Bloodletter was serving as a part of the Diamond Shark Black Diamond naval star in 3070, and on the 20th of September of that year was in orbit above Strana Mechty with the other ships of the Black Diamond naval star when the new Clan Steel Viper flagship, the Leviathan Prime-class battleship CSV Perigard Zalman made its appearance. The Steel Vipers immediately attacked the Diamond Sharks, with the Perigard Zalman quickly destroying the Bloodletter and the Lola III-class destroyer CDS Predator in the first pass alone. As the Diamond Shark civilian vessels frantically jumped out of the Strana Mechty system the Perigard Zalman continued its attack, destroying two more Diamond Shark WarShips before the Fredasa-class corvette CDS Swift Strike managed to jump out of the system.
