Lawndale 12 is a Terran Dominion communications relay on the southern peninsula of Anselm. During the Brood War, it was used to receive data and beam it out to fleets deep in the Koprulu Sector. It was defended by a series of bunkers and trenches, as well as two siege tanks and a barracks.
At the Battle of Lawndale 12, a group of zerglings attempted to charge the relay in spite of overwhelming Dominion defenses. The zerglings were able to get into the trenches and engage the defending marines in close quarters. The Dominion was successful in repelling the zerg, but took casualties in the process.
