"They hit us, we hit back."
―Sonny Corleone[src]

Sonny Corleone called Aldo Trapani to meeting with him and Jaggy Jovino at the compound, however when Trapani crossed the gate many cars carrying Cuneo soldiers disembarked and began to attack. The bloody battle ended with the defeat of the Cuneos. After the battle ends, Sonny sent Trapani to Lucy Mancini's apartment in Midtown to plan their next move.


When Trapani arrived at the apartment, Sonny revealed his plans to destroy the Cuneo distribution network, beginning with Caruso! in Hell's Kitchen. This eventually led to the takeover of Artie Manzanero's racket chain.

In revenge Cuneos conspired with the Straccis, Tattaglias and Barzinis to kill Sonny.
