As at November 3067 the Lola III-class destroyer Growler was a WarShip within the Clan Nova Cat touman and as such was serving the Second Star League as the SLS Growler. The Growler was deployed with the Nova Cat merchant fleet.
In 2990 the Nova Cats traded three of their Carrack-class merchant vessels with their holds full of supplies to Clan Star Adder in exchange for three Lola III-class destroyers. It is possible - but not certain - that the Growler was one of the Lola III-class ships acquired as a result of this trade.
