The Battle for Aquila Prime was between the Intergalactic Unification Republic and the Les Debutants Neo in 2185. It took place on Aquila Prime, the closest planet to the star, Aquila. The IUR were in the process of building high-tech torque factories for further railgun research, which would put them way ahead in terms of firepower than anyone else in the galaxy. It would let them accelerate particles to 9500 kilometers per hour, a speed unheard of by a projectile weapon.
The LDN amassed a fleet above Aquila, hanging on a dark system three parsecs away from Aquila. The IUR had two mobile starbases in the area, giant bases for temporary protection. Quickly, the LDN pulled in, and bombarded the IUR Basilisk, Vikri Tann's personal capital ship. Acting with haste, the IUR mobilized all units in the area, which consisted of 2,340,000 men and 600,000 ships, which dwarfed the Les Debutants Neo's ship force. However, the LDN managed to blast one of its main ships, a stolen USSEC Nuum class ship, past the main IUR fleet and wreak havoc on the weaker ships that were behind. Finally, the stolen Nuum landed a hit on the base on Aquila, destroying it and killing everybody inside. Afterwards, the IUR quickly decimated the LDN fleet, but they had sustained heavy losses.
