The Earth Alliance’s Agamemnon class battleship was primarily designed to serve as a fleet flagship. It was armed with high-energy cannons and vulcan guns, and its two linear catapults allowed it to launch TS-MA2 Moebius mobile armors more quickly than either the Drake class or the Nelson class battleships. One ship, the Menelaos, served as the flagship of the 8th Fleet and was commanded by Adm. Lewis Halberton. The Menelaos was destroyed in battle on 13 February C.E. 71 while trying to protect the Archangel during atmospheric reentry. After the Bloody Valentine War, the Alliance upgraded the Agamemnon class to include an internal mobile suit launch deck in its forward section.
