The Tyrian Lordship class Destroyer Escort is a warship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Tyrian Lordship class Destroyer Escorts served with the navy of the Tyrian Lordships, a Rule of Man-era splinter state centered on the world of Tyr, lying close to the center of Trojan Reach Sector.

The few surviving examples of the class are historical artifacts housed in museums or kept in private collections.

Basic Ship Characteristics[edit]

Following the Imperial Navy and IISS Universal Ship Profile and data, additional information is presented in the format shown here. The small craft factor indicates the number of squadrons (of ten craft) carried on the ship. Tonnage on the universal ship profile is shown in kilotons (thousands of tons) where necessary. [1]

Basic Ship Characteristics [2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Tyrian Lordship class Destroyer Escorts were Rule of Man and Long Night-era vessels that served with the navy of Tyr. The world was a major commercial and industrial hub during the period and was one of the dominant powers on the Sindalian Main, controlling a brutal feudal polity called the Tyrian Lordships. It regularly came into conflict with Aslan "Second Sons" as they spread to trailing in search of new territories, and the reliable Destroyer Escorts saw frequent action before the eventual collapse of the Lordships state. A number of examples of the class are known to have been captured by the Aslan and pressed into service on their behalf.

They served alongside Tyrian Lordship class Light Cruisers and Tyrian Lordship class Destroyers.
