Destruction of the Oberon
A SC363B Gallius-class troop transport, the Oberon is depicted here under attack from several Lagunan atmo-interceptors during the first fateful invasion of Laguna 9. All hands were lost when the Oberon came under heavy attack from Lagunan ships, after sustaining a direct hit to the engines from the battleship Repulse. The Lagunan's tactics were simple, cause panic and chaos within the fleet with the disorientation weaponry and turn the Terran fourth and seventh fleets on themselves, then attack with their own interceptors and strike craft. The assault was enough to send the Terran fleets back to Petersen 3 after losing nearly half of their number.
