The destroyer Hameln II (791 UC (482 IC / 3591 CE))

The Hameln II (Japanese: ハーメルンイII) was an Imperial destroyer which was part of Destroyer Squadron 237, and was ambushed by Alliance ships while on patrol in the Iserlohn Corridor in 791 UC (482 IC / 3591 CE). Despite being heavily damaged, the Hameln II managed to escape from the area under the leadership of Reinhard von Lohengramm and underwent repairs at Iserlohn Fortress.
The Hameln II was an earlier class of destroyer and had a larger less efficient engine section compared to the main destroyer class of 788 UC (479 IC / 3588 CE). The rear engine section had visual similarities to the even earlier destroyer class of 745 UC (436 IC / 3545 CE).
The name Hameln II is a reference to the German name for Hamelin, a city in central Germany.
Although the extra features from the DVD box set mentioned that the Hameln II had a crew of 25, there were at least 36 people on board the ship on screen, which is most likely a production error.
