Battleship

The battleship (Japanese: 戦艦) is the largest type of military vessel (besides designated flagships) that are depicted in the series.

Free Planets Alliance

The Alliance battleship was the backbone of the Free Planets Alliance fleet. (LOGH: 'The Battle of Amritsar Starzone')

The stark, utalitarian nature of the design is indicative of FPA martial ideology. The most famous of these ships is likely the Ulysses (No. 913-D). Some variations appear, like the Muh'wäse, with distinctive 'hammerhead' prow, as well as the Abai Geser, which was equipped with more antennae than the standard variant.

Background information

The series features slight differences in the design of Imperial battleships, where the lower and two upper engines sometimes appear shorter. It is not clear whether this is merely animation inconsistencies or actual changes in the ships' design.
