Tactical view

ANS Washington is an Alliance class 1 carrier in Starlancer.

Description[edit | edit source]

The ANS Washington was developed and battle tested extensively during the Europa Conflict. It was active throughout the campaign and was the most successful of all the Alliance Strike carriers. The Washington's onboard squadron, the 110th Pumas, has been assigned to the carrier since its launch in 2152 and has shared many battle honors.

On March 6 2161, Washington and the ANS Yamato were involved in a push far into Coalition lines in recent operations, destroying a number of enemy convoys, as well as a Coalition forward supply base. Although Coalition forces attempted to counter attack, further losses along their front lines denied them reinforcements. The aggressive tactics paid dividends, as the Coalition was steadily forced onto the defensive. [1]

Encounters[edit | edit source]

  • Mission 2: The Washington is briefly encountered as the 45th link up with a veteran outfit, its Pumas.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The ship's squadron is referred to as the 109th in the ITAC description.

  1. Transcripts: "March 6, 2161. Alliance forces, including the Carriers Yamato and Washington, pushed far into Coalition lines in recent operations, destroying a number of enemy convoys, as well as a Coalition forward supply base. Although Coalition forces attempted to counter attack, further losses along their front lines denied them reinforcements. Once again new aggressive tactics seem to be paying off, as the Coalition is forced onto the defensive. Admiral Caldwell is now almost certainly going to be voted in as the First Alliance President, after his main challenger, Terrance Hanlay, withdrew from the leadership contest. Hanlay, who refused to be interviewed, sent a press release stating that he was pulling out of the race due to ill health."
