Technical and Historical Notes

The Jeanne D’Arc was a Ra Cailum class cruiser used by the Earth Federation Forces. Named after the 15th century French historical figure, the ship was part of a battleship class that was 60 years old by the time of the Zanscare war in UC 0153. The ship was updated with some modern equipment, including a beam shield generator. Captained by Mubarac Stern, the ship conducted joint operations with the League Militaire throughout the war. Near the war’s end, Cronicle Asher’s ZMT-S34S Rig Contio destroyed the ship’s bridge, killing Stern. However, the ship remained mostly intact and performed a suicide attack on a Zanscare flagship.
