The CSV Sawakaze was a Union-class DropShip with the Com Guard Terran Defense Fleet. Together with the DropShips Charleston, Alexander Nikolayev, Jeanne D'Arc, Casablanca and Trafalgar the Sawakaze went into battle against the Word of Blake's Liberation Flotilla when it attacked Terra on 28 February 3058, opposing Task Force Gold in particular. In this battle, the Sawakaze carried two Chippewa aerospace fighters.
Task Force Gold consisted of the DropShips Knox, Azov, Hobart, DeGrasse, Halland, Fife and Perry. The Com Guard vessels managed to destroy approximately fourty percent of Task Force Gold's ships, primarily transport vessels. It is unknown if the Sawakaze survived the battle; overall, the Word of Blake forces carried the day and Terra was conquered.
