Service history

Sister ship to Alfred Grillparzer's Eistla, the Ulfrun was first seen at the Battle of Marr-Adetta Starzone in 800 UC (2 NIC / 491 IC / 3600 CE). The Knappstein Fleet was the second fleet to be sent against Fleet Admiral Bewcock's forces - however the Ulfrun spent the majority of the battle slowly making its way through an Alliance minefield. (LOGH: 'The Battle of Marr-Adetta Starzone (Part One)')

The Knappstein Fleet was placed under Fleet Admiral Oskar von Reuenthal's command in Neue Land that same year. It participated in Reuenthal's rebellion, and its last battle was the Second Battle of Rantemario, where it was destroyed by fire from Vice Admiral Holzbauer's forces of the Mittermeyer Fleet, at 06:09, 29 November, 800 UC (2 NIC / 491 IC / 3600 CE). (LOGH: 'Live by the Sword...')
