|Affiliation:||Free Planets Alliance|
|Flag officer:||Vice Admiral Morton|

|Purpose:||Flagship (14th Fleet)|
|Status:||Destroyed in combat|
|Destroyed:||2 May 799 UC (1 NIC / 490 IC / 3599 CE)|
The Achilleus's first known battle was at the Battle of Rantemario in February 799 UC (1 NIC / 490 IC / 3599 CE). Though the 14th Fleet suffered grievous losses in that battle, the Achilleus survived and the remains of the 14th Fleet joined the Yang Fleet for the subsequent battles of the war. At the Battle of Vermilion, the Achilleus cooperated with the Attemborough Squadron in cutting off the Imperial line of retreat. However, on 2 May, when the Müller Fleet joined the battle, Morton's fleet suffered heavy losses, and the Achilleus itself was destroyed.

The Achilleus's service history is included in the Data Book: Mechanic & Seiyū Encyclopaedia, p. 129:
- October 794 UC (485 IC / 3594 CE) — Work completed at the Jamshid Central Shipyard
- 1 November 794 UC (485 IC / 3594 CE) — Inducted into the 6th Fleet

In the original release of 'The Battle of Vermilion (Part Two)', the Achilleus's pennant number 1401 — identifying it as the flagship of the 14th Fleet — is briefly shown as 1501 (the pennant number of the Diomedes) as it is destroyed. This was corrected in the DVD release.
A Production sketch of the Achilleus appears in the extra features of the DVD box set. Note that there is a continuity error with the sketch showing a pennant number of 1501, the number for Diomedes, despite the sketch being clearly labeled as that of the Achilleus.
