The flagship Beowulf (796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE))
|Purpose:||Flagship (Mittermeyer Fleet)|
The Beowulf was the flagship of Wolfgang Mittermeyer.
Flagship of the Mittermeyer Fleet, the Beowulf's first campaign was the counterattack against the Free Planets Alliance's invasion of Imperial space in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE) - engaging the 9th Fleet. It would go on to participate in the Battle of Amritsar (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)', 'Amritsar')
Resembling a standard Imperial battleship in layout, the Beowulf shares some design similarities with the Tristan, particularly the tapered shape of its forward hull. It features a lighter forward armament than the Tristan, mounting 30 cannons to the Tristan's 36.
