Liberation of Korhall Edit
Iowa participated in a small fleet to re-colonize the planet. After receiving UNSC emergency coding, the fleet prepared for a surprise attack by Brute forces, culminating in a full retreat back into UNSC space, vowing to return in a transmission over the planet's E-Band. The warship was refitted with nuclear weapons and additional Archer Missile Pods.
The ship destroyed 2 Loyalist frigates and captured a cruiser. After the naval battle, the ship deployed ground forces onto the planet.
