The Other War - Essex III
« on: 15 November 2020, 20:47:32 »
==Overview:==
        The Star League Essex II Class destroyer SLS Rondeau accompanied Aleksandr Kerensky during his Exodus coming under the control of Clan Mongoose after the Klondike Campaign. The Mongoose Naval Touman used the Rondeau as a member of the elite Shadow Naval Star that protected their capital system for much of their brief history. It was heavy damaged and disabled the wreck joining the other Warship wrecks that formed the Ghost Fleet around Circe III following the Smoke Jaguars final naval engagement with their rivals.

   All aspects of the destroyer have been improved, it has more guns, better armor, fighters, gunships, a Star of Elemental Marines, two Grav-Decks, a Lithium-Fusion battery, and a sophisticated command deck. Unfortunately factors such as the lack of a dropship collar and the limits of the Shanghai's architects prevented embarking a Trinary of Battlemechs that could be deployed like the Nightlord class transports.

        It along with most Clan vessels of the same type have been refitted with the Athena-3, allowing the vessel to operate with a skeleton crew of only 25. However, most of the time the system operates in a monitor mode, tracking shipboard functions without taking control of the systems. This was a useful advantage and Mick-Kreese Kindraa Leader Claude Goulet chose the CFM From the Ashes as his command ship. It was used to coordinate the Hellions evacuation from the Homeworlds and as a liaison vessel (hence the 1st Class quarters) by the Mandrills and Hellions.

   Both Essex IIIs, HS Moore's Honor and CFM From the Ashes were destroyed in the Wars of Sundering and Jihad era OPERATION:BLACKLIGHT during desperate assaults against battle stations orbiting Strana Mechty and Venus. The survivors of their clans honor the sacrifice of their Marines in these final historic operations.
