The Advanced Tactical Course was a course at the Royal Manticoran Naval Academy on Saganami Island that was taken so that officers could command larger vessels such as light cruisers.

The course was housed in the Advanced Tactical Course building, and was informally known as The Crusher. Very few officers were given the opportunity to wear the White Command Beret of a hyper-capable starship commander prior to taking the ATC. Failing to pass the ATC nearly always guaranteed that the officer would never again be assigned a hyper-capable command. (HH9)

Notable Instructors Edit

In 1900 PD, Admiral of the Green Raoul Courvosier was the instructor of the class. Honor Harrington took the course and graduated first in her class. (HH1)

In 1903 PD, Admiral Courvosier took a leave of absence to go on a diplomatic mission to the Protectorate of Grayson. Harrington thought he was more valuable teaching cadets than being a diplomat, to which Courvosier agreed. (HH2)

In 1914 PD, then-Commodore Honor Harrington was promoted to Admiral and appointed as Commandant of the Advanced Tactical Center while she recovered from her injuries suffered during the Battle of Cerberus. Rear Admiral Jackson Kriangsak served as her second-in-command. (HH9)
