Duke of York
|Duke of York|
In 2764 the McKenna-class battleship SLS Duke of York had served as the flagship of the SLDF Fifth Fleet under the command of Admiral Taro Marrkgrae for the five years. When the 52nd Line Squadron deployed to act as the Fifth Fleet's hammer - the core of the 52nd consisting of the Duke of York's sister vessel, the SLS Sevastopol, and a pair of Texas-class battleships - the Duke of York deployed alongside them, increasing the already considerable firepower deployed.
