Retribution-Class Battleship Designated “Tiamat’s Claw”
Allegiance: Imperial Crusade
This old and venerable vessel has a long and storied history of service to the Imperium. The machine spirit of the ship is rather stubborn and has been said to impart that quality on those who sit upon the command throne. The ship sports the standard armaments of a Retribution ship, bristling with weapon batteries on her flanks and the typical dorsal Lance batteries. Sitting above the bridge is a golden monument showcasing beautiful seraphic figures of the Emperor and some of his most renowned Saints.
“Tiamt’s Claw” was en-route from her last battlefront for some routine and needed repairs at the nearest starport that can accommodate her size and needs. However she was rerouted to support the war effort in Adrantis. One can only hope that the problems with her engines and a few sensors will not prove too much of a hampering for the vessel.
Ship Commander: Commodore Balthazar Granzt
An aged and venerable ship commander who has sat the command throne of “Tiamat’s Claw” for the majority of his adult life. A terrible injury during a boarding action almost left him permanently crippled but thanks to the work of a talented tech-priest he was fitted with an exo-frame that allowed him to keep using his legs as though he had never been hurt.
