History[edit]

In 3061 the Potemkin-class carrier CDS Kraken was a WarShip in service with the Clan Diamond Shark touman.[1][2]

In 3078 the Kraken served as a part of Task Force EARTHBOUND, the WarShip flotilla responsible for clearing the naval defenses around Terra as a part of the allied coalition efforts to capture the planet from the Word of Blake.[3]

The 422nd Strike Cluster is stationed in 3085 as garrison force.[4]

The ship was renamed to Fox ArcShip and assigned to the Fox Khanate.

In 3145 the Kraken served as the heart of a mobile production facility.[5] This production facility was known as Manufacturing Plant SFF-FK2 and produced Griffin IIC BattleMechs.[6]

Notes[edit]

  • It was confirmed via a question in the "Ask The Writers" forum of the official Catalyst Game Labs forum that the Tracy had been renamed the Marshal Ney:
The Diamond Shark fleet (what survived from the Jihad) was turned into ArcShips or traded to the Snow Ravens for vessels to turn into ArcShips.

Terror of the Deep --> traded to CSR (Lynn McKenna)
Nagasawa --> Talismantia (Spina Beta)
Space Hunter --> Caleuche (Tiburon Gamma)
Tracy --> traded to CSR (Marshal Ney)
