ComStar WarShip Fleet

(Redirected from 2nd Fleet (ComStar))
ComStar WarShip Fleet
Formed 2933
Affiliation ComStar
Parent Command Com Guard

Kept hidden from the Successor States along with the Com Guards for centuries, the ComStar WarShip Fleet was the largest of any post-Star League Inner Sphere power prior to its destruction during the Jihad.[1]


Along with the capture of Terra as part of Operation Silver Shield, a large volume of former SLDF material was captured and mothballed by the newly formed organization. Included in this was a large number of battered and shattered SLDF WarShips in the Sol system; while the Order advised the various House Lords that those left were irretrievably lost, they set about preserving and repairing the most promising.[1]

With the formation of the ComStar Guards and Militia this WarShip fleet was also activated and new ships such as the Dante and Faslane classes also created, but the extreme secrecy required eventually resulted in a freeze on expansion of the fleet. While a token defense force was hidden in the Terran system, the bulk was hidden in the uninhabited Luyten 68-28 and Ross 248 systems.[1]

Even with the public unveiling of the Com Guards, the Blessed Order held back on revealing how powerful they really were and the fleet remained in hiding. This changed with the Clan Invasion and the arrival of Clan WarShip fleets, though by mutual agreement by Anastasius Focht and Ulric Kerensky WarShip combat was avoided during the Battle of Tukayyid.[1]

With the increasing size of the Successor State fleets, the ever-present Clans and the secular ComStar's desire for openness, the Order revealed the existence of the fleet to a shocked Inner Sphere. However the location of the fleet's home bases remained hidden as a security precaution.[1]

The years after Tukayyid have seen the loss of the vital Titan Yards to the Word of Blake as well as the fleet engaging in offensive operations for the first time during the reformed Star League's assault on Clan Smoke Jaguar. The Order pledged a number of ships to both Operation Bulldog and Task Force Serpent, losing the Sovetskii Soyuz-class Harmonious Thought and Lola III-class Leander during the disastrous assault on Luzerne and the Essex-class Emerald and Starlight on Huntress, but most returned intact. The fleet suffered a crippling blow during the Jihad, the bulk being lost during Case White, the Order's ill-fated assault on the Blakist-held Terran system.[1]
