The Imperial battleship Embla (Japanese: エムブラ) was the flagship of Vice Admiral Keit.


Service history

The Embla participated in the Second Battle of Tiamat as the flagship of the Keit Fleet. On 8 December 745 UC (436 IC / 3545 CE), the Embla and the rest of the Keit Fleet moved to intercept and attack the right flank of the Alliance's 4th Fleet, but was in turn attacked by the Alliance's 5th Fleet. After turning to face the 5th Fleet, the Embla was hit in the forward section of its hull. Vice Admiral Keit was heavily wounded and lost consciousness. As the vice commander of the Keit Fleet had already been killed, the Keit Fleet retreated in disarray. It is unknown whether the Embla survived the rest of the battle. (SL: 'The Death of a Hero: Chronicle of the Second Battle of Tiamat, Part II')


The Embla was indistinguishable from a standard Imperial battleship of that era. (SL: 'The Death of a Hero: Chronicle of the Second Battle of Tiamat, Part II')
