The defense of Concord was an engagement of the Human-Covenant War in 2551 between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant on the human colony planet of Concord.[1]



On December 5, 2551, during the UNSC's defense of Concord, Covenant activity was witnessed at Lethbridge Industrial's combat fields just outside of the city of Lethbridge.[2]

On December 6 at 0720Z MST as part of Operation: GYPSUM, Sergeant Sigrid Eklund and a group of UNSC Army Rangers managed to clear out the Caravelle province at the cost of two M9 Wolverines. They then prepared to redeploy to a nearby mass driver station which was being defended by dwindling militia forces. After the skirmish at the Caravelle province, Eklund contacted Commander Renna, informing them of the outcome of the battle and asking about the activity at the Lethbridge Combat Fields the previous day.[2]

Operation: SHARP ANGLE was ongoing elsewhere at roughly the same, while Operation: OFFSET EYE was unconfirmed to be happening.[2]


During the battle, several test models of the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor [GEN2] were utilized, albeit without their full combat suites. Notably, the VENATOR-class Mjolnir—manufactured by Concord's Lethbridge Industrial—gained prominence during the defense of Concord due to the armor's effectiveness in hand-to-hand and single-enemy combat.[1]


The engagement resulted in a victory for the UNSC, as Concord survived the Covenant War and remained inhabited after the war.[3]
