SILENT STORM

Seven days after the battle at Harvest, Admiral Cole as well as several others formulated Operation: SILENT STORM. The group predicted that the Covenant would likely attack Biko. With this, Task Force Yama would secretly waiting to counter-attack the Covenant when they got there. At the same time, Battle Group X-Ray would start harassing Covenant forces independently of Yama.[3]
