EUS Dupleix

IMG_4658

The Cassard-class Heavy Destroyer EUS Dupleix served as the European Union flagship at the opening of the Pan-Eurasian War. Like it’s commander Admiral Dupont, the ship was powerful but old fashioned. The French battleship was an effective deterrent against smaller Coalition warships in the opening stages of the conflict.

She was later routed by the ‘7th Heaven’ mercenary squadron of the Tailored Saints whose modern interceptors made light work of the ship’s outdated fighter defences. This watershed moment and led to a post-war rush modernisation of Union forces, though the bulk of the EU naval forces remained sturdy, old fashioned ships until the middle of the Third Age.
