The Imperial battleship Bergelmir (Japanese: ベルゲルミル) was the flagship of Admiral Schrieter.


Service history

The Bergelmir participated in the Second Battle of Tiamat. During the closing stages of that battle, on 11 December (745 UC (436 IC / 3545 CE)), the Bergelmir was hit near its bridge. Admiral Schrieter continued to command from the damaged bridge, but the Bergelmir was hit again, killing Admiral Schrieter and presumably destroying the ship. (SL: 'The Death of a Hero: Chronicle of the Second Battle of Tiamat, Part II', 'A Thread from the Past')


The Bergelmir was similar to the standard Imperial battleship of its era, but was enlarged with greater weaponry and more engines. It mounted a total of 12 engines at its rear: 6 engines in 3 dual housings dorsally and 6 engines in one large ventral housing. It was very similar in outward appearance to the Diarium and the Audhumla, being distinguished by its double row of 3 secondary guns on its main hull. It and its sister ships may be predecessors to later Imperial flagship designs like the Wilhelmina. (SL: 'The Death of a Hero: Chronicle of the Second Battle of Tiamat, Part II')


Background information

Bergelmir is the name of a frost giant from Norse mythology.
