Covenant Corvettes make another run to the planets surface just out of MAC Range. The CAS and CCS lie in wait just outside of MAC range. Admiral Walker sends a line of frigates commanded by Boxer to intercept and destroy Covenant Corvettes within planet atmosphere. 8th MEB Surrounds Canaan City on all sides and prepares to push in.
  • 8th MEB pushes into the city on all sides, relieving Army units and begins funneling out the civilian refugees still inside.
  • Early August - CAS Class and CCS Classes push into atmosphere to directly attack Canaan City, soon after begins to glass the city. Covenant reinforcement fleet drops out of orbit and begins to engage Walkers Battlegroup as they attempt to intercept the two vessels glassing the planet.
  • CAS Carrier returns to orbit to lead an attack on ODP Jericho and the remaining local fleet. Local fleet is destroyed, ODP Jericho is destroyed after being boarded and having it's groundside generator destroyed in a corvette attack.
  • As many possible civilians are evacuated into glassing shelters. The entire remnant of the 8th Marine Expeditionary Brigade is considered MIA.
  • August 5th 2547; all organized resistance on Phoenicia is considered MIA or KIA. All comms go black. Phoenicia is considered lost.
