History[edit]

Clan Era[edit]

As at 3059 the Volga-class transport Provider was serving as the CWS Provider within the Clan Wolf touman and was acting either as an escort vessel between the worlds of the Clan Wolf Occupation Zone and the Clan Homeworlds or as a patrol vessel within the Homeworlds.[1]

Wars of Reaving[edit]

The Provider remained an active part of the Wolf touman for the next decade[2] but following the nuclear scouring of the Wolf capital world of Tamar in late 3070 by the Word of Blake the Provider was part of a trade between the Wolves and Clan Coyote.[3]

The Blakist attack caused the loss of the genetic repository that formed the basis of the entire Clan Wolf eugenics programme; determined to prevent this loss coming to light - and the resulting feeding frenzy amongst the other Clans it would doubtless provoke - Khan Vlad Ward initiated two major trades with the Coyotes; the first saw the Wolves gain the entire Coyote Omicron Galaxy and five Stars of merchant transport vessels to allow the Wolves to evacuate a large part of their remaining Warrior and Technician Castes from the Homeworlds, in exchange for all of the remaining Wolf enclaves in the Homeworlds. The second trade saw the Wolves trade five Stars of AeroSpace assets, the Provider and the Vincent Mk. 42-class corvette CWS Relentless Pursuit to the Coyotes in exchange for ten Coyote sibkos populated with those of minor Bloodnames or shared Bloodnames with the Wolves.[3]

Destruction?[edit]

Provider was not listed within the Coyote touman by 3085,[4] indicating that the ship was most likely destroyed or abandoned during the Wars of Reaving.
