|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)')
Imperial Civil War
The Beowulf served in Reinhard von Lohengramm's campaign against the Lippstadt League in the Imperial Civil War in 797 UC (488 IC / 3597 CE), including being at the forefront of the effort to capture Rentenberg Fortress and fighting against the main rebel forces outside of Geiersburg Fortress. (DNT: 'Bloodshed in Space', 'Tragedy')
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. Box-type missile launchers with multiple cells are mounted on the dorsal hull and can launch large volleys of missiles. (DNT: 'Tragedy')
