The '''Battle of Yokosuka''' was an engagement in 961 in the [[Yokosuka]] system between forces loyal to the [[Showa Ascendancy]] and the [[Stellar Commonwealth]] against mercenaries hired by anti-monarchist elements opposed to the Ascendancy's overtures with the Commonwealth. The battle saw an end to the mercenary activity in the system and the Ascendancy's assimilation into the Commonwealth. ==Background== ''See: [[Showa Ascendancy]]'' By ==Order of Battle== ===Imperial Showa Navy=== First Fleet (Vice Admiral Todoroki Suguru) * First Battleship Squadron (Rear Admiral Kagayama Souma) ** First Battleship Division *** THU ''Yokosuka'' *** THU ''Nagano'' *** THU ''Ibaraki'' *** THU ''Iwate'' ** Second Battleship Division (Commodore Miyauchi Heihachirou) *** THU ''Chiba'' *** THU ''Kagawa'' *** THU ''Nara'' *** THU ''Shimane'' * First Battlecruiser Division (Commodore [[Higashiyama Nao]]) ** THU ''Kongou'' ** THU ''Hiei'' ** THU ''Kirishima'' ** THU ''Haruna'' * First Heavy Cruiser Squadron (Commodore Yazawa Takako) ** THU ''Atago'' ** THU ''Takao'' ** THU ''Shinfuji'' ** THU ''Tennouzan'' ** THU ''Ooeyama'' ** THU ''Akagiyama'' ** THU ''Kagayama'' ** THU ''Tsukuba'' * Second Heavy Cruiser Squadron (Commodore Shirafuji Kenji) * First Destroyer Flotilla (Commodore Koshigaya Jungorou) * First Frigate Flotilla (Junior Commodore Isuzu Jiro) * Second Frigate Flotilla (Fleet Captain Fujimori Renge) ===Commonwealth Defense Fleet=== Twenty-third Expeditionary Force (Rear Admiral Mikhail Arkadiovich di Vecchio) * Forty-Seventh Heavy Cruiser Division ** CNS ''Laurel'' ** CNS ''Dove'' ** CNS ''Peacebringer'' ** CNS ''Caslet'' ** CNS ''Foraker'' * 296th Destroyer Squadron (High Captain Haixiang Zheng-Bolivar) ** CNS Fang ** CNS Claw ** CNS Talon ** CNS Barb ** CNS Quill ** CNS Incisor ** CNS Cannon ** CNS Arquebus ===Kantai Hatanaka=== Commander: Marquis Hatanaka Kaede * Assault Group One (Admiral Sutezawa Shouji) ** First Battle Division *** Battleship ''Shogun'' (ex THU Wakayama) *** Battleship ''Daimyo'' (ex-THU Shiga) *** Battleship ''Samurai'' (ex-THU Mie) *** Battleship ''Kuge'' (ex-THU Hyougo) ** First Cruiser Squadron (Commodore Piter Welch) *** Heavy Cruiser ''Plunderin' Petey'' *** Heavy Cruiser ''Poison Blade'' *** Heavy Cruiser ''Venom'' *** Heavy Cruiser ''Pillager'' *** Heavy Cruiser ''Immolator'' *** Heavy Cruiser ''Jolly Roger'' ** Second Cruiser Squadron (Commodore Janice Filoni) *** Light Cruiser ''Skullcrusher'' *** Light Cruiser ''Firebrand'' *** Light Cruiser ''Hell Ari'' *** Light Cruiser ''Throatcutter'' *** Light Cruiser ''Lightning'' *** Light Cruiser ''Flash'' ** First Frigate Squadron (Line Captain Grzegorz Simonetti) *** Frigate ''Dash'' *** Frigate ''Bolter'' *** Frigate ''Island Breeze'' * Assault Group Two (Leader Michael van Jervalis) ==Course of Battle== ==Losses== ==Aftermath== Commodore Higashiyama was feted on her homeworld.
