Week 47 of World War Bee was on par with the sedate Week 46, with 18 total hostile actions reported. Delve and its environs were home to most of the action, although new areas of the Galaxy began to see action from the war.

There were four battles in week 47 that exceeded 20 billion ISK in cumulative, outside of the 1DQ1-A/T5ZI-S border skirmish battle report. Three were strategic victories for the Imperium, despite one of the fights being relatively costly for the defenders and the fourth being a third-party fight with Fraternity.
The three major theaters are the North (Fountain and the border with Aridia and Cloud Ring as well as western Delve), the South (the rest of Delve, Querious, and Period Basis), and the East (Paragon Soul, Catch, Stain, Immensea, and Esoteria).
THE NORTHERN THEATER
The Northern theater was relatively sedate for another week, with only low-grade brush battles.
THE EASTERN THEATER
Sunday began the week in the East with The Initiative and others getting into a brawl with Army of Mangoes in Esoteria, ultimately killing 29.9 billion ISK for 8.8 billion in losses. Init later lost a staging Azbel in Curse while AOM lost a Fortizar in Esoteria.
THE SOUTHERN THEATER
Sunday in the South, Goons lost a pair of Fortizars, while the border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 13 billion ISK for 9 billion in losses. Monday, the border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 12.2 billion ISK for 24.4 billion in losses. Tuesday, the Imperium saw off a pair of attempts on 3-DMQT, the first had them killing 52.6 billion ISK for 54.7 billion in losses. The second fight was far more brutal as PAPI forces fed a fleet of battleships into Imperium fighters while their blaster Harpies (or Blarpies) were also shredded by Imperium space superiority fighters. The final battle report showed the Imperium killed 113.3 billion ISK for 30 billion in losses. TEST forces also lost a Hel in Querious. The border skirmish battle report showed the Imperium killed 11.2 billion ISK for 15.9 billion in losses. Wednesday, the border skirmish showed the Imperium killed 18.7 billion ISK for 7 billion in losses.

Saturday, the week closed with the Imperium killing 14.8 billion ISK for 12.5 billion in losses.
