Following the rescue of the Aurelian scientist held captive Terminus Island, Aurelia had gained vital information on the Gleipnir. As a result, preparation were made to liberate Santa Elva from Leasath's control.
Once Gryphus One had damaged the camouflage system beyond repair, the Gleipnir began focusing all its firepower on him. After destroying the SWBM launch ports, the Gleipnir's captain then ordered the crew to fire the Shock Cannon on the city as a last resort.
Gryphus One managed to stop the Gleipnir dead in its tracks and sank the airborne fortress into the Lenal River, miraculously avoiding the city.
With the loss of the Gleipnir, Leasath was forced to retreat from the western regions and begin assembling forces at Griswall.
