Vessel Profile
Type WarShip
Class Texas


In 3050, Clan Smoke Jaguar's Beta Galaxy’s flagship was the Veiled Huntress, and her class was not specified at this point.[1] She participated in the Turtle Bay Massacre.[2] One picture published of the Turtle Bay attack shows two ships firing against the city.[3] These ships are an Essex class destroyer and a Vincent Mk. 42 class corvette. Two DropShips are also pictured, as neither the Essex nor the Vincent carry DropShips other JumpShips or WarShips must have been in-system. The use of multiple WarShips in this action was attested by Anastasius Focht in 3052.[4] The Essex-class ship had previously been identified as the Sabre Cat. It is unlikely that the Vincent is the Veiled Huntress as she is too small to act as a flagship.

A Texas-class WarShip was reported in the Jaguar Occupation Zone in 3050-51.[5] It is possible that the Jaguars controlled a Texas. Seven vessels of this class survived the Exodus, however two were later destroyed during the Exodus Civil War,[6] and all of these were accounted for. Four of these belong to Clan Coyote[7], Clan Snow Raven[8], Clan Jade Falcon[9] and Clan Wolf[10]. The fifth is the notorious Prinz Eugen, now used as a prison facility. [11] If the Jaguars did have a Texas it would have to have been a newly built one or a refurbishment of one of the two derelicts left after the Exodus Civil War.

The Sabre Cat was misidentified in one report of the Turtle Bay action as a Texas class battleship. [12] However this does confirm the presence of a Texas during the fighting, the most likely candidate for this ship is the Veiled Huntress.[13]

The Draconis Combine confirmed the capture of a Texas class battleship during Operation Bulldog. The vessel was so heavily damaged that it was scuttled.[14]
