Avenger agreed and Airaviper lead a force of about 6 hamerheads, 13 corvetts, 5 fighter squadrons, and 4 bomber squadrons against the massive sith fleet.

To everyone's surprise, Airaviper was slaughtering the sith. Ship to ship, station to station the sith's defences were crumbling. The sith were caught completely by surprise. Admiral Airaviper signaled General Avenger that the sith were caught by surprised and that most of their stations were destroyed. General Avenger came in with the bulk of the republic fleet and surronded the unknown sith lord's capital ship. Avenger concentrated his fire on the flagship until it cracked. As soon as the remaining sith forces saw their comanding sith lord's flagship destroyed, they retreated. Fondor's citizens found out of the sith defeat in space and revolted, they killed most of the sith forces gaurding the planet below.
