Thraxa (Individual Pinto-class WarShip)

(Redirected from MCS Thraxa)
Vessel Profile
Type WarShip
Class Pinto


One of twenty Pinto-class corvettes to be on active service in the navy of the Magistracy of Canopus as at 2765,[1] the MCS Thraxa was one of three Pintos assigned to support the elite Chasseurs á Cheval brigade. The three surviving regiments of the brigade were highly active at this point in time, routinely engaging pirate forces within the Magistracy and also allegedly engaging in raids against the Free Worlds League under orders from the Magestrix. The Magistracy Armed Forces acknowledged both the need for the Canopian Light Horse regiments to constantly redeploy and the high profile of the regiments by assigning each regiment a Pinto in addition to their transport JumpShips; the Pinto assigned to the Second Canopian Light Horse was the Thraxa. Assigned to the First and Third Canopian Light Horse regiments were the Thraxa's sister ships MCS Royal Foxx and MCS Stiletto.[2]
