Battle of Camber


An orbital defense platform is destroyed during the opening attack in the Battle of Camber.




The Battle of Camber was an invasion of the colony world of Camber sometime between 2535 and 2552.  The battle is known for the Covenant Fleet of Particular Justice, led by Thel 'Vadamee, penetrating the planet's early warning perimeter undetected and laying waste to the UNSC forces stationed there.  The battle was a rout, with a total loss of all UNSC forces, a death toll of over 5 million, and the planet being glassed.



These events are depicted in the terminal videos of the video game Halo 2 Anniversary.
