HistoryEdit

Fall of DaegoEdit

Main Article: Fall of Daego 

The Daego Defense Fleet was caught by surprise on December 23, 2550, when a small portion of the Covenant Fleet of Steadfast Guard exited slipspace over Daego. During the ensuing battle, Fleet Admiral Mark Ridley ordered all ships to concentrate their fire on the leading Covenant vessel, a CCS-class battlecruiser, and managed to destroy it. However, the humans' victory was cut short when the rest of the Covenant fleet arrived shortly after and Fleet Master Tolo 'Zhekamee's assault carrier rammed Ridley's heavy cruiser, Last Sunrise, and destroyed it.

The remaining ships of the Defense Fleet were then taken out in mere minutes, as the Covenant fleet advanced towards Daego and deployed troops to the surface.
