The Battle of Hat Yai was one of the first battles of the Human-Covenant War, and the first engagement that saw the deployment of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers against Covenant ground forces.

Battle

The Covenant, after landing on the main continent of Hat Yai, killed most of the civilian population and established a base. The UNSC was quick to respond, and a hundred Orbital Drop Shock Troopers led by Major Sedavian were dropped near the base by the Destroyer UNSC Clearidas. Unfortunately, ten soldiers were picked off during insertion by Covenant Cruisers in low orbit, and two more were killed in landing accidents[3]. However, the ODSTs were able to regroup and take the Covenant base with no casualties. During this battle, the UNSC first encountered the Kig-yar Point Defense Gauntlet and developed strategies against it.

However, by the time the base was taken and the arrived, the situation in space had changed: Covenant reinforcements had arrived and the UNSC became severely outgunned. The ground forces were evacuated, Shiva-class Nuclear Missiles were dropped on the rest of the Covenant troops, and the UNSC fleet retreated, leaving Hat Yai to be glassed[4].
