Battlefleet Armageddon is the Imperial Navy's Battlefleet for the Armageddon Sector. It has been instrumental in the various wars for the Hive World of Armageddon.[1]

During the Third War for Armageddon, Battlefleet Armageddon under Admiral Parol found itself outnumbered by more then six to one by the Ork fleet of Warboss Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka.[2] Parol, however, knew that he would not be able to defeat a fleet of such sheer size in direct combat, even with the support of Adeptus Astartes vessels under the overall command of High Marshal Helbrecht. Instead, the combined fleet sought to delay the orks to allow as much time for the Imperial defenders on Armageddon to prepare as possible, after which they engaged in a fighting retreat from the Armageddon System. The fleet then led guerrilla actions against the greenskins for the rest of the war.[3a] Nonetheless, facing these odds, Battlefleet Armageddon was overwhelmed and suffered heavy losses, taking over a million casualties within the first few days of battle alone.[2][3b]
