The Battle of Kumang was a brief engagement between Task Group 10.2.8 of the Royal Manticoran Navy and elements of the Solarian League Navy in the Kumang System in August 1922 PD.

Prelude Edit

Dispatched in response to news of Mesan Alignment false flag operations in systems that bordered the Talbott Quadrant of the Star Empire of Manticore, Task Group 10.2.8 translated into the Kumang System and proceeded to engage the Solarian elements it encountered. (SI4)

Course of Battle Edit

Task Group 10.2.8 translated into the Kumang System and proceeded into the system behind a shell of Ghost Rider reconnaissance drones. The drones moved ahead of the task group and detected SLNS Harpist and the War Harvest-class destroyer SLNS Reaper in orbit of Chotěboř, the system's inhabited planet.

Despite having cold impeller nodes when the Manticoran task group entered the system, both Solarian warships were able to leave orbit in an attempt to evade their opponent. The attempt proved futile however as the Manticorans demonstrated their superior missile capabilities by launching a single missile at a range of more than thirty-six million kilometers and detonated the warning shot one hundred fifty thousand kilometers ahead Harpist.

The Solarian ships surrendered. (SI4)

Aftermath Edit

Both SLNS Harpist and SLNS Reaper were captured.

Office of Frontier Security System Administrator Luis Verner was deposed and local authority was transferred to the control of President Adam Šiml. (SI4)
