The Raid on the Hindenburg Shipyards was the first major space battle between the UED Expeditionary Fleet and the Third Reich Fleet, occuring in and around in the Hindenburg Shipyards over Equestria.
Based on the data gathered at Boralis on Braxis the UED selected their next objectives. Admiral Gerard DuGalle picked out the Hindenburg Shipyards. The yard was home to a number of Nazi German battlecruisers and the UED sought to commandeer this ships. Samir Duran warned that SS Command could typically reinforce its outlying bases within 16 hours. Although this information was useful, DuGalle did not fully trust whom he considered a "turncoat". As the attack progressed UED crews took control of a number of battlecruisers. As the ships moved to join the main fleet the expected counterattack by the Nazi fleet arrived led by Erich Raeder. Erich was surprised to himself facing soldiers from New Earth but nonetheless resolved to attack.
