Before the official declaration of war a convoy of three freighters and two freighter-transports[1] was sent for Grendelsbane Station. The cargo was machine tools, shipyard mechs and remotes and over six thousand technicians and their families.[2] During a passage along some grav wave the convoy was ambushed by Havenite cruisers, hidden in a grav wave bubble. The RMN escort lost all its ships, but convoyed ships managed to escape. (HH3, CS3)
