The Varkan Campaign, also known as the Battle of Varkana, was the name of Allied operations in and around the Socialist Republic of Varkana during the Great Adonian War. It included campaigns fought across the Dalian Mountains, in Kastruneto, in the Iremian Sea, and in Varkana. Joint Allied Powers Headquarters (APHQ) was operationally responsible for all Allied lands forces in the Northern Illypnian theater, and it planned and commanded the Allied invasion of Svaneti in June 1942, followed in August 1942 by the invasion of the Varkan plains and the campaign on Varkan soil until the armistice of Senaki in September 1943.

The independent state of Armazia also suffered damage during the campaign due to its immediate proximity to Varkana.
