The Western Alliance fleet is composed of a variety of designs originating in all of its member nations. Although the lack of unification and standardization is a detriment for logistics, it also gives the Alliance a flexibility unmatched by the standard, universal designs of the Coalition.
Following the Deimos Betrayal at the beginning of The Sol War, this industrial output coupled with Alliance losses resulted in a temporary numeric superiority between 3 and 2 to 1 in the Coalition's favor.
Capital ships[edit | edit source]
Alliance capital ships are high priority targets for Coalition torpedo bombers and as such are frequently in need of protection. Capital ships are distinguished by the prefix ANS: Alliance Naval Ship.
