The Battle of New Constantinople was a major engagement in the New Constantinople system between UNSC and Covenant forces that occurred some time in late 2536 or early 2537.

Vice Admiral Danforth Whitcomb distinguished himself in the battle and was awarded several decorations for his actions. Unfortunately, the battle was lost and the Covenant eventually glassed the planet. SPARTAN-III Alpha Company fought well in the engagement and were highly distinguished for their actions during the engagement [1]

Trivia

  • Constantinople, for which the system was named, was once the capital of the Roman Empire and its successor state, the Byzantine Empire.
