Petral Coost, a Usean Allied Forces landing ship

Landing ships are vessels designed to transport vehicles and cargo across water.



Landing ships were fielded for decades in the Strangereal universe but how far back their deployment goes is unknown.

Belkan War

Usean coup d'état

During the Usean coup d'état, landing ships were utilised by both the Usean Allied Forces and the Usean Rebel Forces. During the rebel's bomber attack on Anchorhead, a landing ship, callsign Leonid, was seen heading west for unknown reasons. The ship was later sunk by Scarface Squadron.[1] During Operation Alphaville, the Usean Allied Forces deployed Petral Coost to Rocky Island in order to assist Scarface Squadron in destroying Turntable, a geothermal power plant. After Petral Coost reached the shore, a landing team was deployed in order to open the vents so that Phoenix could fly in and destroy the core. This mission was a success.[2]

Continental War

ISAF used landing ships during Operation Bunker Shot with the objective to retake the mainland from Erusea with the help of Mobius 1.[3] Landing ships were used once again by the ISAF during Operation Autumn Thunder.[4]

The Osean Maritime Defense Force fielded a fleet of landing ships over the course of the Lighthouse War. During Operation Sighthound, the OFS Puffin was deployed to capture the submarine carrier Alicorn but was later heavily damaged by the rogue vessel.[8] During Operation Giant's Step, the landing ships Ptarmigan and Pheasant were deployed to land troops at Farbanti port.[9] During Operation Reflux, the landing ships Sunbird, Bunting, and Wagtail were tasked with evacuating surviving troops off of Tyler Island.[10]
