Azov (Individual Overlord-class DropShip)
Together with the DropShips Knox, Hobart, DeGrasse, Halland, Fife and Perry the Azov formed Task Force Gold on approach, which was scheduled to land at La Paz before moving to secure the Com Guard base at Manaus. On this mission, the Azov carried two Lucifer, Ironsides and Lightning aerospace fighters each.
They were intercepted by elements from the Com Guard Terran Defense Fleet (Charleston, Alexander Nikolayev, Jeanne D'Arc, Casablanca, Sawakaze, Trafalgar). Task Force Gold lost approximately fourty percent of its ships, primarily transport vessels. It is unknown if the Azov survived the battle.
