Known Battles Edit
- Battle of Samax IV: Samax IV was an Agri World whose Human inhabitants were just above the Iron Age on a technological scale. During this period it was invaded by Orks. By the time the Imperial Hawks were able to respond to the distress call, the last of the Human survivors were holding out within the walled city of Mallax. The Imperial Hawks 4th Company broke the siege of Mallax and in less than a week the Orks were in retreat.
