The Leonidas (Japanese: レオニダス) was the Alliance flagship of the 4th Fleet under Vice Admiral Pastolle.


Service history

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 quickly destroyed, and Vice Admiral Pastolle was killed. (DNT: 'In the Eternal Night', 'The Battle of Astarte')


The Leonidas, like most Alliance flagships, was a modified version of the Alliance's standard battleship design. As with the majority of Alliance flagships, key distinguishing features were the four antennae protruding from the dorsal, ventral, port and starboard side of the rear hull. Additional armament emplacements protruded from both the port and starboard side of the upper-half of the vessel's prow. The Leonidas was visually identical to the 7th Fleet flagship, the Kukulkan.




Background information

Leonidas was a king of Sparta, and the leader of the 300 Spartans at the famous Battle of Thermopylae.
