History[edit]

The Hobart was a Union-class DropShip. Part of the Liberation Flotilla, it participated in the Word of Blake's attack on Terra on 28 February 3058 under the command of captain Precentor Trevor Sladen.

Together with the DropShips Knox, Azov, DeGrasse, Halland, Fife and Perry the Hobart formed Task Force Gold on approach, which was scheduled to land at La Paz before moving to secure the Com Guard base at Manaus. On this mission, the Hobart carried two Transgressor AC aerospace fighters.

They were intercepted by elements from the Com Guard Terran Defense Fleet (Charleston, Alexander Nikolayev, Jeanne D'Arc, Casablanca, Sawakaze, Trafalgar). Task Force Gold lost approximately fourty percent of its ships, primarily transport vessels. It is unknown if the Hobart survived the battle; in any case, its captain survived to tell the tale.[1]
