Great Coyote Spirit

Great Coyote Spirit
Vessel Profile
Type WarShip
Class Nightlord


The flagship of the Clan Coyote naval forces within the clan touman, CCS Great Coyote Spirit was a Nightlord-class battleship and in 3061 was assigned to the Golden Keshik.[1]

During the Wars of Reaving the Great Coyote Spirit was involved in the defense of Tamaron from Clan Steel Viper in late 3074. The Steel Viper force attacking Tamaron consisted of most of the Steel Viper touman, spearheaded by the Leviathan-class battleship CSV Perigard Zalman, which arrived with the Steel Viper flotilla in the Tamaron system on the 7th of December 3074 and immediately began to fight its way towards the planet in what became the largest naval battle in the Pentagon Worlds since Operation KLONDIKE. Although the Perigard Zalman was ultimately defeated, the Steel Viper forces were able to reach the planet, with the Great Coyote Spirit being the last Coyote vessel to fight in the system, finally surrendering to the Steel Vipers a week after the planetary assault began.[2]

The Great Coyote Spirit was not listed within the Coyote touman by 3085,[3] indicating that the ship was most likely destroyed or abandoned during the Wars of Reaving.
