Vessel Profile
Type DropShip
Class Overlord


The Knox was an Overlord-class DropShip. Part of the Liberation Flotilla, it participated in the Word of Blake's attack on Terra on 28 February 3058.

Together with the DropShips Azov, Hobart, DeGrasse, Halland, Fife and Perry the Knox 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 Knox carried two Transit, Stingray and Corsair aerospace fighters each.

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 Knox survived the battle.[1]
