Supreme Commander Rho 'Barutamee unconsciously clenched his fist as he reviewed the intelligence report. Human forces were probing his defences from every side, intent on finding some vulnerability to exploit. Under normal circumstances he would ignore their taunts, but it was clear this world was far more important to the humans than he had originally realized. In addition, a massive Ministry of Resolution fleet was on its way, and his artefact teams were bogged down on the surface. For the first time in decades, Rho tasted fear. If the fleet couldn't locate something of value soon, he would be forced to either evacuate and abandon many of his Zealots, or face interrogation by the Hierarchs for his impudence and apparent ineptitude.

Scenario Six: Left Jab is the sixth mission in the campaign of Halo: Fleet Battles.


The UNSC has concocted an audacious plan - Operation: UPPER CUT - to destroy the Long Night of Solace by seizing a Covenant Corvette, the Ardent Prayer, and using it to carry a sabotaged slipspace drive core near the supercarrier - detonating it close enough that the resulting rupture would cripple or destroy the massive vessel. Operation: LEFT JAB is a supporting mission to distract the Covenant, coordinated with the UNSC Savannah while it supported Noble Team's seizure of the Ardent Prayer.
