In October 1913 PD, the ship was one of the ships assigned to a reinforcement squadron commanded by the senior StateSec officer in the Shilo Sector, Major General Thornegrave, which had been sent to the recently recaptured Seabring System.
As with all units of General Thornegrave's squadron, Attila entered orbit of the planet Hades in the Cerberus System for a scheduled stop, not knowing that StateSec's prison planet had previously fallen to an uprising led by Admiral Honor Harrington of the Grayson Space Navy.
Attila was destroyed by the planetary defense systems after failing to obey Admiral Harrington's order to surrender. After her destruction, the rest of the squadron surrendered and eventually became the Elysian Space Navy. (HH8)
