Destruction of Covenant Base - 2641
As this was the first proper battle for the ship, the opposing numbers were fairly low, about 5,000 assorted troops. The Darkening sent in advance scouts first, Jackals and Skirmishers. After the base was prodded the main base for weakness. After the Scouts were finished, the Elites and Grunts went in, with Hunters providing cover. The battle was almost slaughter, the brute force up front with the Hunters, and the Elites and Grunts prying their way into the base.
After they gained access, the Elites retrieved as much information as they could, then the entire force departed, and then the base was bombarded by the Darkening and Seraphs.
Assistance in Liberation of Covenant-controlled World - 2641
A large fleet hung over a Covenant Planet, it contained many bases, which would hold troves of information. The information was found in the aforementioned battle. Each ship was assigned a major base to eliminate, the Assault Carriers were assigned the hardiest bases, the Darkening was no different. The Covenant fought bravely, but they still died, and the liberation was successful.
Assistance in quelling Insurrectionist uprisings - 2646
Innies were getting restless in UNSC territory, getting ready to attack a major UNSC base, but luckily, the Darkening was closeby when they received a distress call. They got close and sent in Banshees, Scarabs and Phantoms. The UNSC were grateful for the support, and offered medical support to wounded soldiers. After they left, the base was restored to working order.
Assistance in UNSC-Covenant Fleet Battle - 2649
The Covenant amassed a large fleet to attack a UNSC fleet in UNSC territory, The UNSC were slowly losing, so the Darkening flew in, and assisted by sending docking parties, and bombarding other ships. The Darkening itself was damaged, and landed on a nearby planet for repairs, it is still stationed there, repairs are almost finished.
