The Duke of Adabicci today announced that on 168-1107 a small Imperial expeditionary force carried out a military strike against targets on Bronze.
The strike was in retaliation for Sword World support of piracy in the Zaibon system, and to prevent a build-up of Sword World forces along the Imperial border.
The Imperial ship shot down three warships of the Sacnoth Navy, and went on to bombard military installations on Bronze itself. Targets included weapon caches, and an underground command center. There was no civilian collateral damage. The Imperial forces sustained minimal casualties and returned successfully.
The Sword World Embassy claims that the targets were civilian mining
installations and equipment stores, and denies that there were any Confederation
military ships insystem at the time.
