Following the coup by Black Dragon forces in December of 3067, most conflicts that occurred tended towards small raids and sniping incidents, with a few random but intense small unit actions. Upon the arrival of the supporting 40th Dieron Regulars, the Black Dragons reorganized their forces and began focusing on operations intended to reduce the effectiveness of the loyalist forces, located roughly four kilometers from the site of the underground nuclear blast that destroyed LAW City on Guthry Island.
18 July 3069
The battle was begun when the Black Dragons prematurely engaged a Word of Blake salvage team from the Ninth Division working in the ruins between the two opposing Draconis forces. Elements of Sathen's Snipers, no longer under contract to the Kokuryu-kai but to the Word of Blake, assisted in the salvage team's defense.
By the time the Black Dragons moved on from the first engagement, the loyalist forces of the 1st Genyosha were prepared for the assault and levied heavy casualties on the 6th Benjamin Regulars, who lost their executive officer.
