After hearing the plans, The fleet commander aboard the Admiral Tsanev refused to make peace, believing the Prime Minister had sided with Osea, and ordered his fleet to destroy the Kestrel Fleet with the Prime Minister on board. The Pitomnik refused to do so and requested the fleet commander to stand down, only to be destroyed by the fleet. In response, three destroyers Gumrak, Chuda and Dub had to defect to the Kestrel Fleet, which Captain Anderson ordered his fleet to launch the Razgriz and protect the defectors by attacking the Yuke fleet. Halfway through the battle, the carrier Barbet arrived on scene with her fleet. Under orders from the Osean government or unaware that the Kestrel Fleet was operating under President Harling's command, the Barbet branded the Kestrel Fleet as traitors and elected to attack them and three defecting ships. Despite all these odds, the Razgriz ultimately emerged victorious and proved instrumental in the survival of Kestrel Fleet and the destruction of both rogue fleets, OFS Barbet among the ships being sunk during the battle.
