The Abai Geser (Japanese: アバイ・ゲゼル) was the Alliance flagship of Rear Admiral Stokes, and part of the 11th Fleet.


Service history

The Abai Geser fought with the rest of the 11th Fleet for the National Salvation Military Council during the Alliance Civil War. When the 11th Fleet was ambushed by the Yang Fleet at the Battle of Doria Starzone, the forward contingent of the fleet was cut off from the rest of the fleet by the Yang Fleet squadron led by Commodore Nguyen Van Huu. The Abai Geser and the rest of the forward contingent then endured attacks from Commodore Dusty Attemborough's squadron for the rest of the battle. Refusing to surrender, the 11th Fleet — including the Abai Geser — was annihilated. (LOGH: 'The Battle of Doria Starzone, And...')


Though superficially resembling a standard Alliance battleship, the Abai Geser was longer, as well as taller (the latter by virtue of its much larger dorsal and ventral antenna arrays). It was easily distinguished from a standard battleship by the additional tower visible on the forward dorsal hull, which was reminiscent of other Alliance flagships.

In the aftermath of the Alliance defeats at the Battle of Astarte and the Battle of Amritsar, shipyards prioritized construction of standard battleships, cruisers, and destroyers over dedicated flagship classes. Constrained by limited resources, the Alliance decided to refit and modify existing battleships to fill the role of squadron flagships. (Fleet File Collection Vol.7)

The Abai Geser had a lengthened hull based on the standard Alliance battleship hull. For its role as a squadron flagship it had additional antennas situated around the bridge and additional FTL communication antennas mounted on the rear hull. Enlargement and modification of the engineering and thruster section resulted in a 10% increase in thruster output compared to the standard battleship. All these modifications added mass, and the technical limitations of modifying the existing thrusters placed an upper limit on the improvement of the thrust to mass ratio. (Fleet File Collection Vol.7)

For its main weapons, the ship mounted 8 large calibre long range beam cannons of the same type as those used on Ajax class flagships. These were good for long range combat but the ship could not sustain a high rate of fire, leading to some deliberation as to whether the weapons should be swapped out. (Fleet File Collection Vol.7)

The ventral side of the ship was the same as that of a standard battleship, with a total of 12 Spartanian fighters carried. Of these 12, 3 were the long range reconnaissance version. (Fleet File Collection Vol.7)
