Ork fleet attacks Convoy

Following the fall of Aerin the Imperial high command knew that it would only be a matter of time before fort Sparcos, the nearest base to Keprok and protector of the argi-worlds Alphe and Betor, would come under attack.The first signs of Orks in the system came on 1402.009M42, when a convoy of eight freight vessels found itself ambushed in the deep space of the Imperial base.

The cruisers Conquerer and Redoubtable, escorting the convoy, soon went into action against the Ork raiders, which consisted of a number of small escort vessels and a large Ork Kroozer. By the end of the engagement the Imperial vessels had destroyed about a dozen small ork escorts, and the Kroozer, for the loss of two Firestorm frigates and four of the eight transports. Conquerer took heavy damage in the engagement.
