Task Force 14 was a naval detachment of the People's Navy organised and commanded by Vice Admiral Alexander Thurston to attack Grayson and Masada during the First Havenite-Manticoran War in 1907 PD.

Mission Edit

TF14 was formed to execute Operation Dagger, which followed from Operation Stalking Horse. The overall goal was to obtain an offensive victory against the Manticoran Alliance, in order to stiffen Havenite morale and to force the Alliance to divert forces from the frontlines to guard their rear. In order to do this, TF14 was to first attack the Yeltsin's Star System, where it would destroy the Grayson Space Navy and Grayson's orbtial infrastructure. Elements of the Task Force (Task Groups 14.2 and 14.3) would then destroy the Royal Manticoran Navy pickets in the Endicott System and deliver advanced weapons to the surface of Masada for use by insurgents.

Task Force 14 was largely destroyed in battle at the Fourth Battle of Yeltsin's Star and Task Groups 14.2 and 14.3 therefore did not attempt to reach Endicott. (HH5)

Strength Edit

Task Force 14 was made up of 36 battleships, 24 battlecruisers, 42 heavy cruisers, 38 light cruisers[1], and 42 destroyers. (HH5)
