The Sovetskii Soyuz-class heavy cruiser Damascus was a Star League Defense Force WarShip that survived the Hegemony Campaign to liberate Terra from the forces of Stefan Amaris, and subsequently followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus.
Languishing in mothballs for centuries, the Damascus was restored by Clan Cloud Cobra and returned to service as the CCS Damascus in the 3080s along with its sister ship, the CCS Budapest; both ships were reintroduced to service as a direct result of the losses the Cloud Cobras had taken during the Wars of Reaving. By 3085 the Damascus was one of only seven functioning Clan Cloud Cobra WarShips.
Forces from Clan Star Adder destroyed the Damascus in the Suda Bay system in 3086, having decided that it needed to be destroyed to protect the purity of the Homeworld Clans from Inner Sphere taint.
