Service history

The Ostmark served as flagship of the Lippstadt League's 50,000 ship strong Littenheim Fleet during the Imperial Civil War in 797 UC (488 IC / 3597 CE). When the Littenheim Fleet was engaged by the Kircheis Fleet, Wahlen Fleet and Lutz Fleet in the Battle of Kyffhäuser, the Ostmark came under direct threat by a detachment of 800 ships led by High Admiral Siegfried Kircheis' flagship Barbarossa. Littenheim, fearing for his life, beat a hasty retreat to Garmisch Fortress, firing upon his own supply ships as he went. The Ostmark was presumably captured when Kircheis' troops seized the fortress after Littenheim's death. (DNT: 'Tragedy')

Design

The Ostmark was identical to the flagship Alvíss in design.
