The Brünhild (Japanese: ブリュンヒルト) was the flagship of Reinhard von Lohengramm.


Service history

The Brünhild was first observed as the supreme flagship of the Imperial Navy's expeditionary fleet at the Battle of Astarte in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). Commanding a fleet of 20,000 ships, the Brünhild led the destruction of the Free Planets Alliance's 4th Fleet and 6th Fleet before being forced into a stalemate with the 2nd Fleet under the temporary command of Commodore Yang Wen-li. (DNT: 'In the Eternal Night', 'The Battle of Astarte')

The Brünhild later served as the overall flagship of the combined Imperial fleets that launched the devastating counter-attack against the Alliance invasion force in October 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part One)', 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)', 'Amritsar')

Imperial Civil War

The Brünhild was again in overall command of Imperial forces against the rebellious Lippstadt Alliance in 797 UC (488 IC / 3597 CE), commanding Reinhard's combined fleet in numerous battles. (DNT: 'Bloodshed in Space', 'Tragedy')


The Brünhild's design was unique amongst all observed Imperial ships. With a gleaming white hull, virtually the entire dorsal hull leading toward the ship's propulsion systems was a single large transparency, under which various parts of the ship's structure could be observed. It was also unique amongst Imperial ships in that there are no obvious energy weapon emplacements visible on its hull. Rather, all of its observed energy weapons systems fired from beneath (and through) the transparency on the dorsal side. Nine launch bays for Walküre fighters were arranged on the dorsal hull. (DNT: 'In the Eternal Night')




Background information
