The flagship Tristan (796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE))
|Purpose:||Flagship (Reuenthal Fleet)|
The Tristan (Japanese: トリスタン) was the flagship of Oskar von Reuenthal.
Flagship of the Reuenthal Fleet, the Tristan's first campaign was the counterattack against the Free Planets Alliance's invasion of Imperial space in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE) - engaging the 5th Fleet. (DNT: 'The Verge of Death (Part Two)')
Resembling a standard Imperial battleship in layout, the Tristan shares some design similarities with the Beowulf, particularly the tapered shape of its forward hull. It features a heavier forward armament than the Beowulf, mounting 36 cannons to the Beowulf's 30.
