After the escape of the Sun Crusher and the destruction of one of her Star Destroyers, the Hydra, Daala led her remaining three vessels on a guerrilla campaign against the New Republic. The Manticore participated in combat actions against a New Republic colony on Dantooine and at the assault on the Mon Calamari homeworld of Dac. During that particular attack, Admiral Gial Ackbar remotely piloted the battlecruiser Startide—with assistance from attacking B-wing starfighters—into a collision with the Manticore, destroying it. All hands, including Brusc, were lost.
An Imperial I-class Star Destroyer stationed at the Maw Installation by Grand Moff Tarkin, the Manticore was under the command of Captain Brusc. It was destroyed in the attack on Mon Calamari when Admiral Gial Ackbar used the half-constructed star cruiser Startide to ram the ship.
