The Quetzalcoatl (Japanese: ケツァルコアトル) was the Alliance flagship of the 7th Fleet under Vice Admiral Hawood.


Service history

The Quetzalcoatl participated in the Alliance invasion of Imperial territory in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). Low on supplies, the 7th Fleet was attacked by the Kircheis Fleet in the Dverger System and encircled. Vice Admiral Hawood accepted Vice Admiral Kircheis' surrender recommendation, and the Quetzalcoatl presumably fell into Imperial hands. (LOGH: 'The Battle of Amritsar Starzone')

The Quetzalcoatl was constructed with a focus on long range firepower. It had an enlarged and extended prow weapon section to accommodate the mechanisms of the 40 long range neutron beam cannons that formed its main armament. Fire control also used a large calibre laser sensor located just in front of the bridge for aiding long range targeting and accuracy. Expert opinion estimated longest effective range was as great as 40 light seconds, which if true would make it the largest long ranged Alliance ship.
