The Battle of Camber was a conflict between UNSC and Covenant forces on and around the planet Camber.[1]

Background[edit]

Sometime after 2535, Camber's location was discovered by the Covenant. Thel 'Vadamee and his Fleet of Particular Justice managed to penetrate the planet's early warning perimeter without alerting UNSC forces. He began his ground and orbital assault before most of the planet was aware of the attack. Seventeen of 'Vadamee's ships bombarded key defensive positions, while 'Vadamee personally led an attack on the UNSC system headquarters. He first engaged the 3rd Battalion Reserves, who were caught completely unprepared. In a show of honor, 'Vadamee ordered his troops to wait for the soldiers to prepare to defend themselves before wiping out the entire battalion.

Aftermath[edit]

The Battle of Camber ended in a Covenant victory. The entire 3rd Battalion Reserves was wiped out along with the majority of Camber's population, leaving only 81,313 known survivors. 'Vadamee's conduct with the 3rd Battalion Reserves later became the first documented proof of Sangheili showing honor towards their human enemies.
