The Leonidas led the 4th Fleet against the Lohengramm Fleet at the Battle of Astarte in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). With the 4th Fleet completely unprepared for Lohengramm's attack, the Leonidas was struck by Imperial fire, blowing a hole in the hull over the ship's bridge. Vice Admiral Pastolle was sucked into the vacuum of space before the Leonidas exploded completely. (Overture to a New War)
The Leonidas is very similar in design to the Leonidas II.

OVA/ONW appearance differences
The Leonidas appears slightly different in Overture to a New War in comparison to LOGH: 'In the Eternal Night'. Most prominently, the pennant numbers differ, as does the colour of the stripe on the ship's flanks. The shape of the dorsal hull leading towards the bow is also less aggressively canted, allowing for two additional port and starboard cannons. The OVA version of the Leonidas is identical in every way (except markings) to the Leonidas II. (Note that the Fleet File Collection Vol.8 covers the OVA Leonidas.)
Fleet File Collection
The Leonidas is included as a model in Fleet File Collection Vol.8.
