Class Valiant

Affiliation Star Kingdom of Manticore
In Service 1902 – 1915 PD

HMS Valiant was the lead ship of the eponymous class of light cruisers of the Royal Manticoran Navy.

History Edit

The ship was commissioned in 1902 PD as the first of her class, marking a departure from typical Manticoran light cruiser design of the time. (Companion)

In 1915 PD, the Valiant was part of an escort of three ships of her class under the overall command of Captain Aivars Terekhov, who took it to an escort mission that brought the convoy to the Hyacinth System, where it was attacked by raiders of the People's Navy. In the following Battle of Hyacinth, all Manticoran escorts and all but two freighters were lost.

Valiant was the second of the Manticoran warships to be destroyed.[1] (SI1)
