News Article, Shide’Hennock Roar: Heartfire 81st, 4,853 A.C.
Fighting continues to escalate on the Imperial colony of Orison when, late last sixth day, the remainder of the 5th Fleet including ISS Arc Hammer, Implacable, Celestia and Reverent took the leap deep into the system and took the fight directly to Genokahandren forces. While the sum of the fighting is still being totaled, casualties on both sides are estimated to be in the thousands. The ISS Implacable was lost with all hands.
While this latest push to free Orison from Genokahandren control has once again ended in as stalemate, Lord Admiral Gaius Kline and the other officers of the 5th fleet are confident that the world will once again be reclaimed by the Empire by Flameheart’s end.
