History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

All of the Concordat-class frigates to be produced were launched before the end of the Reunification War.[1] A number survived the War, despite the conquest of the various Periphery nations by the Star League Defense Force; seven of these vessels were still actively serving in either the Magistracy of Canopus or Taurian Concordat navies during the closing years of the League.[2]

One of the seven Concordats still in service was the MCS Fury;[3] the only Concordat to be in service with the Magistracy,[2] the Fury was refurbished shortly before the Amaris Civil War, and in April 2765 she was one of twenty-two WarShips serving in the Canopian navy.[3]

While the exact fate of the Fury is unknown, none of the Concordat-class frigates survived the First Succession War.[1]

Periphery Uprising[edit]

The Fury and the other WarShips within the Canopian fleet were destroyed during the Periphery Uprising by the Star League Defense Force.[4]

Notes[edit]

  • The destruction of the Periphery WarShip fleets during the uprising was noted by the author of First Succession War on the Catalyst forums and confirmed by a BattleTech Developer, although not in the Ask The Writers or Ask the Lead Developer forum, so this note is not definitive until confirmed elsewhere:
Yup. Only one WarShip operational in ALL of the Periphery. And it was a Concordat boat.

You're welcome.

Uprising losses. Pretty much all periphery fleets were annihilated by the SLDF.

  • Given the lack of any new WarShips apparently being constructed between the end of the Periphery Uprising in 2766 and the end of the First Succession War in 2821 it is likely, but not certain, that the Periphery nations had also lost the ability to manufacture new WarShips through the destruction or crippling of the relevant shipyards.
