Together with the DropShips Knox, Azov, Hobart, DeGrasse, Halland and Fife the Perry 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 Perry carried two Shilone aerospace fighters. It was the only vessel in the task force to have a veteran crew besides Halland; all other ships were considered regular.
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 Perry survived the battle.
