|Class||Lung Wang P2|
The CNS Míng Liàng was a Lung Wang P2-class DropShip in service with the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces when, while the Capellan Confederation was mounting Operation CELESTIAL REWARD, it attempted to intimidate a JumpShip from the Spina Khanate of Clan Sea Fox into providing war supplies for the Capellan forces.
Harassment of Spina Khanate vessels was becoming increasingly common, and the Spina Khanate saKhan had taken steps to protect affiliated vessels as a result; in this instance, the target of the Míng Liàng's attentions was the JumpShip CSF Star Drifter. The Star Drifter was escorted at the time by the Nagasawa-class DropShip CSF Irolita. The Irolita was outmassed and outgunned by the Míng Liàng, but was far more maneuverable and heavily armored. The Irolita placed itself between the Star Driver and the Míng Liàng and issued a challenge; while the Míng Liàng's AeroSpace Fighters attacked the Irolita, the Irolita in turn evaded the sub-capital weapons mounted by the Míng Liàng and swiftly disabled her maneuvering drive.
With the Míng Liàng unable to maneuver, the Irolita was free to engage and destroy her AeroSpace Fighters. The captain of the Irolita then claimed the Míng Liàng as isorla, and the Star Drifter and her accompanying ships promptly left the system before other Capellan forces could respond.
