The Battle of Kholo was an attack by the Covenant Empire on the UEG colony world of Kholo in the year 2539.[4]

BackgroundEdit

The location of Kholo was obtained by an unnamed Sangheili Shipmaster from the incomplete data banks of a captured human freighter. Upon returning with the information to the High Council, the Shipmaster was ordered to take command of the Fleet of Righteous Vigilance and destroy Kholo, under the watchful eye of the Prophet of Conviction.[4]

The BattleEdit

Human resistance was light, with only a few small military vessels in orbit. These were overwhelmed and destroyed by the fleet's scoutships. When the main fleet arrived, ground forces were deployed to the surface, before being withdrawn after two days to clear the way for the orbital bombardment to follow. The Shipmaster leading the fleet was ordered by the Prophet of Conviction to manually control his carrier's energy projector and carve the Covenant glyph for "Faith" into the surface of the planet. Upon completion of the glyph, the rest of the fleet opened fire and completely glassed Kholo. The battle was an overwhelming Covenant victory with Kholo being glassed, killing a large number of civilians and UNSC personnel trapped on the planet.[4]

AftermathEdit

A CAA mining vessel, the CAA Heavy Burden, sustained major damage in the Battle of Kholo which condemned the ship to become pulled slowly by the gravitational forces of a nearby gas giant.[3]

In 2559, the Unnamed Sangheili Shipmaster would return to Kholo to contemplate his decisions on the planet.[4]
