The battle was so large that manoeuvres and proper tactics went out the window. The battle was relatively even until the one Swarm Hive Ship was destroyed by a crippled Apollo-class Frigate ploughing into its side. After this the Swarm fleet seemed to lack cohesion, though their colossal numbers still presented the Allegiance with a major challenge. The battle lasted for three days and after the smoke and debris had cleared, the Allegiance were victorious. The five Taskforces made up one quarter of 14th Fleet- the Taskforces sustained over 70% casualties.
The planet was bombarded into ruin from orbit by the surviving ships, destroying numerous Swarm hive colonies on the ground.
Following this battle, an additional Taskforce from 3rd Sector Fleet, 11th Fleet, arrived to reinforce the newly conquered planet. The HMS Marchestra also arrived in the system a few days later, but it left shortly after to assist the UNSC at the Battle of Jana.
