The Salamander (Japanese: サラマンドル) was the flagship of August Samuel Wahlen.
Flagship of the Wahlen Fleet, the Salamander's first campaign was the counterattack against the Free Planets Alliance's invasion of Imperial space in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE) - engaging and defeating the 3rd Fleet. It then rejoined with all of Fleet Admiral Lohengramm's forces in the Battle of Amritsar Starzone. In 797 UC (488 IC / 3597 CE) the Salamander led the Wahlen Fleet as part of the fleet of High Admiral Siegfried Kircheis during the Imperial Civil War, alongside the Lutz Fleet.

Like most Imperial flagships, the Salamander's design resembled a standard Imperial battleship in layout. The Salamander's most prominent design feature was a pair of large cannons on either side of its prow.
