Vessel Profile
Previous names Fire-Eater
Type WarShip
Class Potemkin


As at 3059 the Potemkin-class cruiser Fire-Eater was a WarShip within the Clan Fire Mandrill touman and was serving as the CFM Fire-Eater. The Fire-Eater was one of only seven WarShips in the Fire Mandrill touman at this point.[1] Following the Absorption of Kindraa Kline by Kindraa Mick-Kleese the Fire-Eater would serve in the naval forces of the new Kindraa Kline-Mick-Kleese alongside the Lola III-class destroyer CFM Rancor, although the Fire-Eater was renamed to the Jungle Heat by 3067.[2]

In the wake of the call to Reave all of the Bloodnames associated with the Invader clans issued by ilKhan Brett Andrews in December 3071, the site of various Blood Chapels on Strana Mechty - including the Kerensky Blood Chapel - became the site of a sprawling fratricidal conflict between all of the Clans. The fighting in and around the Blood Chapels ranged into the city of Katyusha as various Clans fought each other, with the conflict escalating steadily after the destruction of the Kerensky and Winson Blood Chapels. The peak of the conflict came when forces from Clan Fire Mandrill fared badly when attempting to seize the McKenna and Clearwater Blood Chapels, resulting in Star Colonel Abraxas Mick of the Fire Mandrills ordering the Jungle Heat to destroy the Chapels by orbital bombardment.[3]

The resulting orbital bombardment razed both Blood Chapels as well as the Ben-Shimon Blood Chapel, and as a side effect destroyed a Binary of Clan Star Adder forces and set several fires burning in Katyusha. The Star Adders and Clan Goliath Scorpion were outraged by the Fire Mandrill's actions, but it was the Sovetskii Soyuz-class heavy cruiser CSV Sanra Mercer and the Carrack-class transport CCS Solar Blaze that Reaved the Jungle Heat, destroying it completely.[3]


The ship is named the Fire-Eater on page 44 of Field Manual: Crusader Clans however on page 150 of the same book it is referred to as the Jungle Heat.
