The 2472 Coup D'état was a failed attempt to overthrow the leadership of the Unified Earth Government, orchestrated by several general officers of the UNSC Army and Marine Corps. It was carried out on 13 Septembre, 2472 by rebel military forces, with armed conflict between loyalists and revolutionaries continuing for seven months and sixteen days. The aftermath of the failed coup would see the UNSC's first military executions since the Interplanetary Wars, and the formal establishment of the United Rebel Front by plotting generals Howard Graves, Qiu Lin, and Heino Rüütel.
