The 1st Battle for Ny Kristiansand was the longest and bloodiest battle of the New Swabian war, consisting of sieges, attrition warfare, and house-to-house fighting, it caused the deaths of over 20,000 soldiers and an unknown number of civilians. It marked the end of the fast-moving campaigns of the early war and was the closest either side came to attacking civilian targets as it also included a bombing campaign targeted at Neuymayer and at Ny Bergen.
Although the city itself fell quickly. the fighting lasted over a year as Maudlandic soldiers operating out of the Ny Kristainsand Air Complex and the Carl Gustav fortress held on for a yea.r being resupplied by air before they finally fell.
