The First Battle of Suurja was the initial conflict in what would ultimately prove to be a series of four separate battles between the forces of the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorians over a six-week period in 3,964 BBY. It was the first battle since the taking of Flashpoint Station four months earlier. Suurja—an agricultural world with a comparatively small population of 16 million inhabitants—possessed the ill fortune to have been located along the Jebble-Vanquo-Tarnith line, a hotly-disputed Outer Rim battlezone contested by both sides.

Although, by the time of the last battle there, the Mandalorians had been slowed in their drive of conquest within that region for well over a year, the enemy still managed to mount a formidable enough siege-front against the entrenched Republic naval groups commanded by Captain Saul Karath, and both sides eventually conceded the conflict to be a draw; the Republic forces withdrawing to nearby Tarnith Station.

The specific victor in this first battle remains unknown.
